As a mother and grandmother, I am so grateful that I can lift my grandchildren and children to the Lord in prayer. I love to pray for protection, wisdom, and guidance in their lives. One of my favourites is praying for my grandchildren's future spouses which the Lord has chosen for them. How exciting is that!
Here is an encouraging and motivating quote from Mark Batterson on this topic. Of course, this also applies to aunts, uncles, etc., anyone who has an influence over the children in their lives.
"You don't have to do everything right as a parent, but there is one thing you cannot afford to get wrong. That one thing is prayer. You'll never be a perfect parent, but you can be a praying parent. Prayer is your highest privilege as a parent. There is nothing you can do that will have a higher return on investment. In fact, the dividends are eternal.
Prayer turns ordinary parents into prophets who shape the destinies of their children, grandchildren, and every generation that follows."
Wow! Am I the only one excited about this? I don't think so. 8-)
