Go Beyond At Home

28-Week Prayer Guide


Each of us as parents have undoubtedly prayed for our children.  Sometimes these prayers are a quick on the go prayer as we are driving to work and sometimes these prayers are literal times on our knees asking for our kids salvation or for them to make wise choices.  Undoubtedly all of our kids, like us, will make choices that are sinful and could turn their attention away from Jesus.  If and when our children do make a choice or choices that are not God-Honoring it is easy for us to have a knee-jerk reaction or to tell them what they should have done differently.  During these times it can be easy for us to turn all our attention to our kids acting right or behaving.  But what should the posture of our hearts when we see our kids making choices that we know are going to wound them?  I heard someone once say, “Control is an illusion”. During this week of prayer I want us examine our hearts and spend time handing control of our lives to Him, even our kids lives.

Week 11
Day 7

May 18

“Because this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found!’ So they began to celebrate.

—  Luke 15:24

REMINDER: In this story of the lost son returning home, what an incredible scene we see as the father is throwing the biggest celebration. He has the best robe for his son, a ring, and the best steak prepared from his best calf. Nothing is too much for the celebration of his son’s return. When a team wins a World Series or Super Bowl, we can watch the celebration take place and you may have even celebrated this in your home. The celebration that our Father throws for us and for sons and daughters returning is like this celebration. He is celebrating because He loves us that much. As parents, we will celebrate all kinds of things with our kids. But we need to make sure that none eclipses the joy we experience when our children follow Christ.


–  Thank Jesus for the way He values and celebrates our lives.  That each of us is important to Him.

–  Ask Jesus to remind you of the celebration of how His life defeated death.
