Another day has gone by and it is bed time. I am tired, it’s been hot and we’ve been busy, and in town shopping,
I’m sitting here thinking that I need to go to bed. My men folk are out at a fire brigade training session and will not be home for a while yet.
I could go to bed and read and pray or just sleep, but I know that I should be praying for my family.
I know of a family where the grandmother prays for her children and her grandchildren every day. She prays for their relationship with God and for their future, she is definitely a God fearing woman who knows the power of prayer and all her children walk with the Lord.
I want to be a praying mother and now grandmother. Each night I pray for the safety of our children and grandchildren. I pray for our unmarried children’s future spouses and their safety.
But I want to be able to pray more and to be able to stay awake at night instead of falling asleep. I sometimes joke that if I can’t sleep I pray, but that’s not really the way I want it to be. I want to be a God fearing prayerful women who knows and understands the power of prayer. I want my sons and daughters to be prayerful people who put their trust in God and not in man.
I want to pray for them to turn their backs on the ways of the world and keep their eyes on Jesus. I want us to be in the world and not of the world.
So I think I will go to bed and pray.
