I grew up with prayer warrior grandparents. My definition of a prayer warrior is someone who is diligent in going before the throne of God in prayer, presenting requests to Him. I want to be like my grandparents and other people of that generation who knew the importance of prayer and thought highly enough of it to dedicate many minutes and hours to it throughout the day. I especially want to be a prayer warrior for my husband and kids. I have been reading through a plethora of books on prayer lately, and one made note that if I am not going to pray for my kids, there are likely very few others who will. Point taken.
Some of the books that I have been reading through have helped me immensely. They are:
I love the fact that the cards are easily portable so I can throw them in my purse when I’m going out (say when I know I have a wait at the doctor’s office or elsewhere). I’ve also taken to writing out a special verse a week to pray for the boys and then leaning the cards up against the window above my sink so I can pray while I clean the kitchen. It’s been a really good reminder that not only am I called to try and discipline and teach my boys right from wrong, I’ve also been called to pray for them. What a privilege and a huge responsibility that I do not want to be lax in.
Anyone else have any good prayer tips?
