Start with Prayer

In the post Following Instructions for a Successful Day, written about was how Abraham was concerned who his son Isaac would marry so he sends someone to find the perfect mate for his son. Abraham didn’t want him to marry someone where they currently lived because the people didn’t know the One True God and worshiped idols.

The servant of Abraham shows his faith in God and prays for certain things to happen as he finds a wife for his master’s son. He found Rebekah as a wife for Isaac.

All parents hope their children choose the right mate. Prayer is so important in raising children and it’s so important in anything we do. Here is a video poem to inspire our prayers today: Blessings Throughout Each Hour.

Train a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not turn from it. – Proverbs 22:6

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.

  1. I’m following your WordPress blog and I’d like to extend an invitation to Tools For Christian Living, which began as a weekly e-mail devotional sent to the men of First Baptist Church in Grapevine, Texas on behalf of our men’s ministry department. After prayerful consideration, I’ve expanded this devotional to a blog format in order to take the message beyond the walls of our church. Feel free to share it with others if you feel led to do so. Thank you for your service to our great and awesome God!

    Randy Mosier,
