“Prayer turns ordinary parents into prophets who shape the destinies of their children, grandchildren, and every generation that follows”
— Mark Batterson
“let the little children come to me, and do not forbid them; for of such is a kingdom of heaven.”
TODAY’S PRAYER THOUGHT
As we pray, it is vital that we include the children around us. Imagine what it will be like if we are more intentional and include children in our prayers? What if we were intentional in including local schools in our daily devotional? Children are integral to society; we need to pray for them in a specific manner. We can start by praying for protection as they face dangers, hurts, radical agendas, and worse. We can pray for parents to get help in raising their children through parenting conferences, good books, and the like. Let’s pray for our churches to have effective children ministries. Let’s be a community that focuses on our children!
