Homeschooling can have some very interesting days. I’m not one of the moms who felt “called” to homeschool, but because of my calling to be in full time ministry – homeschooling is part of that right now. There are days when it is rewarding. There are other days when I pray – more like groan . . . “O, God please make up for any of my lack . . .”
A few weeks ago I realized that other children were gathering around their flag poles to pray. So, I gathered my “class” of Channing and Britton and decided we would join the “unseen” throng of others and call on God. I’ve been known to pray long enough for my children to tap me in desperation . . . or even fall asleep. But, this wasn’t going to be me praying, it was THEIR turn to pray.
It was my youngest son’s prayer that grabbed me. Britton. The one who runs to the window to seek out the groundhog to shoot while we are in the middle of English. The one who has a different plan to most “class plans” I may think up. The one who asks questions upon questions . . . when sometimes I wish he’d just “memorize” that answer . . .
He prayed and he said, “God would you please give us a spiritual awakening.” I was amazed! How did my twelve year old know to pray those words? I don’t know . . . but I do know there is a God in Heaven who heard. I join along with him and pray that our Heavenly Father will answer, “Yes!”
Will you please join with us! “O, God, please give America a spiritual awakening . . . and restore righteousness to our land once again! In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
