Celebration of Discipline:: Prayer Results

It's the last Tuesday of the month of March...

Time for the results of my Celebration of Discipline Prayer Action Plan...

Boy, that was a mouthful...

I feel like I did a lot better on the "Flash Prayers..." 

When I did get out of the house...usually at the grocery store...I said a quick prayer for the people I passed. 

Mostly, I found myself saying "Flash Prayers" for people as I thought of them throughout the day. Either a post on Facebook or Twitter...thinking of a friend who is starting a new job...someone who I knew wasn't feeling well...anyone who came to mind, I would say a quick prayer for them...even sometimes not knowing what exactly to pray. I still prayed.

I didn't intentionally bless my children as I held them every single day like I wanted to. (But I am so thankful that I do get to hold all 3 of my babies at some point every day!!!) This is something I definitely want to get better at. 

I want to speak a blessing over them...outloud...every day.

Bella goes to school 2 days a week...and for most of the month, I was able to hug her and bless her as she started her day...whether at home before Lee took her, or before I left her in the classroom with her teacher. 

I do enjoy holding my babies so much...and often at night when tucking them in bed, I find myself praying a blessing over them...over their futures...over their future mates...

But I would love to get into a habit of just randomly blessing them when I have the chance...praying for them as I watch them play...any time of the day...and just holding them and speaking life over them...because I know the days of snuggling will never be the same as they are now!

So, I do want to keep working on this area of prayer in my life. My babies are so precious to me...I pray for them daily, but I don't feel like it is enough...I want them to experience an abundantly blessed life!!!!

Next week I will be back to share my action plan for the next chapter on fasting. And although I am still breastfeeding a baby and may not be able to do a food fast, there are many other things in my life that I can fast!!! I'll let you know next Tuesday about that!!
