Why Pray for Children?
2 Truths to Remember:
- Never underestimate the challenge of parentingThe journey of raising godly kids in an ungodly world is a relentless roller coaster of incredible heights and crushing depths. Joy and sorrow, laughter and tears, fun and frustrations crash like waves on your heart through the events in the lives of children. Fulfillment and fatigue, exhilaration and exhaustion are all part of the process. Just when you think you have a handle on the challenges, your child hits another stage of development and the path is again clouded with fog. There are no perfect children, no perfect parents, and no perfect parenting situation. Every parent, every child-raising situation is unique.
- Never underestimate the power of a praying parent. There is hope! There is a living God who is supremely intelligent and infinitely powerful who already knows and loves you and your children more and better than you ever will. If you learn to cooperate with God in prayer for your children, He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than you can ever ask or imagine. Prayer for Your Children – Elmer L. TownsThere is a great joy of seeing our children walking in truth (see 2 John 1:4)
Not only we learned how to pray effectively for our children, most importantly we got to know about the God we pray to. We have established a personal, loving relationship with Him. In the Old Testament, His name is Jehovah. In the New Testament, His name is Jesus. We have experienced Him intimately and found the Peace that surpass our understanding. Not only we learn to pray for our children, we know now how to intercede for our loved ones, our leaders, our association, anywhere, anytime and just about everything. Our goal is to pray more frequently, passionately, scripturally and effectively for our children and loved ones.
