21 Days of Prayer Challenge

Several months ago I heard about a book called "Warrior Prayers" which is book on praying for your boys.  Being the mom of two little boys, this interested me alot.  I pray for my boys daily but this book goes a little deeper.  Recently, I saw the 21 days of prayer challenge on Facebook and started clicking away.  The author did a giveaway of her Ebook to those that signed up for the challenge at that time so I signed up!  Don't worry, you can still purchase the book by just going HERE - you'll find a link on the left side of the blog to purchase the book or the Ebook. 

Here the basics for participation in this challenge from the Warrior Prayers blog:
Here’s how to participate:
  1. Purchase your own copy of Warrior Prayers: Praying the Word for Boys in the Areas They Need it Most (just $5.97)
  2. I recommend getting your copy of the eBook bound or placing it in a 3-ring binder (or buying it for Kindle!) so that you can easily flip from page to page and leave your book open all day to the topics you’re currently praying. To help you go deeper, study questions accompany each of the main chapters.
  3. Commit to praying for your sons ten times a day for 21 days straight. (Note: this IS a commitment. If you feel led to participate, pray and ask the Lord to give you the strength, courage and endurance needed for the length of the challenge).

This challenge begins on June 8th - next Wednesday and I've signed up to be a leader through my blog so you can join me too!  I have both the Ebook and the Leader's guide and will be posting based on that information.  I plan on printing both this weekend and will let you know on Wednesday when to expect to see posts (I'm leaning towards I'll be doing a post each day on this topic but want to read through the info first :-)) I look forward to sharing this info with you and hearing about your stories too. 

Are you going to join me?  If so, leave a comment and let me know!  I'm going to try to have a Linky set up for the posts starting next week but, if that doesn't work, we'll do it all through the comments instead :-) 

Use this weekend to get your book and prepare to make an impact on your boys :-)

Count me in! I did the 21 challenge in April & it changed my heart towards my boys. And I think it changed them, too! My 4 year old asked, "Mom, why do you pray for us so much?" My response, "Because I love you & Jesus loves you." I'm excited to start praying so much for them again.

I'm one of those MDO moms in the south. ;) That post caught my attention. Praying we can encourage one another. (minmit@gmail(dot)com)

Looking forward to journeying with you.

I'm in! You seem like a kindred spirit. May we all be able to support one another through the next few weeks.
