8 Prayers for Men and Boys
This photo was taken 8 years ago before we moved from Oklahoma to the desert. And now the boys are 18, 15, 13, and 11.
I am recognizing that my husband and my boys are "doing life" in a world that can sometimes be harsh & quick to judge. And I am sensing that I need to cover them in prayer often.
Here are 8 prayers for our men & boys:
INTEGRITY: Help them to be men who choose to do the right thing and to be men who have a tight grip on their character.
WISDOM: Help them to continue to grow in wisdom, discernment (insight) and discretion (foresight).
HUMILITY: Help them to recognize their need for You and to remember You are drawn to the humble.
REPUTATION: Protect their name. Build their reputation. Be a shield. Give them favor.
PURPOSE: Guide them along the best path for their lives and fulfill Your purposes.
COMPASSION: Help them to be noticers and to be extenders of Your grace and love.
RESPONSES: Help them to display self-control with their responses and to respond more and react less.
BRAVE: Help them to be bold and brave for You even when they feel uncommon.
Hugs to all of you praying wives, praying moms, and praying grandmas out there. Steph Whitley #calledtobeakeeper
