Keeping His Commandments

Dear God,

I know that in this life, what really counts is that I have great respect and reverence for You and that I try my best to obey Your commands. If I do that, I won't go wrong, and that includes being a great Mom to both my DS and DD. Lord, You have given me a lot of instruction and guidelines on parenting, and it makes me feel confident to follow You because I am certain that You know what is best for me and my kids. Thank You for constantly seeing the need to include parenting in Your word. Moms like me can always look back and get the assurance that what we apply to our children is right.

You law is fully packed of other ideas that are not specific to parenting, but they can (and should!) also be used in how we raise our kids. Please help me, Lord, to fear and obey You in all areas of my life, for that is in truth, my whole duty in life.

Now all has been heard;
here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
for this is the whole duty of man.
Ecclesiastes 12:13


  1. This mom's prayer blesses my heart. Thanks for transcribing your heart here.
    Enjoy being a mommy!


    I like the friendship garden in your sidebar.

  2. Yes, and thanks for being blessed by my prayer. Every Friday morning, I meet up with some Mommy friends in Starbucks and share the Word. These days, our leader discusses parenting to us, and I am really blessed by what God has in store for Moms like you and me. With Him, we are all guided carefully, and are assured of the paths each one of us take with our kids.

    Enjoy your Mommy journey as well! =)

    P.S. I like little moving flowery gadgets like that, lol!
