Good morning, fellow prayer warriors! We’ve made it one week on our prayer journey! I’m praying that we will all have the strength to persevere in this challenge and for God to move in the hearts of our sons.
Today’s Prayer in on
HAVING A SERVANT’S HEART…
My husband and my older son both have a servant’s heart. I do believe they are both gifted in that area. Many times, my husband feels that he is behind in his work, but it’s because he is such a servant that he will stop and help anyone that needs it. I love that about him. He also helps out around the house so much! I always say that he does all the “gross jobs” like cleaning toilets, taking out trash, mopping, yard work, etc. And when he gets mad or upset, he CLEANS! I really like that too!
Evan really likes to serve as well. He doesn’t always want to keep his room clean or pick up after himself, but he loves to help when there is a need. Until we moved in December, he was helping at our local food pantry every week. He LOVED spending time with the people there. He also enjoys helping when we have any church event or church need. I was encouraged to see him help just last Thursday when our church had a huge flood. He worked with his daddy ALL day, cleaning the mess. And then, I was proud to see him work so hard last Saturday at our church car wash…it wasn’t a fundraiser—we were just showing the love of Christ to the community. And Evan worked so hard!
I’m praying that our 4 year-old will follow in his daddy’s and big brother’s footsteps as well. I’m sure he will. He’s just young. This has made me think that we need to be more intentional in giving him opportunities to serve as well.
I encourage you to think of ways your family can serve in your home, in your church, and in your community. Let’s find ways we can teach our children the value of serving others. Will you share some of your ideas in the comments? I’d love to hear them!
