Y’all, we’ve been praying for our girls to be true worshipers and, wow! So many of you have shared with me how you are seeing these prayers have such an immediate impact.
I’m so excited to share the second part of this prayer focus with you on the December prayer calendar.
DECEMBER PRAYER CALENDAR — TRUE WORSHIP
One of my favorite passages on worship is Mary’s Magnificat. Upon hearing that she will become the Messiah’s mother, her response is full of the very grace and humility that God had seen in choosing her for this incredible task.
And Mary said,
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
And his mercy is for those who fear him
from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with his arm;
he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
he has brought down the mighty from their thrones
and exalted those of humble estate;
he has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel,
in remembrance of his mercy,
as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his offspring forever.”
Luke 1:46-55 ESV
Such a true worshiper!
As we enter this season of anticipation for the coming Christ, may we be like Mary — ever seeking to praise the Lord and magnify His mighty name. And may we encourage our daughters to do the same.
Join me and thousands of moms around the world as we continue to pray for our girls to be true worshipers. I can’t imagine a better way to end 2017, can you?
