A prayer...

Sometimes at the end of the day I am not sure what to pray. When no words come I often just sit quietly and then read scripture but other times I use the scripture to form my prayers. Here is a prayer I turn to often when I feel at a loss of how to pray for the kids:

(Taken from Proverbs 4: 20-27)

I pray that Nikki and Taylor will listen closely to the words of our God. That they will treasure His word in such a way that they will not let it out of their sight and will keep His words in their hearts for they (His words) are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body. I pray that above all else, they will guard their hearts- the wellspring of life. I pray that perversity and corrupt talk will be far from their lips. That their eyes will look straight ahead with their gazes fixed directly before them. I pray that God will make level paths for their feet and that He will grant them wisdom to take only ways that are firm. And I pray that both of them will walk in steady faith; not swerving to the right or the left; that God will graciously keep their feet from evil.
