May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer. (Prayer based on Psalm 19:14)
When I pray this, I am always instantly convicted and filled with a need to please my Lord. When I pray this for others, I am heavily burdened with a desire for them to know Him more and more, in such ever-increasing measure that their heart's meditation is refocused on Him and Him alone.
When you're in the middle of a difficult homeschool day, this is the perfect prayer. If you're late getting dinner started, this is the perfect prayer. On those days when your entire family is down and out with the flu, this is the perfect prayer to pray. It will center your heart and mind on glorifying the Lord with your words and in your heart, and it opens the door for the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you moment by moment.
Why not join me in making Psalm 19:14 a verse that you pray back to Him on a regular basis? I promise you won't remain the same if you pray this way! He is true to His Word, it always accomplishes what He wills, and it never returns to Him void.
My prayer for you today is that the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart would be acceptable in the sight of your strength and your Redeemer, the Lord who loves you so.
Lord bless you today as you homeschool for His glory!
Day 302 done :)
