Welcome to day day nine of Beautiful Wives Prayer Challenge.
We spent the first four days praying for ourselves, the last four days for our husbands and today, we will be praying for our homes and our children. The next three days are for our children specifically.
The theme for today is “Thanksgiving and Dedication.”
We would be thanking God for our homes and the children He has blessed our homes with. We will also be dedicating our home and our children to the Lord as well. There is power in giving thanks and that I have come to know and experience. Sometimes, just being thankful for all I have keeps my heart busy with joy that I am not even aware of the things I don’t have that God is fixing on my behalf.
Of recent, I got wind of something that was happening within my home and I just thank God for mercy that he showed us all the while this was going on without me having any knowledge about it. Upon my discovery, I have not ceased to dedicate my home every day and every member of my family. Leaving your family in the utmost care of God and allowing God do his bidding with them per time will take a lot of burden off you as you can trust God to never fail you like man would.
James 1:17 (NCV) “Every good action and every perfect gift is from God. These good gifts come down from the Creator of the sun, moon, and stars, who does not change like their shifting shadows.”
This was the verse the Lord gave us when we had our first child and this has become a verse that is homely to us as a family. It reminds us of the fact that our home, our children and each other is a gift from God. How do you see your home – husband and children? Are they gifts from God or nothing special?
Isaiah 54:13 (NCV) “All your children will be taught by the LORD, and they will have much peace.”
The most peaceful thing any parent can have is knowing that their children know the Lord for themselves.
Joshua 24:11 (NCV) “But if you don’t want to serve the LORD, you must choose for yourselves today whom you will serve. You may serve the gods that your ancestors worshiped when they lived on the other side of the Euphrates River, or you may serve the gods of the Amorites who lived in this land. As for me and my family, we will serve the LORD.””
Oh how beautiful to have your home is constantly accommodating the Holy Spirit. Everyone connected to the Trinity always and being guided by God is the best feeling we should all desire.
- Today you are not restricted by points. You have a blank cheque. Look within and thank God for everything and also pray about what you desire for your home and your children. Pray as led. No restrictions. No limits.
DECLARATIONS AND CONFESSIONS
- Lord I confess my indifference many a times to the blessing of a beautiful home filled with love and peace. I confess that some times, I concentrate on what I do not have than look within to see the great things you have blessed me with, wrapped in human forms.
- I declare that from today, we will lead a grateful life everyday knowing that everything God creates is good and should be received with thanksgiving because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.
These I have confessed and declared in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen!!!
Thanks for joining in today. See you tomorrow when we pray about protection and guidance for our children.
God bless you beautiful.
