Day 11: 31 Days of Praying Scripture for Children
This week marked the 50 year anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech.
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
King knew what it was to struggle for equality. He knew the importance of good character.
Deuteronomy 31:6 says, "Be strong, take courage. Don't be intimidated. Don't give them a second thought because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He's right there with you. He won't let you down; He won't leave you.
What a promise we can stand on today!!!
Lord, may this child always be strong and courageous in their character and actions. May they rest assured that You, their GOD, is going ahead of them. May they feel your presence at all times. -Amen
