What will your child worship this year? Will it be God or something else like sports, tv or even good grades? People were made to worship something, let’s petition God to make himself known to our children so they will be able to worship Him in Spirit and in truth.
Does your child understand that there is absolute truth? Do they know that truth comes from God and that they can access His very words by reading the Bible? Do they have a Christian Worldview?The world does not believe in truth they believe in following one’s heart and doing what is right in their own eyes. We must intentionally pray for our children to understand truth and where it comes from.
We all want our kids to have friends but sometimes I wonder why this is so important to us? Let’s pray for God to supply the perfect friends for our children and for God to protect our kids from bad alliances. You may want to discuss the different kinds of friendships. There is a big difference between showing kindness and being salt and light to the world and having a friendship with those individuals your kids are ministering too. Let us not confuse what the Bible says about friendships with what the world has to say about them.
