Shifting Prayers


Taking a break today from the series of addiction posts.  My loved one has decided to rededicate their life to the Lord and family relationships.  I am praying and hopeful for the best.  

There will be compromises that will require transparencies and a level of trust.  Pray for me as I traverse new roads and pray for our family as we learn, grow, and walk an unfamiliar path together.

Now, let's shift focus and look at a post I ran across this week that I feel needs sharing.  I've shared it on all my social media because it's too important an issue to skim over.  As usual, it's from Proverbs 31 Ministries.

If your social media feeds have gone from preschool pictures and high school proms to college drop offs and grandbabies, this post is for you.  Mamas, our job has not ended.  It has only shifted.  Please enjoy this post about praying for your grown children.  Then bookmark and save it.

Our grown children still need us and our prayers and support.  They may not want it, realize it, or ask for it - but as their Parents, it's the job God bestowed upon us.  

I often wish my Parents had prayed for me.  (I'm fairly certain they weren't huge praying people.)  I'm sure they thought on and of me often, but I never heard them speak of the Lord and his love for me.  I don't want to repeat that generational tradition.  I want to pray for my boys, and I want them to know they are loved and prayed over.

I hope this post blesses you as much as it blessed me.  Happy Saturday my friends.

"Here are three scriptures to pray for your grown children ...

For their faith:

Lord, I pray You give my child wisdom and revelation so that they may know You better. I pray that the eyes of their heart will be opened so that they can know the hope You have called them to! (Ephesians 1:17-18)

For their choices:

Lord, I pray my child will keep their way pure by guarding it according to Your Word. Let them seek You with all their heart and not wander from Your commandments. (Psalm 119:9-10)

For their protection:

Lord, You are faithful. I pray You will establish and guard them against the evil one. (2 Thessalonians 3:3)

No one loves like a mother, and your prayers may be unknown and unseen but they matter, and so do you!"
