As members of the Sandwich Generation, caring for elderly parents and helping with our grandchildren, praying for our families is always a high priority. Interruptions can come frequently which is another reason I love to have a list of simple Scripture prayers. They make it easy for me to be praying Scripture according to God's will for everyone in my family, from my senior parents on down to my youngest grandchild, and for myself as well. They are also great for prayer and Bible memory verse activities FOR grandparents and their grandchildren!
All of you, live in harmony with one another;
be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.
Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing,
because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing…
seek peace and pursue it…
in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord.
1 Peter 3:8,9,11,15 (NIV)
Aren't those wonderful and encouraging Bible verses to use as simple Scripture prayers? They're hanging in my bathroom and in my car right now!
