Good morning friends, its Treasure Tuesday’s! Hope your having an amazing day. Thanks for stopping by today. Every Tuesday we talk about tips & ideas that we can insteel in our children to love them the way God loves us.

I truly love finding new ways every week through some amazing women’s blogs that humble me to love my children more and help to bring them up in a Godly manner.

This weeks teaching comes from Angie Smith over at Bring the Rain Blog . She has a unique way to help her pray for her children 7 times a day for a week and I am going to start using her information to pray for my kids. I just love how she put the words together for each prayer. Click here to find out how she came to this post.

My day will start with a small pray just to thank God for waking up. I then ask Him what I can do for Him today to serve Him. I will admit that I am running around in the morning with the kids and I forget to pray every second for them and with them. So this week I am going to challenge myself to pray for them all day long everyday.

We do pray every single morning in the car on our way to school. I love to pray out loud so the kids understand that the can talk to the Lord anytime about anything they want. It also helps their day start out on a good note with God.

Come join me for 7 days praying for our children 7 times a day for a week and see how the Lord will move mountains in your children’s lives. Please keep me posted on what the Lord did this week in your children’s lives here or by email. I am so excited to hear how the Lord worked this week.

Here are the verses that Angie uses. I will be praying this week for the Lord to reveal to me anything that I might add to these prayers or other verses that He might reveal to me. I got a ruled index card book and wrote down every prayer so that all I have to do is go through each prayer and start praying. I hope to memorize these prayers but will have them wrote down to pass on to my kids oneday.

1. When they wake up: “Let the morning bring (child’s name) word of your unfailing love, for she has put her trust in You. Show (her/him) the way (she/he) should go, for to you (he/she) lifts up her soul.” (Adapted from Psalm 143:8)

2. When they are getting dressed: “Therefore, as God’s chosen child, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Lord, help (him/her) bear with others and forgive whatever grievances (he/she) has against others. Help (him/her) forgive as the Lord forgave (him/her). And over all these virtues, help (him/her) put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” (Adapted from Colossians 3:12-14)

3. While they are eating: “Teach (child’s name) the secret of being content in any and every situation whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Teach (him/her) that (he/she) can do everything through him who gives (him/her) strength.” (Adapted from Philippians 4:12-13)

4. When they go out of the house: “(Name of child), do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-His good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Adapted from Romans 12:2)

5. While they are taking a bath: “Lord, give (name of child) clean hands and a pure heart, and let (him/her) not lift (his/her) soul to an idol or swear by what is false. Let (him/her) receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God (his/her) Savior. Let (him/her) be part of the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O God of Jacob. (Adapted from Psalm 24:4-6)

6. When they are going to bed: “The Lord Your God is with you; he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, be will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17)

7. While they are sleeping: “I pray that (name of child) will do everything without complaining or arguing, so that he/she may become blameless and pure, a child of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which he/she shines like a star in the universe as he/she holds out the word of life-in order that he/she may boast on the day of Christ that he/she did not run or labor for nothing.” (Adapted from Philippians 2:14-16)

May your week be filled with many blessings and that your eyes be open to what the Lord will show you about loving our children the way the God loves u.

Serving with Joy,
