Help us to lean upon You and draw our strength from You. Give us the endurance we need to stand firm, to continue on, to press in, and to press through …
“We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us…” Romans 5:3-5 NLT
Father, I ask You to keep the hearts of my children close to You; keep their thoughts fixed on You; keep their spirits strong in You. May Your grace draw them to Your heart, Your will, Your love—moment by moment, day after day.
Help us to lean upon You and draw our strength from You. Give us the endurance we need to stand firm, to continue on, to press in, and to press through everything and anything that seeks to hinder us, or sidetrack us, from following Your plan and doing Your will.
May we always have keen vision to watch out for the attacks from the devil—to resist his temptations; to reject his lies; to refuse his condemnation; to refuse his accusations.
I pray that when my children are carrying burdens they would learn to cast them upon You; when they are anxious they would depend upon Your promises; when they become discouraged their hope would be renewed. Assure them today, Father, how dearly You love them.
