Nicole, Chrissy and I are going to take this week off from posting so that we can enjoy some vacation time with our families. We hope that you will all join us on Monday, July 25th as we continue our study with Chapter 12 of The Power of a Praying Parent, Enjoying a Life of Health and Healing. Have a blessed week!
In the meantime, we hope that you will be encouraged by these Bible verses from each of the chapters that we've covered so far:
1. Becoming A Praying Parent:
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. -John 15:16
2. Releasing My Child Into God's Hands:
If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! -Matthew 7:11
3. Securing Protection From Harm:
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
4. Feeling Loved And Accepted:
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God,
and God in them.
-1 John 4:16
5. Establishing An Eternal Future:
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
6. Honoring Parents And Resisting Rebellion:
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise: that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth. - Ephesians 6:1-3
7. Maintaining Good Family Relationships:
Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. -1 Corinthians 1:10
8. Attracting Godly Friends and Role Models:
Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
-Psalm 1: 1-2
9. Developing A Hunger for the Things of God:
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
10. Being the Person God Created:
We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. - Romans 8:28-30
11. Following Truth, Rejecting Lies:
Do not let kindness and truth leave you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
So you will find favor and good repute
In the sight of God and man.
-Proverbs 3: 3-4
