Since we have such a large crowd of men of faith watching us from the grandstands, let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back, and especially those sins that wrap themselves so tightly around our feet and trip us up; and let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1 Living Bible (TLB)
A Prayer for Burden-Free Parenting
Heavenly Father, I praise you for the unique race you’ve set before me and for the little (and not so little) eyes that are watching me run. Free me from any burden that threatens to trip me up and slow me down today – a bad attitude, faulty thinking, judgement, lack of self control, ego, fear…. whatever it may be. Pull me from its grip and help me to run a clean, unencumbered race. May each of my steps glorify You. And may others see in me Your love, Your grace and Your mercy. Thank you, Lord! Amen!
