Last week, I share a post that included a Prayer Guide for Family… more specifically for children and for your husband. I did not put the lists together, but have been blessed tremendously by them. I will not claim to have the knowledge that the woman who did assemble those lists, but here is my attempt at putting together a Prayer guide for your self. Again, it is 31 things… one for every day of the month. This list is geared towards women… wives and mothers… because I assume that is mostly who reads this blog. Feel free to adapt it to your stage in life. And please feel free to share this post with a link back to the original. Thanks!

1. To have a healthy fear of the Lord which is the beginning of knowledge and to graciously receive wisdom and instruction

2. have a gentle and quiet spirit

3. to not be wise in my own eyes, but seek the Lord for wisdom and direction. He has a will… ask Him what it is

4. that I would respect my husband and let him lead

5. that I would guard my heart in what I watch, listen to, read, etc.

6. that I would be a helpmate to my husband

7. that I would not be so concerned for my children’s happiness as their character and who they are in the Lord

8. that I would manage my household well

9. that I would be a good steward of my time and efforts concerning my home

10. that I would be a prudent wife

11. that I would model modesty for my children… both my daughters and my sons

12. that I would be hospitable… even when it may be an inconvenience

13. that I would be a gracious woman, wife, mother

14. that I would train up my children in the fear and wisdom of the Lord through intentional teaching as well as everyday moments

15. that I would be faithful to my husband in thought, word and deed

16. that I would be an encourager- thoughtful and tactful with my words

17. that I would be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry

18. that I would seek the Lord for my identity and not the opinion’s of others or the magazines I see in the store, etc.

19. that I would have a love for the Word of God

20. that I would not go to bed angry, but be willing to have tough conversations with my husband

21. that I would bring honor to my family and not shame

22. that  I would be protected from the schemes of the devil

23. that I would guard my tongue

24. that I would be willing to make the hard choices when I know that they are right

25. that I would discipline my children with love and respect

26. that I would be one who builds up my house and doesn’t tear it down

27. that I would have perseverance

28. that I would commit to the Lord whatever I do… even if it’s just changing diapers

29. that I would learn to be content in any circumstance

30. that I would not worry about tomorrow

31. that I would not be deceived by charm and beauty, but be a woman who fears the Lord

So… there you go… here’s my list. I hope you are able to use it.. Feel free to adapt it to where you are in life. I really can’t take credit for this list either… it’s all in the Bible.
