How to Pray for Your Adult Children

As a mother of 9 children I do not take praying lightly.

I know how important it is to keep praying for your children--no matter how old they are. Prayer is so important when they are young and even when they are well into their adult years.

I don't pray perfectly and sometimes I don't remember to always pray the things I wanted to pray. So I though I would write a post where I can keep the main points of prayer in one place and hopefully they will bless you as well so you can pray for your adult children, if you have them.

1. Pray for them to have a heart for God, His Word, and His ways.

2. That they would grow in wisdom and discernment.

3. That they would understand God's purpose for their lives.

4. That God would bless their work and have financial stability.

5. That they would resist evil and destructive behavior.

6. That they would avoid sexual pollution and temptation.

7. That they would have good health.

8. That they would have God's healing.

9. That they would have a successful marriage.

10. That they would raise godly children.

11. That God would protect them.

Here is a lovely poem about a mother who prayed:

Some have had kings in their lineage,
Some to whom honor was paid.
Not blest of my ancestors but,
I have a mother who prays.

I have a mother who prays for me
And pleads with the Lord every day for me.
Oh what a difference it makes for me 
I have a mother who prays.

Some have worldly success
And trust in riches they've made 
This is my surest asset,
I have a mother who prays.

My mother's prayers cannot save me,
Only mine can avail;
But mother introduced me to Someone  
Someone who never could fail.

Oh yes, I have a mother who prays for me
And pleads with the Lord every day for me.
Oh what a difference it makes for me 
I have a mother who prays.

Homeschooling Through The Winter Months

Do the long days of winter seem longer than you like?  I personally look forward to the winters months because we are able to get more accomplished that we usually can't because the warm sunshine is beckoning us outdoors. Winter is a time for us to 'buckle down' from whirl of events from the holidays and to settle into a nice steady routine. I know that many moms can get cabin fever, whether you have big or little ones, so here are a few suggestions.

Slow Down and Encourage Your Children

"Parents do not realize how far a word of praise will go with children. Praise is sunshine to a child, and there is no child who does not need it. Praise spurs a child on to earnest effort.

5 Steps for Being More Productive in Your Day

Are you struggling to get things done?

Yes, I know, it is January and it is all gloomy outside and you are feeling like you have cabin fever and you need to get to all those things you just haven't gotten to because of the holidays.

But you know you need to get to them, some way some how. And you just keep reminding yourself how amazing you feel once you actually get them done! January is actually a great time to get things done since we tend to be a bit more homebound because of the weather. It is a great time to purge, refresh, and start new getting to those things you said you would get done last year!

Recently I had a project hanging over my head I had been meaning to get to all week. I was really dreading it and kind of making excuses to myself of why I couldn't get to it. But one day I just woke up and did it. And I couldn't believe how quickly I got it done and just how great everything looked afterwards! Not only that but I got it done in just under 10 minutes. I couldn't believe how fast it all went and why I didn't get to it sooner.

A Peek Inside My Life

It is January and I am loving all the NEW that comes with the New Year!

(Here I am playing with a Christmas filter!)

We haven't done one of these posts in a while and am glad that we could share a bit with you today. We like it when we get a chance to share a personal post so that you get a chance to see a glimpse of me as a real person and feel connected.

My Top 3 Favorite Books from 2019

I am setting some reading goals this year and while I was reflecting on the goals that I reached last year I wanted to share some of my favorite picks that I think will inspire you and that will also teach a bit of history as well!

Since I am a mom of 9 it is not everyday that I can carve out a ton of time reading so I make sure whatever I am reading will be an encouragement and inspiration and not waste my time on things that aren't.

Making New Year Goals for 2020

It is so exciting to see that the New Year is here! As we take down our Christmas trees and prepare for the new I am looking forward to all the things that God has planned for us. 

Every new year I seek to see how I can grow closer to God and I always try to ask myself the question:

If this were my last year to live----how would I live it?

Where would I spend most of my time? Would I be bolder sharing the gospel? Would I hug my children closer or share my most personal thoughts with my spouse?

FREE Bible Reading Plans for 2020

Are you looking to read through the Bible this year?

Every year in January my husband likes to print out a Bible reading plan for the family. This year he printed out two different options for the children that he thought they might like. It was funny because the two older boys had printed out on of the same exact plans just a few months ago!

30 Days of Praying for the New Year

When I became a young Christian I had participated in many different areas of ministry trying to see what area I liked best. I remember doing some door greeting, children's ministry, and many other areas but the area that I always fondly look back to is the time when I was part of a special prayer team at our local church.

Devotional Books for Your Family for 2020

Are you planning on doing a devotional in 2020?

Or maybe would like for your child or teen to go through one?

Devotionals are popular right now because they start on the first of the year and you can go by date throughout the year reading an inspiring message usually that goes hand-in-hand with Scripture (all though it should not replace your regular reading if at all possible).
