Warrior Prayers - Day 9

21 Days of Prayer for our Sons…

Today’s Prayer in on LOVE…

Today, we begin praying for each specific “fruit of the Spirit” 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

To have all of these “fruits” evident in all of our lives is a very worthy goal! It’s how God wants us to live.

Brooke states in the Leaders Guide that two of her favorite verses to pray for her sons are today’s verse (Galatians 5:22) and Ezekiel 36:26.

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” –Ezekiel 36:36

She also talked about how love can’t really be all that it should be apart from God. The Bible says that God IS love. For us mathematicians, using the word “IS” is the same as using the word “EQUALS.” In other words, GOD = LOVE. They are the same! There is no real love apart from God, and God is behind all real and genuine acts of love.

Because we use the word “love” so loosely in today’s world, how can we begin to make changes in our life and our vocabulary to help our sons understand the true meaning of the word?

Today’s verses are:

1 John 2:15

1 John 4:7

1 Peter 1:22

Ephesians 5:28

1 Thessalonians 3:12

2 John 1:6

1 John 3:18

Jude 1:2

Deuteronomy 6:5

1 John 4:10

Pray for God to help you show LOVE to everyone around you today!

I’m praying & believing!
