I hope all of you see the movie War Room. Not only is it an encouragement for marriages, there are so many other life lessons we are reminded of. One of them is the influence we have on our children. In the movie, their daughter, Danielle, writes down a list of prayers she has for God. She learned this fromseeing her mom’s list.
What an incredible opportunity we have to lead our children to experience God’s answered prayers! He is the same God that parted the Red Sea, healed the injured, rose people from the dead, etc. (You may need the reminder, too, that GOD does answer prayers; He is powerful; He is at work today.)
Do your children see you fervently pray? Do you pray with them? Pray in boldness, so your children will grow to know that Jesus does care, is alive and is at work!
We have the greatest opportunity, responsibility and privilege to
“tell the next generation
the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord,
his power, and the wonders he has done.” Psalm 78.4
Toward the end of the movie, Danielle checks off an answered prayer, deepening her trust and faith! I’m convinced, if we will pray with our children & teens, they will grow mighty in faith!
If you want the parents and grandparents at your church to catch a vision and be equipped for making faith at home a daily routine, look into scheduling our parenting conference. (See here.)
