We have all heard the stories of praying mothers and grandmothers like Susanna Wesley, whose children and grandchildren became great men and women of God. This week I realized that I need to become part of that group and spend more time praying for my children and grandchildren.
Today more than ever there is a need for Godly men and women to stand in the gap for the next generation.
Psalm 106:23 “Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy [them].” – Psalm 106:23 KJV
This generation is faced with more opportunities and choices than any generation in history. Therefore the need for prayer is greater than ever.
Please take time each day to pray for your children. There really is no greater thing that you can do for them.
Here are some resources I have used that I think you will find helpful.
|The Power of Praying for Your Adult ChildrenBy Stormie Omartian / Harvest House PublishersYou can stay involved in your adult child’s life through prayer! As your grownup child steps out into the real world, they will need your prayers more than ever. Through prayer, you can entrust them into God’s loving care. Using stories from other parents and insight gleaned from personal experience, Stormie Omartian will help you seek God’s guidance regarding your adult children and their career choices, sense of purpose, marriages, parenting skills, leadership, struggles, addictions, faith, and other important decisions they’ll have to make.
