Father God, I lift up all children today in prayer as you guard their hearts and minds from influences in this world that are not from you! The influence of not being invited and the hurt in causes! It’s a ripple effect that Carries on into adulthood! I pray for true friendships in the Body of Christ that are knitted together by your hand and not put together by just human hands! I pray against the spirit of rejection that it doesn’t cause a stumbling block in their walk with you in their life. I pray they follow your Holy Spirit and be given peace and joy as they focus on Your Kingdom! Help them and all children to discern how to live in this world but not be consumed by it by giving them wisdom from only your Holy Spirit! I pray for those who follow you to be only influenced by you! Give them eyes to see as they only follow your Holy Spirit! I pray they are given eyes to see your ways and not be clouded by ways and customs of the world! The gospel has been given through God’s one and only Son Jesus once and for all for everyone! To live out the great commission, sharing the good new about Jesus as Matthew 28:16-20 gives us all a responsibility as disciples of Jesus in all relational groups to reach the world for you one person at a time! Not just telling but living out what we believe is true! At times our kids don’t understand why they are not invited to what their friends are invited to, help them to see you seek your ways as you guard their hearts! You have invited all to be with you forever in heaven wanting no one to perish! Help them to be confident in You and hold on to you!
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
2 Peter 3:8-9 NIV
I lift my heart up to you, a mamma heart broken for my kids along with all the children not invited! Who are continually left out of their friends’ invites. Break my heart for what breaks your heart, mold me to be more like you! Let my heart not wander in my hurt! I’m on my knees lifting up all the mammas who hear the cries of their children wondering why not me! Help those mammas know how to lead their children! God loves you! Help me and everyone to love the way you love, forgive the way you forgive! Guide me and all of us in your truth from the Bible and teach us your ways continually, help us to see as we follow your Holy Spirit! I love you and I am unable to do anything on my own! I need you Father! I chose to follow you all the days of my life! Amen!
