Day One of the 21 Days of Prayer Challenge

"All it takes to lose the truth of the Word of God is one set of parents who fail to teach it.  And the result can be generations of men who don't know and fear the Lord."
(excerpt from Brooke L. McGlothlin's book "Warriar Prayers")

Today is the first day of the 21 Days of Prayer Challenge over at the MOB Society.  I only recently discovered the encouraging website so this is the first year I will participate and I am very excited!  All it takes to join us boy mommas is hop on over to their site, purchase the book (only $3.99), and pray. 

For day one, Brooke discusses the story of Eli.  We all know Eli as the priest who helped Samuel learn to hear the Word of the Lord, but how many of us ever caught the rest of Eli's story? 

"Now the sonsof Eli were worthless men.  They did not know the Lord."  1 Samuel 2:12

I found this very interesting.  Not one of us can take the responsibility of properly training our little warriors lightly.  That is what this challenge is about.  Throwing ourselves at the feet of a merciful God and standing in the gap for our sons. 

As the quote above speaks so clearly, we are only one generation away from losing the truth of the Word of God.  If you are Momma to a boy, won't you join me?
