Don't you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. 1 Corinthians 9:24-26a
Dear Lord, as this month of prayer for my daughters ends I know it is not really over. I will continue to come before You with requests on their behalf and desire for You to lead me as I pray according to Your will for their lives. I pray that Lydia and Emma would run for the prize, that they would not get sidetracked by the many distractions surrounding them. Help me to teach them to live with a view of eternity and guide them to be disciplined in their lives when I am not able to be there. I pray that they would not measure their days as sucessful as the world defines sucess but as You define it. I pray that they would run their whole lives for You and that they would follow hard after You. Refine me and help me to pour out my life for my husband and children so that in the end I may not be disqualified but that I would finish strong. Thank You Father, for this precious month of joining thousands of other women praying for the beautiful girls in our lives. We know that You hear our prayers and we eagerly await the work You are doing as a result of our petitions. I love You and pray that You would give Lydia, Emma and myself a desire to know You more. Amen.
