Amazon has a scratch and dent sale from time to time. So I bought 5 of these for $25 to give to my boys and two of their cousins a few days before Christmas. The regular price is still worth it for a great book that drives the imagination, encourages creativity and calls for quiet on roadtrips.

Tim Challies posted a link to this on 12/1, and I thought it would be a stellar way to start the year.

This is a calendar of sorts for systematically (but not comprehensively) praying Scripture over your children. The first five days look like this:

1 salvation “Lord, let salvation spring up within my children, that they may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory” (Isaiah 45:8, 2 Timothy 2:10).

2 growth in grace “I pray that they may ‘grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ'” (2 Peter 3:18).

3 love “Grant, Lord, that my children may learn to ‘live a life of love,’ through the Spirit who dwells in them” (Ephesians 5:2, Galatians 5:22).

5 self-control ” Father, help my children not to be like many others around them, but let them be ‘alert and self-controlled’ in all they do” (1 Thessalonians 5:6)

Go and do.
