52 Weeks of Prayer For Our Daughters, Raising Teens

3:52~ Daughter

What is home, when your home is split in two?

Is it your room?

Is it your stuff?

Where do you belong?

Home is more than the physical place– Home is most certainly made up of the people who love you.  Mom.  Dad. Step-parents.  Siblings. Grandparents. Neighbors. Friends. Teachers. Coaches. Church leaders.  Home is full of love.  It’s where you play.  It’s where you learn.  It’s where you continue in the legacy set before you.  Its where you will find your sense of self and create your own legacy.  It’s where you belong.

And one day, the most PERFECT home will be waiting for you.  You are loved even more by your Heavenly Father than your earthly parents.  You always belong in his family.

Your home is vast. Your home is constant.  Your home is yours.  When life feels like its spiraling out of control, go to the place where you belong…..Home.

There is plenty of room for you in my Father’s home. If that weren’t so, would I have told you that I’m on my way to get a room ready for you?

(John 14:2, The Message)

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for our home.  Both the address we claim and the people who fill it.  Thank you for the home you are preparing for us where we will live with you forever.  What exciting hope we have!  I pray that she always feels her sense of home.  Through her school years and the course she takes after graduation, may she remember the love and legacy of home.

As she goes out one day to make her own home, I pray for those who will fill it.  Loved ones who will sit at the table, who will laugh and share life together.  May she always have a home full of love.
