Today is Thursday, February 16th, 2006; Karen's Korner #739
About a month ago, a friend shared a "Praying for Our Children" calendar. It is a generic monthly calendar with days 1 - 31. I liked it because so many times we whisper a prayer for a child's relationship at school or for help in winning the big game.
But what about the longer-lasting characteristics for the young people in our world? Here are a couple of examples:
For the 16th day of the month, it says:
"Father God, help my children make every effort to do what leads to peace."
For yesterday, the 15th, it says:
"Lord, I pray my children would be rich in good deeds, generous, and willing to share."
I Timothy 6:18
Tomorrow's, the 17th:
"Heavenly Father, grant that my children would be filled be filled with joy given by the Holy Spirit."
I Thessalonians 1:6
Other days have words like intergrity, kindness, hope, patience, and gratitude. If you would like a copy, email me and I will forward you an attachment copy. It is quite printable on a regular sheet of typing paper.
If you don't have children at home, they can still use your prayers. What about grandchildren? Or some other child/person in your life?
