While I may joke about head shots please know I am incredibly humbled that any one takes the time to read this blog. It is so much fun for me to do and I am truly moved when someone says it made them laugh or encouraged them. I'm truly blessed when someone says they enjoy PYKM as it is a passion God has given me and I long for us to be a generation of Moms who are known for their commitment to praying for their kids, husbands and homes. -Jen

Praying for Your Kids Monday--Faithfulness

William Barclay in his "Book of Virtues" describes faithfulness as "a great word. It describes the person on whose faithful service we may rely, on whose loyalty we may depend, whose word we can unreservedly accept. It describes the person in whom there is the unswerving and inflexible fidelity of Jesus Christ, and the utter dependability of God."

Wow, wouldn't we all want to be described that way? Wouldn't we love to hear others describe our children like that? Faithfulness isn't a virtue that comes easily and in fact David says, "Help, Lord, for the godly man ceases! For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.
They speak idly everyone with his neighbor; With flattering lips and a double heart they speak."
(Psalm 12: 1-2).

In a society where the faithful disappear how ever more important it is for us to pray for God to raise up this virtue in our children so that they will be known as faithful men and women.

God You are so faithful to me and to my family; Your Word abounds with descriptions of Your faithfulness. Thank You for Your son Jesus who was faithful even unto death. I pray for _________ to see the example of Jesus and His faithfulness to You and Your work and be inspired to become a woman of faithfulness. Lord, please pour Your Spirit out on ________ so that people will say of her that she is reliable and loyal. I pray she will have unswerving and inflexible devotion to You. Amen.
