From the day I found out I was going to have a baby, I began praying for his salvation and his spouse. If you're like me, there are some days that we just don't pray for our children like we should. When I think about that, it makes me cringe. To know there is something more important than my son to take me away from praying for him like I should is unpleasant. If we don't PRAY for our children, they will fall PREY to the world.
Pray for Our Children
For several weeks, I’ve been busily working on creating a Prayer/Devotional Journal. I want to be able to keep everything together for as long as I can, instead of having 100 books to store when I’m finished using them. While I’ve been working on this journal, I came across many ways to pray for my son. I personally like these 10 ways best of all. These are things that I can pray about each day, instead of breaking them down into a certain day or month.
