EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
If you are a parent or grandparent, God has given us authority to pray for our children. We know their hopes, fears, insecurities, dreams, gifts, and abilities better than anyone else.
Understanding these words, you love them more than life itself, and no one has a heart for their well-being as much as you do.
Even though we can’t be with them every moment, and some of us can’t be with them at all ( broken heart situations)…God can.
You can trust that He will be with them in power when you pray. I, for one, cling to this. I have to fully understand that God is in control, even when I’ve tried everything I can do…(My heart is broken over my children.)
If any of you can relate, I pray along with you, with ALL that I can… because I completely understand the pain is intense and hits at crazy times when we least expect it to. Please, we can not give up on our prayers of hope.
Each time we pray, let us intercede for our kids. Pray God will bless their lives and give them the wisdom they need, God’s wisdom, and discernment in the choices they face. Pray that He will protect them, love them, open their eyes and heal them where they need healing, to bring “glory to God” and “hope” and healing to those around them.
Our children will thrive when we pray over them and trust them to God. Those who are daily pouring into your small children, don’t stop praying for them daily and do everything in your ability to show them you pray for them.
It may take what seems like a lifetime for results from our prayers, but it’s God’s time to work in their life as only He can, not ours. I cling to this every day; I’m still breathing. I know God will deliver His promises through our consistent prayer. They are truths within our lives!
