I am such a huge fan of the MOB Society. No, it’s not what you think. I’m not a fan of the mob, although I think writing a few stories involving a speakeasy in Excelsior Springs, Mo would be awesome. The MOB Society is actually a blog ‘For Moms of Boys, BY Moms of Boys’. I found them one day on Facebook while we were in the midst of a huge mess with my son.
Every day they had posted prayers based off scripture for sons, and every day I prayed those prayers over my son. I even printed out the calendar and sent it to work with my husband, because let’s face it raising boys to be Godly men in a sinful world, especially when our own lives aren’t perfect, isn’t easy and I wanted to make sure we had all of our bases covered where my kid was concerned.
On January 1st, they posted a blog called Choosing A Verse to Pray for 2o14. Here’s the link.
I’ll be praying Luke 10:27 over my son this year because I think it cuts to the chase of all other prayers I could pray.
Dear Lord, maker of the heavens and the earth, I pray that Logan will turn to you, that he’ll learn to love you in earnest with all of his heart, with all of his soul, with all of his strength and all of his mind. I also pray that his heart will overflow with compassion that he will learn to love himself as you love him so that he can love his neighbors as he should.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
If you’re a mom of boys, whether they’re toddling around or earning their degree, this site is should be on the top of your reading list each day.
