The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. – Psalm 19:8 (NIV)
- My Prayer Today
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for your goodness and mercy to me. Thank You that you pick me up when I fall, that You are faithful when I am not, that You give me joy when I feel sad or down. I pray for joy to be made manifest in the lives of my children. I pray that they will look to You for joy in times of sadness, that comfort and joy will come from You all the days of their lives and that they will seek You first. Keep my children safe when they are away from our home. Put your hedge of protection over each of them I pray.
In Jesus Name,
My inspiration for this series loosely comes from a prayer card published by Navpress and is available for purchase at this link. This would be a great bookmark for your Bible. I am in no way affiliated with NavPress. I also want to mention my friend Marcy at Ben and Me whom I am joining with for this challenge. She has some great resources available on her site as she is praying for her child’s head, shoulders, knees and toes.
