Welcome back to 31 Days of Servant Leadership! Prayer is so important to raising servant leaders. Jesus modeled for us so many times when we prayed to His Father.
There are numerous accounts of the power of prayer in the Bible.
Read it. Pray it. Sing it. Teach it your children.
O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner. Luke 18:13b
“Not every day is picture-perfect.”
Rebecca encourages homeschool moms with simple prayer journaling over curriculum choices to anger and depression. The power of prayer over everyday life as a homeschool mom is amazing. This book will bless you. And you can do the journals with your kids. Let them see mama pray! Pray with your kids.
I’m always careful with recommending books and resources on Bible and prayer. Too many authors are wolves in sheep’s clothing and sound great on the surface but teach insidious doctrine that borders on or even leaps into New Age or Eastern religious ideas. I won’t recommend many modern books because they weave in too many compromises. If you look at the best seller list for religion for the past decade or so, it is disheartening how many popular books have little or nothing to do with the real God of the Bible or the teachings of Jesus.
