According to nationaltoday.com, October 6 is National Transfer Money to Your Daughter Day. Don’t tell my youngest.
I’m not sure if I’ll observe it. What I will do is pray God’s Word. Will you pray with me?
“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” Galatians 5:13
Of this verse, A.T. Pierson says: “True freedom is found only in obedience to proper restraint. A river finds liberty to flow, only between banks: without these it would only spread out into a slimy, stagnant pool. Planets, uncontrolled by law, would only bring wreck to themselves and to the universe. The same law which fences us in, fences others out; the restraints which regulate our liberty also insure and protect it. It is not control, but the right kind of control, and a cheerful obedience which make the free man.”
I often refer to these boundaries as God’s umbrella of protection. So I pray God’s Word for that protection for me and my loved ones here.
Replace the pronouns with the appropriate ones for the person (or yourself) that you are praying for.
Praying for you in this. And don’t forget to share this on social media or with a friend who could benefit. It would mean so much to me. And if you don’t want to miss a Praying God’s Word Wednesday, subscribe over on the right hand side of this page.

Thanks for visiting, Lisa!
Yes! Boundaries are good things! It just takes maturity to realize it.
Joanne Viola says
I love the quote you shared, Lauren. I think today this is the 3rd mention of fences or boundaries that I have read. May I willingly stay under God’s umbrella of protection and enjoy all He provides there.
I love it when God does that, Joanne!

Paula Short says
Amen. Praying with you Lauren. I enjoy Praying God’s Word Wednesday. The prayers are like a little prayer prompt for me. Thank you. Blessings.
I’m so glad, Paula. Just my intent.
Amen! Freedom in God only comes with surrendering to Him and His ways! You wouldn’t think there would be freedom in surrender – but in God there is!
So much freedom. And peace if we allow it into our lives.
