Day 2, 3, 4, and 5 of Praying for our children challenge

Sorry, I was away for a couple of days and didn't get my posts up!! Today I am catching up! Here are the things to pray for these days: *Day 2 - Grow in Grace (2 Peter 3:18 - "I pray that my children may grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.")..... to grow in grace and knowledge we will need to have our children reading.....reading the Bible and learning what the Lord expects of them and us as parents!... *Day 3 - Love (Gal. 5:25 & Ephesians 5 - "Grant Lord, that my children may learn to live a life of love, through the Spirit who dwells in them.")..... live a life of love through the spirit that dwells in them, well, first we need to make sure that the RIGHT spirit is dwelling in them. The spirit of the one True God, Jesus Christ!... *Day 4 - Honesty and Integrity (Psalms 25:21 - "May integrity and honesty be their virtue and their protection.")..... Boy, these two attributes are tough in today's world, aren't they? Not too many children or adults for that matter, are very honest or have much integrity. We need to show our children these attributes by example and in God's word, show them how Jesus lived and to follow His example! Strive for excellence!... *Day 5 - Self Control (1 Thess. 5:6 - "Father, help my children not to be like many others around them, but let them be alert and self-controlled in all they do.")..... this I think is one of the toughest attributes for a child to have, self control......we would love to have our children be the "good example", sometimes that's not always the case.....sometimes our children give in to peer pressure in order to be "liked", even though they know that they probably shouldn't. We need to be there for our children and keep them in prayer always!! I know that I have failed at that, but am trying to get back on track......I want God's best for my girls........and I want them to be the best they can be for themselves and for the Lord! Please keep praying!!
