Warrior Prayers Day Four

Today's prayers are for integrity.  Brooke stresses that we can best train our sons in this area by the lives they see us lead.  This is one of those character traits that can best be taught by behaving in a Christ-like way in situations that most people would choose to act selfishly.  Some simple examples may include letting someone go ahead of you in a grocery line, a school car line, or just though a door.  Some more involved examples may be to give to someone in need such as our recent fire victims, or helping out our elderly neighbors. 

"Integrity can be defined as firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values or the quality or state of being complete or undivided."

This week I think we have all been looking at our own lives and desiring to change our examples we are giving to our children.  Short tempers, lack of patience, unkind words spoken to our husbands perhaps.  Our integrity or lack of is shown most clearly in the hardest times.  When we are tired, overworked, or just stressed by all that we have to be concerned with as moms, we must remain close to God and His Word.  Only then will our own lives be changed to reveal Jesus living in us.  And that is the example we need for our children.
