Lamentations 3:21-23 - A Prayer & A Blessing

I originally posted this prayer last Spring, but with the new year nearly upon us, I wanted to share it again with you along with a challenge for us all. It is all too easy for us to become busy with the day-in-day-out living of our lives and forget things we wanted to do to hand down the faith. So, to help me remember this prayer and to engage my grandsons in making it part of how they talk with God, I am going to get some supplies and have the boys help me make this prayer into a design we will hang near our table, to remind us to make it our daily prayer. We will also learn the blessing and make small copies of it for them to keep in their room near their beds.

Hope, yes we are able to have hope, because God's love, mercy and faithfulness never end and I want us to remember this! Take time today to notice how God shows these three things to you and tell your grandchildren all about it! Help them learn to watch for how God shows His love, mercy and faithfulness to them as well - so they are able to live with hope.

Consider accepting my challenge and post this verse in your home as well as make it a part of what you pray daily for your children and grandchildren - 
"Dear Lord, please help my children and grandchildren experience hope when they see today how Your love and mercy never end. Thank You for Your great faithfulness - Amen!"
And use it as a blessing you pray over them and with them at meals and bedtime -
"Dear Faithful God, please give us eyes which see today/tomorrow how Your love and mercy never end. Thank You for Your great faithfulness and the hope this brings to our lives. Amen."
