“Lord, please instill in my children a soul that follows hard after You; a heart that clings passionately to You” (Psalms 63:8).
I almost feel like we should have prayed this first and then continued to pray it along with each other day’s topic. To have a heart that clings passionately to Father, in my opinion, is the root of all Godly behavior. Is there anything more important than having passion for Father? Everything else in our lives will fall into place when we have passion for Him first. We will genuinely seek His will and search His Word, we will have a desire to act lovingly towards all, and have a heart for His kingdom. If we are passionate about our creator everything else follows naturally.
I want to continue to pray each of these attributes over my kids for the rest of their lives and eventually my grand children’s lives, but praying for a passion for Father will be something I try to pray every day from this day forward. I can’t think of anything that would make me happier than seeing their passion for Father affect every aspect of their life in ways that only Father can.
May our children’s passion for Him not be wavering, but may it be consistent and may they cling to Him and all His truth, love, grace, and mercy.
