May. Seriously? I can’t believe it’s already time to share the May Prayer Calendar. 2017 is FLYING by, right?
Last month we began our second theme for the year—ENCOURAGE. I loved praying for our girls to become encouragers to others. I think about women in Scripture like Lydia and Abigail and all the Marys who were beautiful examples of the value of investing in and supporting others. I am sure you have the same urgency for your daughter to be someone who is committed to being an encourager as I have for mine.
Speaking of encouraging, I loved what Fayelle shared about her daughters’ imitating her as she strives to imitate Christ. And Brenda was certainly an encourager to all of us who have ever felt like we may have ruined our kids.
But, you’re here for the new calendar, right?
May Prayer Calendar: Encouraging Her to Learn and Grow
May’s prayer calendar is based on Scriptures we can pray for our girls to learn and grow in their faith. As moms, we try to provide our girls the resources and tools and opportunities they need to experience a closer relationship with the Lord — but if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s this: we can’t grow for them.
That’s why May’s prayers are so valuable … we’re praying that our girls will have both the desire and discipline to learn and grow in their walk with the Lord. I feel sort of like John when he wrote his third epistle:
I have no greater joy than this: to hear that my children are walking in truth. 3 John 1:4
It’s true, right, our deepest heart’s desire is that our daughters will walk in the truth of who they are in Christ and the life He has called and equipped them to live.
I hope you’ll join us as we spend May praying and encouraging our daughters to learn and grow spiritually. And, this is a great time to invite someone else to join us. Maybe you have a friend with a daughter and you’ve been meaning to tell her about these prayer calendars, how about doing it today! Share this post with her on Facebook or send her the link (cut and paste this ~~> http://wp.me/p7hBOs-k4 <~~).
