What a joy my children and grandchildren are to me! They truly are the "wind beneath my wings".
I pray for them today.
That you will watch over them - keep them safe, keep them healthy.
Grow them in the Lord, in the wisdom and grace that is yours.
Help them to make the right and good choices and decisions. Those that will lead them in your ways, keep them close to your heart.
Father, I pray that you will go before them today and bring people into their lives that will point and lead the way to Jesus.
People that are witnesses of your love and your grace. People that will encourage.
Those that will strengthen our kids and grandkids - "as iron sharpens iron".
Father, I pray for the salvation of each one of our kids, and our grandkids. Open their hearts - draw them to the Cross. Keep them there! The greatest gift that I could have? Just to know that each one is safe in the arms of Jesus!
Father, I pray also that you will speak a word into their hearts = make them to know just how much I love them. How I long to be a part of their lives. How very much I miss them.
Just a momma and a grannee's heart's plea this morning!
O Father! Be the Strong Deliverer and Great Defender that you are - to our kids and grandkids.
There are so many bullies in the world.
As adults it is hard enough to deal with bullies, but how much harder and fearful when kids must deal with them.
O Father! I worry about our kids and our grandkids!
Please, help them.
Build that hedge of protection about them. Keep them still within it. Keep them safe within it.
Father, I pray that no weapon formed against them shall prosper!
And I pray for those that would try to bully our kids and grandkids.
Pray that you will send your angels with flaming swords to stand there before our kids and grandkids - guard and protect them. Open the eyes of those that are bullies - make them to see the angels!
Just like you did with Balaam and the donkey.
You are the same - yesterday, today and forever!
And just as you allowed David to strike down the giant Goliath - give our kids and grandkids that same faith, that same direction ... and help them to strike down the giants, the bullies in their lives today!
Hold the treasure of my heart close to yours.
In Jesus' Name I pray ...
