Seven things went wrong last week, all of them hard and out of her control. She prayed and asked others to pray.
This week, her problems are in the process of being solved. When I asked her what to pray, she thought and then answered, “I’m so grateful for what the Lord is doing, all I can think to say is thank you.”
It’s fun to help a person like her.
My granddaughter Emma told me, “When someone is sad I ask God to put his hand on them.”
That’s powerful teaching. God’s hand is mighty (Psalm 89:13).
Thank you, Amy, for teaching your daughters to pray.
I live in the spirit of prayer; I pray as I walk, when I lie down, and when I rise, and the answers are always coming. — George Muller
Here’s how Jacob prayed:
I am unworthy. Please deliver me.
I am afraid. But you said, “I will surely do you good.”*
Pray like Jacob did, humbly and honestly.
*from Genesis 32:9-12
I was reading to my granddaughters. We came to this page*:I asked, “Do you pray when you’re in bed at night?”
Greta answered, “Yes, when I am afraid I pray, ‘Jesus, thank you that you are with me. Jesus, thank you that you are in me.'”
Greta is not yet 4 years old.
*Joni Walker, Jesus Hears Me, p.1.
She* wakes and welcomes the day with singing. When she tires of singing, she calls out, “Daddy!” who takes her from her crib so they can make breakfast together.
Their father/daughter relationship exemplifies how to begin each day with Father God:
*She is our 2 year old granddaughter, Talia.
The disciples said, “Increase our faith!”
Jesus answered, “If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed . . . (Luke 17 : 5-6)”
A mustard seed as about as big as a period .
Believe the Bible is true and pray accordingly .
