Prayer today

Praying, today...

that I will face

every whine
every act of disobedience
every disagreement
every bit of grumpiness
every interruption
every accident
every complaint

as a challenge:

What will I do with this moment, right now, to honor and glorify God?

There are a lot of those moments in my day, just waiting for me to respond to. May I respond rightly.

I will pray it for you, too.


  1. How true and perfect. It is about my attitude and how I choose to respond, just as I try to teach my children

  2. Oh, this is my prayer today too. May my attitude by one of love, mercy and grace.

    THanks for sharing this today!

  3. Ohhhhh, Stacy... amen and amen! It seems like the longer I am a mom, the more I need that prayer!

  4. I will pray with you and for you, too, Stacy!

    My first thought as I woke up this morning was asking the Father to help me be a blessing to my sweeties today. In that, of course, are the laughter, smiles and hugs, the taking time to play - but also the being consistent, checking heart attitudes again and again and again (mine included).

    Love you! Thanks for this post :)

  5. So, I'm a "lurker", but just had to comment. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!
    I thank you for this post, for the reminder, for the inspiration.
    I have prayed for you today on numerous occasions as I find myself challenged in these situations with my own children.
    What a wonderful God-fearing mother you are, with such beautiful children entrusted to your care!

  6. Me too! Thanks for this. You are such an encouragement to me.

  7. This needs to be my prayer every day.
