Strong and Courageous
Posted on 10 November 2021
I have a friend who has 3 boys and her prayers for them as they grow to be men, is to be ‘strong & kind’.
It has stayed with me a long time. That’s exactly what we need in this world - More strong and kind guys (and of course girls)!
Our Strong & Courageous pennant has that as the thought and is then grounded in the verse from Joshua 1:9 which says:
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
I don’t think it’s just for the boys of course, (who am I kidding, we ALL need this reminder!) but after our very feminine ‘God Keeps His promises’ collection, we definitely needed something a little more masculine!
I hope every time your son, nephew or grandson sees this, they are reminded that God is with them wherever they go, and THAT is how they can be strong & Courageous!
Do you have a constant prayer you pray over your kids?
