PRAYING FOR YOUR CHILDREN


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 128


MEMORY VERSE:

Philippians 4:6 "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

Growing godly children involves depending on God in prayer. It is possible to pray and not really depend on God, but it is not possible to depend on God without praying. In Luke 18:1, Jesus emphasised the need to persist in prayer until the answer comes.


Keep on praying for your children and keep your requests constant before God as we live for Him day by day. When you live by faith, you are not to give up praying for your children. Your prayer for your children will make a long impact on them in their present life, tomorrow and their future. When time of difficulties arises, don't worry or fret. Instead of worrying, pray and let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns about them.


The Bible is replete with examples of parents that prayed for their children. Abraham prayed for Isaac and he prospered. Jochebed prayed for Moses and he was not killed with the verdict of the king. David prayed for Solomon and God was with him. His fame was known throughout the whole world. Isaac prayed for Jacob. He later became Israel and the father of 12 tribes in Israel.


Beloved, it is very important to pray for our children day and night. Later, you will marvel on what God will do in their lives. If Samson's parent had intensified effort praying for him, he wouldn't have died with his enemies. Unfortunately, his parents gave up. You must not give up on your children, no matter how difficult the situation may be.


As a praying parent, here are some areas in which you can target your prayer: (1) Pray that they will come to know Christ as Saviour in life (John 17:3) and pray for your grandchildren too. (2) Pray that they will be willing to make a total commitment to the Lord. (3) Pray that He will not only be their Saviour but Lord of their lives as well. (4) Pray that they will have a hatred for sin (Psalm 97:10). (5) Pray that they will be caught when guilty (Psalm 119:71) and that bad behaviour in their lives will be nipped in the bud before it gets so cheaply ingrained.


So, rise up now and pray for your children.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

Your children can run from you, from their upbringing, from the church. But, they can never run away from your prayers!! Keep praying.


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

YOUR CHILDREN SHALL CLING TO THE LORD IN ALL THEIR TRIALS; YOUR PRAYERS ON THEM WILL NOT FALL TO THE GROUND IN VAIN, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
