The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

The Love Month.... Day 3

Glitter Graphics

February 3

Today I just LOVE that Sam reminded me on the way to school that we hadnt said our morning prayer!!
We were almost to school.... I was just listening to the music and he was playing his DS. He said, "Mom, are you forgetting something?"
Right then I remembered but I said "What?"
Sam replied "Our morning prayer???"
I felt bad that I had actually forgotten but LOVED that he remembered and this time meant as much to him as it did to me.

A friend Amy had just recently posted on praying for our kids.
I was so glad that she did!! I felt the same way she did!! I knew I needed to have prayer time with Sam in the mornings, but I too just got caught up in the craziness of the morning rush of getting to school! Prayer in the mornings sets the tone for a good day! What a more perfect place but in the car on the way to school. Also its teaching Sam that he needs to have his morning prayer time. The same thing that happened to me today about forgetting had just happend to Amy yesterday and she posted about it here.
Thanks so much Amy for sharing your posts on praying for our kids. Im so happy God put that on your heart because now we are doing it too and you are so right, Prayer is so powerful!!

That is so sweet that he remembered! I have a teachers devotional book that I have been reading and praying about each morning for the past several months. I LOVE starting my morning out on a positive note! It is worth getting up a few extra minutes.

I read Amy's post what a wonderful idea. I am going to pass the prayer calendar on to several of my friends. Thank you for sharing!!

I love that! I'm learning it doesn't take long to set something in our children's hearts - good or bad. My girls are better at most things than I am when it comes to routine, so prayer and quiet time are a given now.
