personal prayers

These are stories from my life. I find them helpful as God has used these experiences to teach me.

Praying With Children

Last night as I was praying with my older daughter and putting her to bed, she was going through her list of people she wanted me to pray for. She decided to add a few new people to the list, and I started thinking how this is like our relationship with Jesus. Here was my daughter just telling me who she wanted to pray for, and I was the one who flushed this out in prayer. Now this is not a perfect analogy, but Jesus lives always to intercede for us.

The Sweetness of Children and Prayer

The point of me telling you this story is not to allow your children to make decisions for you. Even though our oldest wants to go, we can always remind her of what Jesus showed her.
