Today’s Prayer in on SUBMISSION TO AUTHORITY!
This topic relates to obedience really well. All of their lives, our children will find themselves in situations where they have to submit to someone—whether it’s parents, teachers, bosses, government officials, or God Himself!
Sometimes it’s really hard to submit to authority because we want our way! However, training them now to respect authority and submit to it will set them for success in the future.
As you pray specifically about your sons submitting to authority, here are the 10 scripture references to use (from page 16 in the ebook):
1 Corinthians 16:16
2 Chronicles 30:8
1 Peter 5:5
I encourage you to pray “without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) today. I try to tell myself things to help me remember to pray…like every time I walk by a certain place in the house (or in your work place), I will pray. For instance, every time I walk by the boys’ rooms I will pray. Or every time I go to the refrigerator, I’ll pray. Ask God to help you to be in a spirit of prayer throughout the day.

As I was reading my devotional this morning from Voices of the Faithful,
I read a really good quote about how awesome our God is! “Big things happen when small people ask big things of a Big God!” So, let’s get asking! J
For our comment today, will you please answer the study question from p 14?
“Have you ever considered how teaching obedience leads naturally to a deeper understanding of the Gospel?”
Also, it was really good to “meet” you guys on yesterday’s post! It’s really neat that we share the exact same anniversary with Jana. How cool is that! If you haven’t had a chance to introduce yourself, will you please leave a comment there too? Thanks!
Have an awesome day in prayer!
