Warrior Prayers -- Day 13

21 Days of Prayer for our Sons…

Today’s Prayer in on KINDNESS…

Today, we continue praying for the “fruit of the Spirit” of KINDNESS mentioned in Galatians 5:22.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, KINDNESS, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, against such there is no law.” – Galatians 5:22

It seems that KINDNESS is lacking in our busy “hustle & bustle” world that we live in nowadays. People are so concerned about their “agenda” that they forget to stop & consider others. It is our job as parents to be extremely intentional about going the extra mile and teaching kindness to our children. And the best example that they see is our own.

Brooke states in the Leader’s Guide:

“Remember, kindness is not something that comes naturally. We are selfish, sinful beings who mostly want our own way. Kindness is a learned art, usually caught by experiencing it first-hand from the hands of the people closest to us.”

Can you share how you are teaching your children to be kind in your home and in the world around you?

Today’s verses are:

2 Samuel 2:6

Ephesians 4:32

2 Timothy 2:24

1 Thessalonians 5:15

Colossians 4:6

Romans 12:10

Numbers 6:23-26

Hebrews 13:2

Ephesians 4:32

1 Peter 3:8

Sally Clarkson posted a very encouraging post about kindness on the MOB (Mother of Boys) Society page. It's here and here if you'd like to read it!

Praying for a more KIND heart,


**I just want to encourage you to PERSEVERE through this prayer challenge! I know it's difficult! Some nights I fall into bed & remember that I have forgotten to keep praying for the specific characteristic that day. I just say a prayer then & start over the next day. Satan would like to do anything to keep us from praying to God to better our families! Brooke is even having a giveaway on her blog for anyone that would link up & share how they are doing on this journey. So let us know how you are doing! We can make it one more week!
