“Prayer turns ordinary parents into prophets who shape the destinies of their children, grandchildren, and every generation that follows.” -Mark Batterson
One of the greatest gifts you can give your children, or grandchildren, is to show them what it means to love Jesus with your own life. Be a living example of a life shaped and anchored in prayer. There is a laundry list of reasons why we may not take prayer seriously, or only go to prayer during those ASAP moments. We need a fresh love again for prayer! How about as parents, we lift the bar on prayer in our homes, and teach our children what it means to call upon the name of the Lord, no matter what our circumstances? If we want our children to follow Jesus as adults, then let’s make it a priority for ourselves to follow and love Jesus with authenticity and passion.
You are the spiritual thermostat in your home. Let’s keep it hot by persevering in prayer!
How have you been shaping your children and grandchildren’s destinies?
