The joy we find in the Lord should be passed on to our children. It is our privilege to raise them up in the ways of the Lord.
Psalm 127:2,3 (KJV)
2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
3 Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, I pray that my heart continually is for You and not this world. May I not fall victim to temptation but be led on Your righteous path. May my love for You be extended in the work place and the way I treat my family. I know that greater things can happen with You in my life. Help me to live out my faith. I pray that my labors will not be vain. May You do a work in my life. Help my mind focus on building up Your kingdom. Help me to love my children as You love them. Help me raise them up to know You. May the Spirit of God shine down upon me. Empower me by the Spirit. I pray that You do use me in a big way. Take my hand and carry me forth. My heart is Yours. I love You. Amen.
