30 Days of Praying the Attributes of God

Why is it so important to know WHO God is?

The father of lies is active in this world. The enemy is prowling. He seeks to tell us lie after lie about who God is and who we are in Christ. If we are not diligently seeking the face of God through His Word, if we don’t know WHO He is, we will fall prey to these lies! We will begin to believe them. And what we believe is a big deal. What we believe impacts how we live our lives.

Let’s spend 30 days reading, studying, writing & praying through 30 verses that tell us WHO God is and what He is like. Grab a journal and start this plan at any time!

Attributes of God-2 PDF

Why write the Word? Why pray the Word?

Both of these disciplines have helped the Word of God to sink deep within my heart in ways that just reading has not done. We write things down that are important. Things we want to remember. Why not write down the very most important words we’ve ever been given? Read more about writing the Word here & find a whole page of FREE resources.

Sometimes we don’t have words to pray. So praying His Word gives words to our heart’s cry. Read 10 Benefits of Praying the Scriptures here. 

Praying and writing the Word of God doesn’t have to be hard. Read the passage, speak it aloud to God, ask Him to change you through the power of His Word.  Subscribe to His Mercy is New by email and receive a FREE quick-guide to praying God’s Word!

Follow along on Instagram and I will share my thoughts with the hashtag #PrayingTheScriptures or #WritetheWord and for this study, I will also use #AttributesofGod 

Praying Psalm 145

Lord God, You uphold me, You raise up those who are bowed low. My eyes look expectantly to You, You give food in due season. You open Your hand and satisfy me. You are righteous in all Your ways, gracious in all Your works. You are near to all who call upon You, to all who call on You in truth. You fulfill the desire of all who fear You, You hear my cry and save me. You preserve me. My mouth will speak Your praise!

Psalm 145:14-21

Did you catch that word there in verse 15?

Expectantly.

Is that how we look to God? We look expectantly to the weekend, to a big day, a fun trip. What would happen if we began looking to God EXPECTANTLY and WITH HOPE?? Excited.

Anticipating His goodness.

Let’s go about our day today EXPECTANTLY hoping in the Lord. Knowing and trusting that He is good and He has good things in store.

I want to be EXPECTANTLY looking to God and not my circumstances. I want to BEHOLD God and not all the negativity I see every direction I look. I want to SEE HIM and FIX MY EYES ON HIM.

40 Day Challenge: Praying the Scriptures for Your Children

We will never be perfect parents, but we can be PRAYING parents.

Parenting is, by far, the most difficult calling I’ve even been given. But one thing I am learning, time and time again, is that when any kind of thought or emotion from the enemy enters our minds: fear, confusion, anger, resentment, rebellion, ungodliness – we must combat with God’s Word and prayer. Only through Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit can we have PEACE in the most difficult of our parenting seasons. Only Jesus can replace that fear with faith. And we must turn to Him, continually, to receive His gifts of love, mercy, peace and joy.

I want to challenge you to spend the next 40 week days praying God’s very Word over your children. Through the power of the Holy Spirit through prayer, we can leave a legacy beyond compare for our children. Not only that, but through prayer, God also changes our hearts and continues making us into the parents He has called us and equipped us to be.

What to Expect

After you have signed up, each weekday morning between 7-8am, you can expect a short & sweet email from me. This email will contain these 4 things:

  • Scripture passage
  • Short prayer
  • Graphic of the verse that you can save or share
  • An “extra resource” with some of my favorite posts, articles and resources for praying for our children!

This series isn’t intended to be a dissertation on prayer. This series isn’t intended to be a teaching series. This series isn’t intended to be a thorough study of the Bible.

The main goal of this series is to get each of us PRAYING.

When/if you are tempted to feel like you don’t know how to pray, you can’t get prayer right or you just want to give up, I want to encourage you to JUST PRAY. The best way to learn to pray is to just do it. The more you talk and listen to God, the more your prayer life will grow.

You can start this anytime!

I am thrilled to offer this challenge to anyone who finds it weeks or months from now. I have it set up to begin sending you emails the very next day after you sign up! So, if you find this series on Pinterest months from the date of this blog post, go ahead and sign up, you will start receiving the challenge emails when you sign up!

It’s never the wrong time to begin praying daily for our children!

Why I created this challenge

So, before you think I am a super spiritual prayer warrior who spends hours on her knees daily for her children, just stop right there. Grin. I am a normal mom like you, I battle fear, I struggle with knowing how to parent on a minute-by-minute basis, I need all the help I can get.

So I created this challenge for me. But it would be awesome if you decide to join me for the journey.

**Note: this is different than my blog subscription. You do need to sign up specifically for this challenge if you wish to receive the emails! They will not go to everyone on my email list, only those who have signed up here!

10 Verses to Pray for your Tweens

I’m sure most of us can recall awkward and painful moments from our middle and high school years. I’ve heard many people say that middle school years were the worst years of their lives. Sometimes it’s just as hard to be the parent of a teen or tween!

As a mom of three children in the teen and tween category, prayer has become a greater weapon than ever before. We will never be perfect parents, but we can be praying parents.

Praying God’s Word has been a journey for me. It started in a dark season of depression when I had no words to pray. It turned into transformative prayer that has changed my relationship with God over the years. Praying the Scriptures is for all of us because it helps us to pray the Words and will of God. His Word gives us words when we have none. His Word strengthens us in our weakness. The Holy Spirit uses God’s Word to convict, encourage and inspire.

What better way to pray for our children than to pray the very Word of God?

I want to share with you 10 verses that can be powerful prayers for our teens and tweens!
