How wonderful would it feel to have confidence and peace about the school year ahead?
Your child is in God’s hands, and although it isn’t always easy to “let go and let God”, we can know for certain that His Word says it is true!
He tells us that he’ll never leave or forsake your child (Hebrews 13:5) and that His right hand will guide their going out and coming in (Psalm 121:8).
As parents, we play an important part in the success of their school year as well! We can encourage them, be there for them and, most powerful, use Scripture to PRAY over our children.
It’s not always easy to find time to pray and sometimes we struggle with what to pray about!
Prayer is an area I’ve struggled with in my adult life. I learned a lot of rote prayers in my childhood (and don’t get me wrong, those are great too!) but didn’t start developing the discipline of a personal prayer time until I was older, after a renewal of my faith as a college freshman.
Maybe it should be simple, but sometimes I got confused trying to figure out HOW to pray, WHAT to pray, and the true purpose of it altogether! A consistent prayer life is something I still wrestle through as a busy woman, wife and mom.
We know that “the prayer of the righteous is powerful and avails much”, according to the book of James.
And so we throw up a prayer on our way to school drop-off in the mornings, quickly ask for God to bless our family as we fall into exhausted sleep at night, and try to say the right thing during Bible study prayer time. And those prayers are definitely listened to and answered!
Consider how it would feel to have a strong and consistent prayer life, especially when it comes to your kids. We can set reminders for ourselves or study methods of prayer, and that is okay!
But is this a time in our busy lives where we could benefit from a simple guide that will give us specific ideas for prayer and show us just how to use Scripture in our prayer time? Could we use some prompts to keep us focused when we are trying to pray while fighting other distracting thoughts?
I think so! That’s why I created this Scripture and prayer-focused devotional. It’s for busy moms just like you—and me too–who want to nurture our prayer life and cover our kids with prayer as they go through the school year, but are just so busy that we’re overwhelmed with where to start.
