A Family Fight: Persistence in Prayer
You've had a very long day. You're going home to shuttle your children to and
from sports/band/gymnastics/tutoring and you are EXHAUSTED. THEY are exhausted after spending all day at school then their extracurricular activities...the way that you work together with - or against - one another at this
time of day will tell how the entire evening will go. It's not your fault, it's not
their fault, the blame lies on the shoulders of "life" which gets in the way of our
It's 5:30am and you are trying to get your kids out of bed to start their day for
school. You just started the coffee brewing, so haven't yet fully woken up yourself, and may even be a bit grumpy. The kids are no help - they are still tired
from all the homework that they had to do last night after their other activities. You are being yelled at simply for the phrase "Good Morning". You're
thinking, 'If this is how I have to start my day, I may as well go back to bed!'.
Have you ever experienced either of the two above circumstances? What did
you do? Did you think about saying a quick prayer?
To be continued next week...
