Last week I had the honor of guest posting for Aly at her blog Her Sword.

This post is really close to my heart because it is all about my children. Well, not just mine but your too. Our children are our legacy; they are the doors to the kingdom of Heaven. This post was inspired by one of my favorite Bible verses, Psalm 8:2;

“Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants, You have ordained strength, because of Your enemies that You may silence the enemy and the avenger.”

Knowing that my little children hold this kind of power has sparked a whole new heart behind my parenting. You can learn more about that later, but right now I want to help you gain some ground in the battle for your child’s heart.

What I love about prayer is it often does what we can not. Why is that? Because prayer allows us to invite God into the situation; and when we invite God into the situation, you’d better believe He is going to show up powerfully.

I may not be the perfect teacher (actually, I know I’m not) but when I pray and invite God into it, I can trust that He will push through the static and bring understanding in a way that my kids will be able to receive it.

Prayer is powerful. So today, with the help of Her Sword I am sharing with you; this:

5 Ways to Pray For Your Children (4)

As a mom I feel deeply responsible for the nurturing and teaching of my children. I believe the hearts of our children are the key to the growth of God’s kingdom.

Psalm 8:2 says, “Out of the mouths of babes and nursing infants you have strength, because of your enemies, that you may silence the enemy and the avenger.”

Children that are equipped with the Word of the Lord are POWERFUL. Many passages and chapters in the Bible talk about training up our children in the way they should go; my absolute favorite of which is 1 John. (Read More… )

I want to thank Aly at Her Sword for giving me the opportunity to write for her blog. It was such an honor. I truly admire your work and am blessed to be a voice on your page!

  1. Hello! Stopping by from Peony Project and read your original post on Her Sword but wanted to make sure you got the comment 🙂 I love this and all the ways you found from 1 John! I just had my first child and have been convicted about how I don’t pray for my husband or son in the way that I should. prayer is such an intamite part of our relationship with Christ. thanks for these!

  2. Love how you say prayer allows us to invite God into the situation and he always shows up powerfully. These are words a mamma needs to hear. It gives such encouragement to pray for our children when sometimes we can feel powerless in a situation.
