Praying God’s Word is the most effective way to honor God’s Will for our lives and the lives of our children…which are His ❤
As a Mother, one of my favorite books (and one I most often give as a gift) is Jodie Berndt’s PRAYING THE SCRIPTURES FOR YOUR CHILDREN.
As parents we often find ourselves feeling helpless…especially when our “babies” start growing up and making their own decisions. (Which starts at the age of two 😜)
Our tendency is to work hard at controlling their actions and their environment…and we fail…because these things are NOT in our control. (But we keep trying!)
PRAYING THE SCRIPTURES FOR YOUR CHILDREN is a WONDERFUL resource to help us “let go, and let God.” Jodie has filled her book with specific prayers that cover the needs of our children, and what could be better than praying God’s Word over them?
The amazing thing is, our Father provides for US as we surrender our will to His. We learn to trust Him more…we gain opportunities to experience His goodness, His provision, and His faithfulness…which naturally grows OUR faith. (Not just the faith of our kids) God always extends His blessing beyond what we can even imagine ❤ (Ephesians 3)

Don’t let the enemy draw you down the trail of discouragement and hopelessness. Get out God’s Word and take charge over him…He’s not the boss of you. (Or your kids) In Christ there is victory over any obstacle, and blessings that come through our obedience.
Our kids are never too old to be prayed for! Can I get an amen?
Just another reason to remember our armor…and our sword:)
