the desire to pray & play

Just a quick post to tell you about an amazing challenge for the month of July hosted by Erica Dawson on her blog of the same name. It's called Pray & Play.

This is something I've been meaning to do for awhile - set time aside to pray for each of my children but other things (even the things of God like studying the Bible) often tune up their squeaky wheel volume.

For this challenge, I'm going to ask God to help me set aside 20 minutes in my day to pray for my children (that's 5 minutes per child) and ask Him for specific verses to pray over each of them. I'm not sure how the playing part will play I set individual play time aside or do a group play or do I mix it up? But I'll trust God to work that out.

Does this sound like something that would benefit your spirit too? Hop over to Erica's blog and let her know. :)

Andrea! Thanks so much for inviting others to join in the challenge!

As far as the "play" part goes, do what works best for YOU. If I can get a solid 30 minutes in with the kids together, I'll be pleased as punch! :-)

I think I might try to do a separate time for each maybe once a week??? We'll have to see how that will go.
