Okay, so it’s February. The Christmas decor is put away (well, most of it; never mind the knot of lights that my Instagram friends see dangling from the dogwood tree outside my window…44 days and counting, BTW), and the promise of Daylight Savings Time is still too far away to be counted on as a spirit-lifter. If you’re like me, you might be feeling a bit weary.
Which is where Galatians 6:9 comes in. This is my all-time favorite prayer verse for teachers (those blessed souls who keep at it with our kids, day after day), but it’s also a good one for anyone who might be struggling to restore a relationship, extend forgiveness, get out of debt, or just stick with the goals they set for the new year. Any good thing that can sap your strength and make you want to quit the race can be targeted with this prayer verse. Why not try it today for yourself, or for someone you love?
Heavenly Father, let ____ not become weary in doing good, but help him/her/me remember that at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9)
