Proverbs 3:5-6 (NASB) “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
It breaks my heart every Sunday that my child stays home from church and does their own thing. I pray for opportunities to speak words of truth and encouragement to my child. I have asked God to do whatever He needs to do to draw my child back to Him. This is a hard prayer to pray though because it could mean heartache and pain before that child will return to God. I have been praying for my child for 10 years and I continue to this day. I know that God is listening and I am committed to pray as long as it takes; because in reality that is all I can do.
Targeted, specific prayer for your child(ren) is the most important tool we have. Invite your child to share how they would like to you to pray for them. My child will ask me to pray now because they already know I am praying for them. Hang in there you are not alone, you may not understand what is going on but God does.
