Good morning, Father

During 2017 help me to be faithful in my prayer walk. It is most important that we who serve preschoolers remember to pray for the next generation. Teach me how to pray blessings for these children and their families.

Father, help me with strategy to resist attacks of the enemy. You are the Commander of my little army! I have spent two days working in my yard, pulling weeds so that I could plant flowers. Those weeds had roots that went deep and wove underground for miles! Well, not really but they were far reaching. If only, I had done a better job in the early spring. If only I had gone ahead and cleared out weeds when I saw them. If only . . . .

I read an article by Renee Davis from TheStay@HomeScribe. I am really liking this gal’s writings. If weeds are like our enemy in life, we need strategy to resist his attacks that go inward and deep. Here are a few ideas:

Pray Passionately. Heart felt, specific prayers that happen often, pierce heaven and causes God’s supremacy to rain down and drown out the enemy’s war cries. So that, You are filled with His supernatural power to over come. Trust God, your adversary is sent a message. Psalm 138:3–“On the day I called, You answered me; You increased strength within me.”

Read Scripture. The enemy wants you to think you are too busy to read the Bible so that he can keep you in the dark. God’s Word is life and true wisdom is housed here. Commit to read Scripture every day so that you can get wise to your enemy! Psalm 119:105– “Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.”

Thank Him. From sun up to sun down we have hectic schedules.The enemy wants you to focus on the haves and have nots. Make a list and purposefully and consciously give thanks. Giving God thanks opens a door for his presence and blessings in our lives. “A thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.” John 10:10

As children of God we are loved, strong, upheld, masterfully created, brave and free. God’s end result will cultivate blooming blessings. Not only do I want this for myself, but for the preschoolers I encounter.
