Earlier this week, Kelli wrote about how she gets up early and prays scripture for her children. Consider me inspired…well, all except the “getting up early” part.
Later that evening as I was reading my daily Bible reading, I found the perfect scripture to pray for The Eldest:
“My prayer for you is that you will overflow more and more with love for others, and at the same time keep on growing in spiritual knowledge and insight, for I want you always to see clearly the difference between right and wrong, and to be inwardly clean, no one being able to criticize you from now until our Lord returns. May you always be doing those good, kind things which show that you are a child of God, for this will bring much praise and glory to the Lord.” ~ Phillipians 1:9-11 (The Living Bible)
I also decided to seek out verses for The Youngest. This is what I found:
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
and Matthew 6:25-26 that she might let go of worry and understand how precious she is to God.
What about you? Do you pray scripture for your children (or for anyone)? Please share them!
