Do you think about praying for salvation for your kids? I think sometimes we just walk along in our Christian life thinking that if we do the right things, lead by example and take our kids to church, they will eventually accept Christ as their Savior. They will “get” our faith. I now believe that we have to do more than this. We have an enemy out there whose goal is to kill, steal and destroy and he is roaming about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. We have to pray that God will lead our kids to a saving knowledge of Jesus. I pray for the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to be present in their lives daily. I pray that they will not only accept salvation, but be able to internalize their faith and make it their own. Join me today in the following prayer:
Heavenly Father, I come to You pleading on behalf of my children. They are faced with so many challenges to their faith in this world today. Draw them to a deeper understanding of faith in Jesus Christ. Help them to become grounded in their beliefs and learn how to defend and describe their beliefs to unbelievers. I thank you for the professions of faith that my boys have expressed. I continue to pray for my baby girl that when she reaches the age of understanding , she will accept you as well. Guard my children’s minds from the arrows of doubt that the enemy wants to shoot at their little minds. Help me to be faithful to share God’s Words with them so the seeds of salvation might grow in their lives.
