Warrior Prayers: Day 2 (Obedience)
How did it go yesterday? I hope you were able to find a time to pray for your sons that you can keep committed to. I know it's hard with so many little ones running around, but make that time or pockets and time and keep it!
Today we pray for Obedience (page 13).
Oh, my, I struggle with this area on a daily basis. My son's favorite word is "no" and as much as I coach him for the correct response when I ask him to do things (yes, mommy), I still come up against his sinful nature and it's DAILY and all day long. I'm so worn out. I'm so thankful for God's Word to pray over my son. I know that consistency now will pay off in the future. I'm praying today for Obedience!
Thoughts from Brooke:
Apparently God takes the way we raise our sons quite seriously.
Prayer. This battle is best fought on your knees.
From the Leader's Guide:
Obeying God is ultimately linked to loving him.
"Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him." John 14:21
As we pray for our sons to have obedient hearts today, let's examine our own, and ask our Savior to help us live out His great love for us so that our sons will see how truly valuable it is.
Tomorrow (9/8) we pray for Submission to Authority (page 14).
