Christian Homeschooling - Your Daily Blessings
I would like to invite you to visit this page first, and start your Christian homeschooling day off with a dose of Daily Blessings. If during the day you get sidetracked or need a spiritual lift, come back to this page and read your daily blessings again. You won't regret it!
It has been my experience that starting each and every day with prayer sets the tone for the entire day. Prayer before a very busy day will ease the stress. At the end of the day, you'll wonder how you got everything done. You got everything done with the Lord's help and prayer. What doesn't get done that day can be put on the next day. The Lord determines what absolutely has to be done that day. He is always right, and He is always on time.
I wanted to share with you three prayers I try to pray every morning at the start of my day. I did not write the prayers; they were sent to me by a friend years ago. I hope they'll be an encouragement to you.
Christian Homeschooling - Daily Prayer
I thank You for this day. I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning. I'm blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God. You have done so much for me, and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for I have sinned.
I ask now for Your forgiveness. Keep me safe from all danger and harm. Let me start this day with a new attitude and plent of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day and give my best in all that is put before me. Clear my mind that I can hear from You.
Broaden my mind that I can accept all things. Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. Let me continue to see sin through God's eyes and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive the forgiveness of God. And when this world closes in on me, let me remember to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits.
I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do Thy Will. Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong that I may help the weak. Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.
I pray for those that a lost and can't find their way. I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who refuse to share a word from You. I pray for those who don't know You intimately. I pray for those that will only read this anot not speak this aloud in their own lives.
I pray for those that don't believe. But I thank You that I believe that God changes people and God changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers, for each and every family member in their households. I rpary for peace, love and joy in their homes, and that they are out of debt and all their needs are met.
I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God. Every battle is in His hands for Him to fight. I pray that these words be received into the ears of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly.
This is my prayer. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.
For my children I pray the following:
By the power of the blood of Jesus Christ, bring every thought and imagination of my child's mind, every emotion of his heart, every deed of his hands, every step that he takes under your Lordship. Lead him to love You with all of his heart, mind, and soul, and his neighbor as himself.
Jesus, protect my children from the plans the devil has to destroy them; turn his schemes for Your glory. Bless my children with wisdom and insight so that they can see the battle clearly and won't be deceived. Fill them with an overwhelming desire for Your presence, love and peace. Forgive me my mistakes and cover my areas of poor leadership with Your blood. I pray that they will honor You all the days of their lives.
