Happy Birthday Mackenzie!

7 years ago, November 13, 2006, God blessed Sasha and me with Mackenzie Alexis Posey. She is a smart, loving and creative child.  She keeps us laughing. She loves music, art, softball and gymnastics. She is learning the word of God through Junior Bible Quiz. I love to hear her creative prayers.  

In his book, Praying Circles around Your Children, Mark Batterson profoundly writes, "Make sure the heavenly Father hears about your kids daily!" He discusses praying scripture over your kids.  

Here are a few of the verses that I pray over my girls.

1. Luke 2:52 (NLT) "52 Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people."

I pray that my girls will be like Jesus and grow in wisdom, in stature and in favor with God and all people.

2. Ephesians 5:15 (NIV) "15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise,"

I pray that my girls live as those who are wise not as those who are unwise.  I want them to have wisdom in their choices and in their relationships.

3. Colossians 1:9-10 (NLT) "For this reason, since the day we heard about you,we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,[a] 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,"

I pray that God will fill my girls with the knowledge of His will, that they would live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way, that they would bear fruit in every good and grow in the knowledge of God.

Hope your daughter had an enjoyable time on her birthday. My girl sure did enjoy her birthday party at the event space Chicago yesterday. We have a lot of kids in the family so the party was filled with the little ones. But it was a very entertaining event and we also took some lovely pictures.
