Ephesians 3:17 Prayer


Today I have already met with a prayer partner and had an awesome time praying and feeling the victory!  Then as I sat down to do my devo time with God he had me praying more.   So this scripture is from one of Pauls prayers.  The scripture just popped out at me.  One it made me pray for all the kids from kids camp last week, two it had me praying again for my church, and 3 it had me praying for myself and my family. 

I will be sharing this devo with my church family tonight.   I use the S.O.A.P method, s- scripture, o- observation, a-application, p-prayer.

Here is my brief SOAP on this scripture!

S- Ephesians 3:17- Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust him your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong.  

O- Paul is speaking here and praying for spiritual growth. 

A- Not only am I praying for myself but my heart is praying for the kids at camp- that what they learned last week and what they experienced would give them a drive and hunger and thirst for more of Christ.  That they would be still and know their God more each day.  God that you would help drown the distractions of the world and stay connected to each of them and they connected with you. I am praying that each moment at camp is one more root- deep down in God's love- that our kids would be strong, and bold, and obedient to what the Father asks of them.  
Not only that for the kids at camp but for our Riverside church family.   I want us to know when Christ is the root in our hearts- we experience his love and He keeps us strong!  No trial will get us down because we walk in Victory with HIM! 

P- Jesus, thank you for this scripture which guided more prayers!  Thank you for this example of prayer.  Help me continue to pray more and more for our kids, our church, my family, and anyone else you place on my heart.   Lord let us rely on your strength and your love.  GROW our roots deep, deep, deep in your love!  In your name Jesus!   AMEN

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
