Praying for the Ones We Love!

This week I'm praying through Psalm 55:16-23 for my children/grandchildren. This is a truly powerful passage; take a look . . . 
As for me, I call to God, and the Lord saves me.
Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress,
and he hears my voice.
He rescues me unharmed
 from the battle waged against me,
even though many oppose me.

God, who is enthroned from of old, 
who does not change—
he will hear them and humble them, because they have no fear of God.
                                        My companion attacks his friends; he violates his covenant. His talk is smooth as butter, yet war is in his heart; his words are more soothing than oil, yet they are drawn swords.                                       Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. But you, God, will bring down the wicked into the pit of decay;  the bloodthirsty and deceitful will not live out half their days.  But as for me, I trust in you.
 Each day I pray a specific portion of this passage for my grandchildren/children . . . today my focus is on praying when they experience troubles - and we all do at one time or another throughout our lives - they will be thankful as they see how God rescues them!

  1. My husband and I read a Bible passage to our children (6y and 7y) most nights. This will be our passage to read as a family tonight. Thank you so much for sharing.
