Praying for Boys
When they’re little—running to their next adventure with capes flying behind—boys don’t know how to guard their own hearts. When they’re older—pedal to the metal, and music blaring in the background—they sometimes forget about the importance of keeping their hearts safe from the world around them.
But in all stages of life, moms can can do it for them—guard their hearts, and cover their grand adventures—through our prayers.
Together, we’ll learn to put on the armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-17) for ourselves and our sons in prayer as we explore praying for our boys from head to toe. In the process, we might even realize just how valuable and powerful we are as praying moms.
Oh, Father God!
How I adore my boys. May you be at work in their hearts, drawing them closer to you. Protect them, lead them, guide them. Help me to be faithful to pointing them to you. May they pursue you with all of their hearts. Teach them to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with you (Micah 6:8).
Thank you for this 5 day prayer challenge. May you use it to transform MY heart and my prayers for my boys.
For your glory! Amen.
