Teach me Your way, O Lord... Psalm 86:11 (NKJV)
Sending a little prayer idea as you begin your new school year. Why not read a Psalm each day or week with your children, praying together for God’s protection and blessings, that you will shine as lights for Jesus in this world.
Today’s TEA CUPP: You can also read a Psalm during your own quiet time and pray for your children and their friends. Today I have Psalm 116 for you, divided up into the TEA CUPP.
T for Thanks:
I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving,
And will call upon the name of the Lord. Psalm 116:17 (NKJV)
E for Exalt:
Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
Yes, our God is merciful. Psalm 116:5 (NKJV)
A for Admit:
I will take up the cup of salvation,
And call upon the name of the Lord. Psalm 116:13 (NKJV)
C for Call:
I will pay my vows to the Lord
Now in the presence of all His people. Psalm 116:18 (NKJV)
U is for Understanding our story:
For You have delivered my soul from death,
My eyes from tears,
And my feet from falling. Psalm 116:8 (NKJV)
P is for Promises:
I will walk before the Lord
In the land of the living. Psalm 116:9 (NKJV)
P is for Petitions:
I love the Lord, because He has heard
My voice and my supplications.
Because He has inclined His ear to me,
Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live. Psalm 116:1-2 (NKJV)
God’s blessings to all children and parents and teachers out there!
