As with a blog post I shared a few weeks ago – Cultivating Daily Repentance: A Prayer – I found a prayer from my own prayer book that has now become a nightly prayer with the kids. We do have our own quick way of going around and each saying a “special prayer” for someone each evening, but they often fall very close to home – family, friends we saw that day or sometimes someone we know has a need for prayer. But I also want my children to remember that we are called to pray for everyone and to keep our prayer for all those in need – known to us or unknown.
So this prayer below that I adapted with more child accessible language and using the group prayer format we use in our family prayers was a beautiful and much needed addition to our prayers and movement towards incorporating more intercessory prayer. I have heard of many ways that other families incorporate prayer for others and plan to blog some ideas for that in the future. I would love to hear from you if you have ideas.
And also I recently noticed and added a subscription button to this blog in case you would enjoy getting notified of new posts. Mostly I would just love to hear from you how you are working on (successes and falls) shepherding your own little flock.
With love in Christ,
