Pray for Your Children

IMG_1440

Do you pray for your children? 
I mean really pray for them-not just bless them this day or heal them from this cold or help them at school. While all those are good prayers, I believe that there are prayers where you just go to war on behalf for your kids. You know where it’s not just about the present moment but you end up praying BIG and BOLD prayers for your child.
Think about it for a moment–Who else can pray for them more honestly than you?
You know everything about them already, you’ve watched them grow each day, you know their struggles, their strengths, their weaknesses, their desires, their goals/plans/dreams–you are equipped for battle on their behalf.
Prayer is a big component in our family.  Dan and I know we have three prayer warriors in our home and yes I include our 18 month old.  Before she could say “mama” she knew to say “amen!” These girls have faith and already have experienced the power of faith in their lives.  I remember when our oldest was around 2 1/2 years old and she wanted me to play with her and I would say oh mommy’s “head is hurting, I can’t right now.” She would gently reach out and put her little hand on my head and say, “In Jesus name!”  Then she would turn to me and say “ok, let’s play, you are better now!” See kids learn so much from watching us, don’t they?
Our girls know they can come to us for prayer anytime for anything and we genuinely pray about it. I know I can not be with them 24/7 or even forever–but the prayers I lift up will keep on going before them. You often hear there’s nothing like a mother’s prayer–I believe there’s truth in that. (nothing against father’s but there’s just something very special about a mom/mommy’s prayer)
I encourage praying BIG and BOLD prayers over your children–it will help them, it will sustain them, it will protect them, it will lead them, it will comfort them, it will bring them peace and most importantly it will in turn teach them to pray!

“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Matthew 21:22

    Like the food, shelter and clothing we provide our children. Setting the example of prayer and the importance of it, is so necessary for our little ones to feel whole and to know where to turn in their times of need. So they don’t lean on their own understanding, but call on the Lord. Praying with and for our children builds the foundation of their spiritual growth and relationship with God. Giving God acknowledgement of a thankful heart, as well as obedience to the purpose He has for each of us.

    So true! Knowing that you have parents/family that pray for you is always encouraging.
