Warrior Prayers -- Day Five

21 Days of Prayer for our Sons…

Today’s Prayer in on AVOIDING PRIDE...

“We take such pride in our sons, don’t we? When we see one with a natural bent toward academics we call him gifted. When we see one who excels in sports we call him an exceptional athlete—bound for the pros. Sometimes we even place pressure on our sons to be who we wish we could have been. And this can be a form of pride.”

We should “allow God to grow our boys into the men HE wants them to be. Sometimes, we have to let go of our dreams for our sons, and deliberately choose to pick up God’s dreams from them instead.”
