Today I wanted to share a Scripture prayer from Deeper In 4 Grandparents & Parents, Too!, so you are able to see what it is like . . . 

Read – Psalm 27:7-14

Hear my voice when I call, LORD; be merciful to me and answer me. My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek.
Psalm 27:7, 8
Pay attention to

  • What do I especially like about this passage?
  • What do I not like or do not understand?
  • How does this passage help me know God better?

Prayer -

Dear God, I want to thank You for hearing my voice when I call. Thank You for Your mercy and for answering me. My heart says of You, “Seek His face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek! Please do not hide Your face from me, or turn me away in anger; help me remember You have been my helper, teach me Your way, lead me in a straight path and do not turn me over to those who are against me. I will remain confident of this: I will see Your goodness in the land of the living! I will wait for You! Please help me be strong, take heart, and wait for You, my LORD!

Please remind my grandchildren/children today, wherever they are in this moment, they are able to trust You to hear their voice when they call upon You. Please help them see and experience Your mercy and how You answer their prayers. I pray they will have hearts which want to seek Your face and will be committed to doing so. As they grow up, please help them understand and be able to see how You have helped them. I pray they will remember You will not reject or forsake them. Please give them hearts which want You to teach them Your way, and follow when You lead them in a straight path. Please do not turn them over to those who are against them, but instead help them experience and remain confident of Your goodness so they will choose to wait for You! Please help them be strong, take heart, and wait for You. Thank You for Your great love for us; I love You, too! Amen!

Focus for the Week

Make this your prayer in the coming week, and draw your thoughts to the following focus . . .
  • Sunday – Dear God, I want to thank You for hearing my voice when I call. Please help my grandchildren/children remember today, wherever they are in this moment, they are able to trust You to hear their voice when they call upon You. How does it change the way I live if I understand God hears my voice when I call? What do I need to call out to God about today? Pray my grandchildren/children will remember God hears them when they pray and they will be people who call upon Him.
  • Monday – I thank You for Your mercy and for answering me! Please help my grandchildren /children see and experience Your mercy and how You answer their prayers. What will I do today to thank God for His mercy and for answering my prayers? How does this change the way I live? Pray my grandchildren/children will be able to see and experience God’s mercy in their lives and how He answers their prayers.
  • Tuesday – Your face, LORD, I will seek! Please help my grandchildren/children have hearts which want to seek Your face and will be committed to doing so. How did I seek God’s face today? How does intentionally choosing to seek God’s face change the way I live? Take time to make a list of at least five ways I will seek God’s face. Pray my grandchildren/children will be people who have hearts which want to seek God.
  • Wednesday – Please do not hide Your face from me, or turn me away in anger; help me remember You are my Helper. As they grow up, please help my grandchildren/children understand, and be able to see, how You have helped them, and remember You will not reject or forsake them. How does it change the way I live if I know God is my Helper? How do I need God to help me today? How does it change me to know I can ask God to not hide His face or turn away from me? Pray my grandchildren/children will be able to point to times when God has helped them and will know with confidence, He will not forsake them.
  • Thursday – Please teach me Your way, and lead me in a straight path! Please help my grandchildren/children have hearts which want You to teach them Your way, and follow when You lead them on a straight path. How did God teach me today? How did He lead me in a straight path? Am I following where God is leading me? Pray my grandchildren/children will want God to teach them and will choose to follow Him.
  • Friday – I will remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! Please help my grandchildren/children experience and remain confident of Your goodness and choose to wait for You! How have I been able to see the goodness of God? How does knowing I’ll see God’s goodness give me confidence? Pray my grandchildren/children will experience God’s goodness, this will give them confidence, and help them wait for Him.
  • Saturday – Please help me be strong, take heart, and wait for You, my LORD! Please help my grandchildren/children do this as well. How did God help me be strong, take heart, and wait for Him today? What did I do to praise God for helping me? How does it change the way I live to wait for God? Pray as they go through their lives, my grandchildren/children will be strong and find encouragement by waiting for God.
Each passage will include questions to help you think about what the verses are saying, a personalized Scripture prayer for your own walk with God and a prayer for the children you love; which is then divided into seven parts for you to focus and pray a specific part each day for a week.

This book will help you make praying Scripture a part of your daily life - and it is free! You are able to download your free copy at this link
