Do you ever feel there isn't enough time in the day to pray? We've all been there. I find that praying for our children is something we think about and may do from time, but not on a consistent basis.
There is power in the parent's prayer. As parents we are advocates with authority and power over our children. As someone once said, a mother is the first book read and the last put aside in every child's library. Mamas, we have influence over our children. We have a weapon against the enemy's plan for our children and that is prayer. What if we took it serious and really prayed blessings over our kids every week or every day? Psalm 129:8 says, "The blessing of the Lord be upon you. We bless you in the name of the Lord".
What a change we will see in their precious hearts and our own! As we begin this fresh new school year, I thought it would be great to start with 5 blessings to pray over your children. As moms and dads, let's take on the challenge of praying for our children every day.
