do you pray for your kids???
and not just a “now I lay me down to sleep…”
I mean do you REALLY pray for your children? or the children you may have one day?
for them to have a compassionate heart, for their protection, future relationships, their purity, their witness, future spouse, their purpose?
the ol’ cliche’ “the Lord works in mysterious ways”
is so very, very true
Sunday we heard a great message from our youth pastor on the habit of prayer
& how it is imperative if we are to have a healthy relationship with our Savior.
During the message we heard testimony of how prayer was modeled for our youth pastor every single day….
He saw his dad reading God’s word and praying
early in the morning
every. single. day.
He saw him..
he didn’t just hear of his dad’s quiet time
or wasn’t just told he should have a quite time
it was modeled for him..daily…what a legacy!
& how fitting …..

won’t you join me???
in praying for your children
Amanda, at A Royal Daughter has been so kind as to create prayer prompt cards
feel free to download or not
they’re merely a suggestion
you know your children
their needs, your family’s needs, strengths, weaknesses
I simply want to challenge you &
encourage you to pray for your babies
and maybe they aren’t babies anymore?
maybe they’re wayward, away from the Lord in complete rebellion?
maybe yours are infants, pure as the driven snow
maybe your depressed, or stressed
maybe your exhausted from all the swimming or fishing or hiking or cheering or baseball or VBS?
pray for your children
pray with your children
let them hear you pray
don’t try to impress them
He already knows all there is to know and so much more
He simply wants to hear from you
need a great place to start?
try the model prayer, found in Matthew 6:5-8
use it as your guide as you pray for your child’s
purpose, provision, pardon, protection
together PRAISE HIM from whom all blessings flow
His word is clear
“Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving.” Colossians 4:2
“Pray without ceasing.” I Thessalonians 5:17
sweet dreams :O)
