31 Days of Prayer For Our Children - Day 29

Your sovereignty

I know that You can do everything, that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted. 
(You asked,) Who is this, hiding counsel, without having knowledge?
Yes, I spoke without understanding,of wonders far beyond me, which I did not know.
Please listen while I speak.  
(You said) I will ask questions, and you give Me answers.
I had heard about You with my ears, but now my eye sees You; therefore I detest myself
and repent in dust and ashes.  (Job 42:1-6)

Oh Father, we all must be humbled as Your servant Job was.  We must all come to the point where we know to the depth of our souls that You are sovereign.  You allow things to happen we do not understand.  You ask us to do  or not do things that don't make sense to us.  But we must ultimately bow the knee to You.

Thank You for showing me this passage today:

You bring frail mortals to the point of being crushed, then say, "People repent". (Psalm 90:3)

As I pray for myself, I pray for my children to recognize that You are Adonai. You made the world and You made us.  We are mortals, while You are eternal.  We are inherently foolish, while You are all wise.  The world will tell us we can do anything we want to do and sets us up as little gods.  That is the same thing the evil one told Eve.

I pray for my children to understand Your sovereignty and to always be humble before You.  I pray for them to recognize that everything they have comes by Your hand.  It's easy to think that our jobs (money) comes by our efforts.  But may they recognize that they would not have a job apart from Your hand.

My prayer today and always is for my children to be able to say, "You give and take away.  Blessed be the Name of the L-rd."  May they bless You in the good times and bless You in the bad times, for You are Adonai, our sovereign L-rd.

I pray these prayers in the blessed Name of Yeshua, Ha-Mashich.
