My new daily prayer

I am getting ready to begin the Clean Heart, Clean Home Challenge. Included with that plan was the following prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father-
  As I begin a new day, I pray that You will give me the strength, wisdom, patience, and understanding I will need to be the mother my children need, and the mother You want me to be. 
I pray my children will learn from me, by example, and that I would be a good example for them to learn from.
 I pray that You will protect these precious lives from harm and evil, and that never for one moment today, will I forget the fact that these children are Yours, and a gift to me that you have entrusted me to guide back to You.
  Please help me to be slow to anger, and quick to forgive, just as you have forgiven me too many times to count.
  Let my love pour out to these lives, that they may know Your Fatherly love from my motherly love.
  Help me to life them up as individuals and bring out their strengths and gifts, to fulfill Your purposes for them.
  I pray that they will feel Your presence and do what's right and holy. I pray they will do Your will throughout their life, and that their relationship with You will be strong and steadfast.
  But most of all, I pray when their time on earth is done, they will meet You face to face and rejoice with You in Heaven.
  Please let me be a reflection of You and Your love to these precious lives today.
In Jesus' name, Amen. -Amy Verlennich

 I hope this prayer will bless you as it has me.


  1. Love clean heart, clean home challenge! Did it a few years back & it is awesome...still keep it up! Also, have you heard of It is amazing and has saved my hide & grocery bill! It gives you 7 meal plans that you can use for lunch or dinner for a family of 4-6. It is $15 for 3 months. We use the Publix Family Meal Plan, but you can tailor it with low-fat, gluten-free, or choose the grocery store you shop at more! It prints out a grocery list of all that you need for those 7 meals based on what is on sale & gives you the total for how much you spend! I have planned all my breakfasts and lunches too (based on quickness and ease). That menu is printed on my fridge & is what we go to each day. It makes shopping/couponing so much easier b/c I know exactly what I'm looking for! We also make 1 big Sam's run a month to save, too. Anyway, thought I would pass along the tips I've learned, but I am DEFINITELY STILL learning! Can't wait to see what you come up with girl! You are awesome and inspiring :-)
