My wife and I are personalizing many of the prayer strategies that we have learned in, “Praying Circles around Your Children,” by Mark Batterson. Last week we showed you how we have created a very specific prayer list for Rosie. Today we are going to talk about choosing Family life verses and speak God’s promises into your family members lives. Batterson writes:
“One of your chief responsibilities as a parent is to be a student of your child. You aren’t just a prophet who speaks into their future; you are also a historian who records their past. You have a unique vantage point as a parent. No one sees the past, present, and future quite like you do. It’s your job to help your children connect the dots between who they were, who they are, and who they are becoming. Part of your role as prophet-historian is to know your children and know Scripture so you can train them in the way they should go.”
After reading this, my wife and I added another layer to Rosie’s prayer protection. We selected two main Bible verses that we pray over Rose everyday. Below I will share the passages along with our prayer for each one.
