P4S~ DAY 16 Faithfulness

Dearest Mommas,
Today, commit to praying the ten prayers in the faithfulness chapter. Ponder this quote from Paul E. Miller's A Praying Life: Connecting with God in a Distracting World:

“Mature Christians are keenly aware that they can't raise their kids. It's a no-brainer. Even if they are perfect parents, they still can't get inside their kids' hearts. That's why strong Christians pray more.”



  • READ | If you haven’t already, read through “The Fruit of the Spirit” (pg. 27-28) and work through any (or all) of the Study Questions that enhance your time in this challenge!
  • PRAY | Work through the 10 prayers on Faithfulness (pg. 35) using whatever method works best for you!
  • COMMENT | Let’s spend some time encouraging each other today – take some time to share a few things for which you or your family need prayer. Then, take a few minutes and read through the comments of others and their prayer requests while lifting them up to the Father. Leave a note of encouragement on their post letting them know you prayed and ask God to help us all be faithful to this great calling and responsibility He has given us!

Day Sixteen – Faithfulness
Encouragement from Brooke
I could talk about how many men struggle to be faithful to their wives. I could talk about how some men get tossed about for most of their lives, never really knowing who they are or what they believe. I could
talk about how some of the young men I see today don't know how to hold down a job, or provide for their families, or how to be a good and faithful husband and father. But really, what I want to talk about … what
I want to pray about today … is that our sons would be faithful to God.
Doesn't this one prayer bring with it the solution to everything else we could talk about? A man whose first love is Jesus, will be faithful in all of the areas above. He won't be perfect, but he will possess the ability to be empowered by the Holy Spirit to be faithful. It is something worth praying for.
