PRAYING CHILDREN

Last night we had our weekly prayer meeting in our home. Since coming to this community 12 years ago, we have been praying with neighbors of all different denominations. What a joy to pray together or our community and for the nation.

Last night there were nine little children with us in the prayer meeting. It was so encouraging to hear these young children praying fervently and intelligently for needs in the nation. We must not ever think prayer meetings are only for adults. Always include your children in prayer meetings. Of course, if they are praying daily at Family Devotions, they will be used to praying out loud. This is the greatest training we can give our children. We can give our children the greatest education, but if we have not taught them how to spontaneously pray, we have failed in our teaching.

I love the words of Leviticus 26:8 where God says, “Five of you shall chase an hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.” The greatest way to pursue your enemies is by prayer and intercession. How many children in your family? Do you have three! You, your husband, and your children (five of you) can put 100 enemies to flight! Isn’t that amazing! What if you have more children? You can send more enemies to bite the dust.

One of the most powerful things you can do as a parent is to raise mighty prayer warriors.
