I don't know about you but teaching school work is not my forte. I have very little patience and I get annoyed very easily. You can all judge me but I am keeping it real. So with knowing my own limitations and the fact that my kids will in fact be with me for the next several months, I decided I needed a plan that would combat my lack of skill and Jesus is always my first resort.
So we committed to praying this prayer EVERY SINGLE DAY, multiple times a day. Every time we sit down to do school work I will pray this over the three of us. I thought I would share it with y'all in case any of you could use a little encouragement yourself.
Here it is...
This is literally what I have been and will prayer every single day before starting school time. So I and my children will hear it at least twice a day.
Let us work our very hardest to glorify you.
Give us patience with ourselves and each other.
Help us speak kindly.
Thank you for the gift of this time together.
May we glorify you with our school time, in our attitude and our work.
We pray all this in Jesus’ Name.
I hope this encourages even one of you. We can do this and we will be better, stronger, and more refined on the other side of all this. As people and as families we will be better. Claiming that over my own life and yours.
