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.

In Orlando or on Cocoa Beach, I have seen a sky writer. His message is usually short: JESUS  LUVS  U or GOD (heart) U. By the time he gets to the last letter of the last word, the first word is disappearing.  So where do the letters go? Through the eyes of a four year old, he might say, “Oh, I know–maybe Jesus has an eraser!”

We all have haunting mistakes that we’d like to erase: a spoken unkind or cruel word, letting a friend down, an invitation that wasn’t given, haunting painful memories that still sting, a humiliating event that forever eats at you. We all have them.

What about the preschoolers I teach or come in contact with this week? They are still learning social skills such as sharing, taking turns, speaking kindly, and including others in play at school or for play dates. Help me, Father, to demonstrate Your faithful love. Help me to teach others about forgiveness when they are hurt. I want these kids to know, Father, that Jesus is The Eraser!

“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His faithful love toward those who fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” (Psalm 103:11-12, HCSB)

In the powerful name of Jesus, God’s Son,
