blessings from myr~
praying Scripture over your children~

These are the five handwritten pages of Scripture Blessing that my mother in law, Charlotte, gave to Glen and I numerous years ago. I am writing them here, so that I have another copy, and to share some Scripture that we mothers can pray over our children as blessing. This is a tremendous gift we can give our children, and all we have to do is open the Word, and spend a few minutes praying for them. There are many more than these to be found in the Word. It is very easy, and in my opinion, one of the best things we, as mothers, can do. Who knows what battles are won and what protection and blessing has come from the quiet prayers of mothers?

I Chronicles 22:11-13,19~ "Now, my son (& daughter, & children) the Lord be with thee; and prosper thee, and build the house of the Lord, thy God, as He hath said of thee- Only the Lord give thee wisdom and understanding and give thee charge concerning God's people, that thou mayest keep the law of the Lord thy God, then shalt thou prosper... Be strong and of good courage, dread not, nor be dismayed... Now set your heart and your soul to seek the Lord your God."

"How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about arithmetic, and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness." ~GK Chesterton
