Prayer for our Kids Day 21 – Contentment

“Father, teach my children the secret of being content in any and every situation, ‘through Him who gives them strength’” (Philippians 4:12-13).

This verse from Philippians adds so much power to this prayer because being content is hard to do, but being thankful and appreciate for what Father has blessed us with is possible through His strength.

I want my kids to always desire to push themselves to be better, but I want them to be thankful for all that they have. We are a tremendously blessed nation and I want them to see that.

* In the end you die anyway, so what is the point? Continue reading
