The Comfort of Protection – Holiness

“Call them all together—men, women, children, and the foreigners living in your towns—so they may hear this Book of Instruction and learn to fear the LORD your God and carefully obey all the terms of these instructions. Do this so that your children who have not known these instructions will hear them and will learn to fear the LORD your God.”
Deuteronomy 31:12–13 NLT

Reflect on this statement, inspired by today’s Scripture, and let it guide you into prayer:

I pray that because we fear You, we will always run toward You. I pray that we would always understand that to fear You means we would never desire to do anything that grieves or saddens Your heart.

Prayer

Lord, You have said that to fear You with reverential awe is the beginning of wisdom and moves our lives away from evil. I pray that the fear of the Lord would be established deep within my heart and the hearts of each of my children.

I pray that we would daily stand in the light of Your holiness with broken and contrite hearts; bow before You with meek and quiet spirits; and kneel at Your feet in quiet worship as we behold Your glory and majesty. I pray that because we fear You, we will always run toward You. I pray that we would always understand that to fear You means we would never desire to do anything that grieves or saddens Your heart.

May we live to bring a smile to Your face. May we always care about what You think and how You feel. As You bless us, Lord, I pray that each one in our family will daily be a blessing to You. May we live to bring a smile to Your face, Lord.
