I will stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of God! And I will praise the Lord, for it is good; I will sing praises to the Lord for it is lovely.- Psalm 135:2-3
Dear Lord, make our hearts a sanctuary of praise to your sweet name. What a beautiful name it is! You are good, you are righteous, you are holy! You are gracious, you are forgiving, you are compassionate...there is no end to You. Mere words are not enough! May we sing of your love and your name all the day long. Amen
And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
I Peter 5:10
Dear God of Grace,
(I ask that) WHEN the inevitable trials of suffering and loss are experienced by each of my children in their lifetime, THEY WOULD CLING TO YOU. Through their various struggles, make them STRONGER in their faith on this earth, while keeping ETERNITY in their heart and mind.
The steadfast of mind Thou wilt keep in perfect peace, because He trusts in Thee. Trust in the Lord forever, for in God the Lord, we have an everlasting Rock.
Isaiah 26: 3-4
Dear God of Peace,
Please help my children to keep their mind steadfastly focused on YOU. Fill them with your perfect peace as they trust in You alone - become the everlasting rock to their souls.
The unfolding of Thy words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
Psalm 119: 130
Dear Radiant One,
Cause my children to crave Your word, understand Your word, and LIVE by Your word. Make them wise beyond their years, I pray.
