Today is the final day of 10 Days of Homeschooling Girls!
I know most mothers pray over their children daily. We might do it on our own, in our quiet time, or with our hands on them, as we tuck them in safely at night. So often thankfulness wells up in me when I look at my girls throughout the day. Often, I’ll utter a prayer of thanksgiving or a blessing as I see my daughters going through the day-to-day happenings called life.
I was looking through my I Love My Husband Book the other day (yes, I like to read my old letters to him) and an old prayer I wrote out for Eric made me smile. There is something so vulnerable about sharing your personal prayers with someone. I like knowing that Eric knows my innermost thoughts towards him, and that he knows I lift him up to our Lord in so many ways.
Anyway, since this is the Homeschooling Girls Series, I’m sure you’ve guessed where I am going with this. I think it would be a lovely gift to write out a heartfelt prayer for your daughter and share it with her.
If you’re unsure how to start, here are some things you could include:
Thank God for who she is.
Thank God specifically for gifts and talents He’s given her.
Thank God for strengths you see in her walk with Him.
Praise Him for specific blessings and answered prayers in her life lately.
Pray for her future, her walk with God, the choices she’ll be making.
Pray that she would love God and His Word even more.
Pray that she would grow in knowledge, wisdom, and love.
Pray for any upcoming events that are important to her.
Pray that she’ll be a blessing to others.
Pray for her future husband.
Thank God that you get to be her mom.
That should get the ball rolling
Thanks for sticking around these last ten days!
