Praying Differently

This quote really stuck with me. It made me totally change the way I pray. I always thanked God in a general way when I prayed but now I get more specific. After all, I am a blessed girl and have sooo soooo much to be grateful for! He deserves all the praise I can give!!

On Mondays, I am doing a women's bible study through IE MOMS(intentionally engaging) at our church.
The book I chose to study is called The Power of a Positive Mom.

I have had the book for a while now and had read parts of it. So when I saw that study was offered, I knew I needed to be there. I have a fabulous group leader and a wonderful group of moms to meet with every week. What better way to start my week than learning more about being a positive Mama for my little men!  I will probably post little parts from this book quite often throughout the study. My pages are glowing with yellow highlighter.=)
Anyway, at the end of each chapter, there is a prayer. This one seemed just perfect for my daily life so I thought I would share...
Wonderful Father, thank you for allowing me to participate in the glorious occupation of motherhood. Thank you being the perfect parent--and the perfect role model! Please help me to remember that my job is significant and eternally important. Help me to glorify you as I work, teach, play, change diapers, and make sandwiches each day. Bless my family with peace and safety as we grow to honor you. In Jesus's name I pray, Amen.

That is my all time favorite quote and it really stuck with me too the first time I read it...I think on pinterest. It pretty much sums up how we should approach our everyday lives. That book looks really great. Please do share what you learn from it.
