A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Has the gospel of Christ been taught and preached to your children while you pray for them?

Are your children being led astray by the urge to satisfy the lust of their flesh, by their attraction to the world, and by the ruse of Satan?

Do you pray for your children with their eternal destination in mind?

 

DAY # 302

TODAY’S REQUEST:

PRAYING FOR OUR CHILDREN

Psalms 127:3 Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.

Job 1:4 And his sons would go and feast in their houses, each on his appointed day, and would send and invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. 5 So it was, when the days of feasting had run their course, that Job would send and sanctify them, and he would rise early in the morning and offer burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Job said, "It may be that my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts." Thus Job did regularly.
Psalms 147:13 For He has strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your children within you.
Ephesians 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
Ephesians 5:8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
Ephesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
Ephesians 6:4 And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.
Proverbs 22:15 Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of correction will drive it far from him.
Proverbs 29:15 The rod and rebuke give wisdom, But a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
