Dilapidated Barns (Praying Scripture for Your Children: A Week’s Guide — free printable)

Alongside rolling corn fields with the soil still dark and wet, and small rural towns where dilapidated wooden barns crumbled slowly inward, I drove. 
Greeted by a young school age girl who shyly, graciously, met me at the door and ushered me into the unfamiliar church building, I met her mom and the other coordinators of the Building 31 (formerly MOPS) group that meets at Rochester Assemblies of God church. The women in this group were wonderful and we connected over our love for Jesus, and our desire to dig into God’s word. 
Thank you to my new friends there. Together we are going to be praying God’s words back to him, for our kids, for our families and friends, and to the One Who Sits Enthroned on the rim of the earth. (If you are interested in joining us, here is a free printable for you! “Praying Scripture for Our Children: A Week’s Guide.“)
This evening, as my husband practiced drums for worship team, our family enjoyed listening to this song over and over again by the Jesus Culture band. Take a moment to listen with us. The words to “Your Love Never Fails” are beautiful! (All credit to Youtube for letting us use this.)
Nothing can separate
Even if I ran away
Your love never fails

I know I still make mistakes
But You have new mercies for me every day
Your love never fails

Chorus:
You stay the same through the ages
Your love never changes
There may be pain in the night but joy comes in the morning
And when the oceans rage
I don’t have to be afraid
Because I know that You love me
Your love never fails

Verse 2:
The wind is strong and the water’s deep
But I’m not alone here in these open seas
Cause Your love never fails

The chasm is far too wide
I never thought I’d reach the other side
But Your love never fails

Bridge:
You make all things work together for my good

Hello friend, what have you been listening to this week?

    Love that song! We have mostly been listening to Pandora kids praise this week. Was blessed by your words this morning. 🙂

    Thanks for the printable.

    I have started working out in earnest and when I do, I listen to Carmen, David Crowder Band, and Chris Tomlin, as well as a few secular songs. The song blowing me away recently is Newsboys "God's Not Dead." I also have really enjoyed several of the songs on David Crowder Band's latest album and "Strong Enough to Save" by 10th Avenue North.

    Jody,

    I haven't checked out Pandora's kid praise yet. I listen to other things on Pandora but will have to find those too.

    Thank you.

    Tandemingtroll,

    I'm glad you like the printable. The verses on there excite me to pray for my kids, for my husband, and for myself.

    Ooooh, Crowder, Newsboys, … good stuff! We like Toby Mac and Superchick too.

    Have a great week.
