Growing In The Lord
By Roy A. Brehm
After the child has received Christ as Saviour, he will not need less of your prayers and guiding counsel. Quite the contrary! He has received a new life. And that new life will need to be fed and guided along the right channels. To that end he will need to have a daily set time for reading and carefully and unhurriedly meditating upon the Word of God. And following that there should be ample time for prayer. All this will constitute his own quiet time which should be in addition to the family worship time. If possible, the first half hour or more in the morning should be strictly reserved for that purpose.
