Praying for Your Kids Monday
A Desire for Truth

Mama Della's last night is tonight so instead of putting a whole lot of effort into PYKM I am going to copy a prayer from a favorite book of mine and go play Pinochle! Suh-weet!

"If you love Me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever--the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him for He dwells with you and will be in you" (John 14: 15-17).

Lord, I pray that ________ will have a heart that loves Truth. May any lies in his heart come to light so they can be confessed to You as sin. I pray that he not be blinded or deceived, but always be able to clearly discern and follow Your Truth.

Help me to effectively discipline him when he tests that principle. Your Word says that "when He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all Truth". Please guide __________ in the way of Truth always. Amen.
