As I've mentioned before, I pray through the Prayer Calendar for Mothers from Inspired to Action. It has 30 items, and can be used for each of the days of the month, but as I don't have the same weekend and weekday routines, I just go one by one, disregarding the dates. That's why this week, I was praying #12 on the list, 'A Passion for God.' I've prayed through this list 3 full times and am on the fourth go-round, but this struck me deeper this time; the words stuck in my head and heart.
"Lord, please instill in my children a soul with a craving for You, a heart that clings passionately to You. Ps. 63:8"
A soul that craves You.
A heart that clings passionately to You.
Craving. Clinging passionately.
This is my prayer today, and everyday! When praying that my children will be generous, courageous, kind and responsible, it all stems from wanting them to have this passion for God. I pray that all those other good things are the results of true salvation, a love for the Lord, and the desire to live their faith.
Craving & clinging passionately to Jesus.
