Passion for 7 Mountains (A Note from the Author)
Growing up we are taught to dream and become something great. Children love to pretend to be like hero’s (Superman, Batman, Firefighters, etc.). Why? As parents and teachers, we tell our children to reach for the moon. We tell them to dream of a bright future and have hope. Those dreams are never supposed to go away. It may not be possible to become Superman when they grow up, but children are able to become the greatest possible version of themselves (which is even better!).
God has given everyone gifts, callings and abilities. He has placed the 7 mountains in the heart of man. There is a perfect model of Government, Family, Celebration, Religion, Media, Education, and Economy in heaven that he wants to show us. He has hopeful eyes for humanity, and wants us to use them. God speaks to his children about ideas, plans of success, and solutions to the world’s problems in every avenue of life.
You can help your child become one of the greatest investment bankers, dancers, hairstylist, or movie producers. They could become the best mother/father, politician, or the greatest receptionist. From the bottom of the mountain all the way to the top. It is our goal to teach our children to bring change in every area of life.
This book is here to proclaim that everyone can be great. We can teach our children to help a lot of people, and save a lot of lives. We can raise up our children to disciple nations. We can raise our children to be free to dream! Our children will be, “Children With Purpose”.
Suggested Use Of This Book
This book was written to help your children begin their own personal journey to encounter the God of all of life. The Seven Mountain Prayer Book can be used along side any regular bible reading and family devotional time. After continuous use, they will learn to discover God and themselves in everyday life on the Seven Mountains. Feel free to allow them to have fun discovering new outlets in each area of life.
The Seven Mountains will first be introduced in a school session with a teacher named Miss Fitzgerald. Your child/student will learn about the seven mountains of life along with seven new students, each from a different continent. Miss Fitzgerald will introduce the mountains to the class through a new curriculum that they will be learning. This school context will be in the beginning and end of the book.
Praying through the Seven Mountains will have four main components to each page:
Personal Representative, a Supporting Scripture, Heaven’s Thoughts, and “Let’s Pray Together”.
Personal Representative – Each mountain will have five Personal Representatives. They are not exhaustive in any way, but they are a glimpse of what type of person/occupation would represent that mountain. This book will contain 35 Personal Representatives.
Supporting Scripture – Each scripture is a biblical reference to help show you and your child/student the heart of God as it pertains to the Mountain and Personal Representative. We have displayed one scripture per page. Feel free to discover more scripture for each mountain.
Heaven’s Thoughts – This area is designed for your child/student to see the best traits, characteristics in that particular individual. This section is essentially the most hopeful perspective. It is a paragraph description on heaven’s views towards that mountain or person. The intent is to introduce fresh hopeful perspectives and reinforce the knowledge of God. It is our hope and prayer that you and your child/student would be filled with hopeful eyes towards these role models and any other person or occupation.
Let’s Pray Together – This is a wonderful opportunity to pray about everything that has just been presented. Let’s pray together, utilizes the Scripture, heaven’s thoughts, and the mountain of influence and develops prayer for you and your child. During this time, your child/student will be welcoming in the attributes and roles that the person and mountain represent. They will also pray for those attributes and characteristics to be shown in their own life. Lastly, they will pray for the particular person or role model that is in their life demonstrated under this mountain. So, be encouraged and consider adding your own prayers after the let’s pray together section.
