Today's prayers are for avoiding foolishness. This seems an uphill battle to me. My kids are constantly expressing themselves foolishly. The choices they make and the words they choose are mostly self-centered. Brooke says "There is no consideration in life more profound than, 'What will please me?'Children don't say those words, but such foolish thoughts are the underlying justifications for hundred of impulses every day. It is expressed in all the acts of disobedience, selfishness, willful temper, and compulsive self-love." She explains how important it is to train our children to recognize the difference between the wise man and the foolish man. So many examples of each are given in God's word. By training our little boys now we have hope that they will stand on their own one day and make the right choice to be wise.
Let's pray today with their future in mind, not just for today. Let's pray that they will not only make wise decisions with their daily life now, but be so solid in this that they will not move from God's wisdom.
