A Prayer for Single Parents - October 23rd
By: Leazer Jones, Graphically Speaking... Creations of Thought, Columbia, MD
We come to You as humbly as we know how, thanking You for being our Sovereign God, who sees and knows all! We realize that You have made us in Your image, for Your purpose and glory, and we praise You for loving us, and leading our footsteps. Your Word tells us that we should train up a child in the way they should go, and when they get old the will not depart from it. Your Word is quick, powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword, and everything that You speak gives life to us. We ask in the name of Jesus that you continue to lead all single parents to follow what You say, regardless to society's standards. We trust that there is nothing too hard for You to do, and even when we don't know what to do, our eyes are on You! So right now, show us what we should do, according to Your Word!
Remind each single parent that, just like You told the children of Israel, in Deuteronomy 11:18-19, " Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up!" Father God, show parents how to instill and teach Your ways, as You teach the parents, to pray, admonish, and show respect. We pray that You bind up every evil spirit, that speaks into the ear of the parent or child, or shows them things that appear to be right to do but are not! Let the Blood cover everything that the devil tries to do, IN JESUS' NAME! We count it done! AMEN!
