How Every Parent Can Pray For Their Kids

Portrait Of Happy Family

As parents, we are given a biblical responsibility for the discipleship of our kids.  Whether you feel fully equipped to do this or not is a legitimate feeling that many parents have. Obviously, this is why the church is here.  To help equip you for this purpose.  At the same time, one thing that we can all do is pray for our kids.  I came across this prayer guide and wanted to share it with you.

Take time to look up the verses that correspond with the prayer requests.  What’s amazing is that as we read the bible verses and pray the prayers, God will equip you in greater ways than you could have imagined to disciple and mentor your own kids!  We have a part in raising what could be the greatest generation for the gospel that the world has ever known.  Lets not drop the ball!
