A Passage and A Prayer... Matthew 7:24-26

Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house upon the rock. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the wind blew, and burst against the house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded up on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does not act upon them, will be like a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand. And the rains descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and it fell, and great was its fall.
Matthew 7: 24-26

Dear Strong Creator,
I pray my children will "build their house upon the ROCK!" Give them this desire, dear Lord. Keep their heart and mind away from the foolish "offerings" of this world - outward appearance, success, power, prestige, temporary pleasure. Help my children to recognize these things for what they are, not what they appear to be. Give them a heart's desire for YOU ALONE, the rock of their salvation, their fortress, their deliverer.
