This started out as a guest post for my friend Teri Lynne Underwood over at Prayers for Girls. Like so many times when I am preparing for my podcast, the message I think God is giving me for “someone else out there,” He is really giving me.
I actually stopped at one point and caught my breath as tears and questions welled up. First, “Who am I, Lord, that you would reveal wisdom to me?” and then “Oh my, Lord, I’ve been doing that haven’t I?”
Although this is written for an audience specifically committed to praying for the girls in their lives, I think the truths in it are for all parents, grandparents, and lovers of children everywhere.
I love Jesus.
I want my girls to love Jesus as much as I do.
So how can I convince them?
At this point the Holy Spirit is pressing the alarm. I can hear the loud buzzing and see the flashing strobe lights. But why? Where am I going wrong? Click here to read the rest of the story on Prayers for Girls.
I can’t wait to get my hands on this new book by Teri Lynne Underwood. If you have girls in your life who are special to you, I encourage you to pre-order this book today! I have been following Teri Lynne’s blog where my guest post is published. Her prayer calendars are an especially valuable resource and you can start using those while you wait for your book to arrive!
