Pray Like Jesus Did

With Resurrection Sunday just a few days away, I am reminded to take time to pray for my daughter, son, daughter-in-law and grandsons. When Jesus was on the earth, He prayed for His disciples and for us; it was one of the most important things He did before He went to the cross. (You will find His prayer in John 17.)

My grandson told me he wants to pray like I do (I always pray my grandsons will grow to love God more and more, so he prayed and asked God to help him love Him more and more!), reminds me how important it is for me to pray for the ones I love. So, I want to pray like Jesus did! I want to pray about the things Jesus prayed about . . .

"Dear God, please help me finish the work You have sent me to do - please remind me my work for You is not yet finished, because my children are grown; You still have significant things for me to do. Please help me glorify You with the life You gave me and as I go through this day, please protect me from the evil one and help me be a person who experiences and contributes to the unity of believers. I pray also for my grown children and grandchildren. Please help them discover the purpose and work You have for them to do and let them do this work in a way which brings glory to You. Please protect them from the evil one, so they are not deceived or side-tracked, but will instead serve You with hearts which want to build unity with other believers. Please gift them with Your joy. Thank You for Your great love for us; I love You, too, Amen!"
