Praying For Children
Jesus Himself gave us the example of praying for children. “Then were there brought unto Him little children, that He should put His hands on them, and pray...” (Matt. 19:13).
Pray that parents will realize the priceless privilege and the grave responsibility of parenthood, and that they will be willing to make great sacrifice if necessary in order to be careful, faithful parents.
Pray they will teach children in early years to trust God and to pray. Pray they will read Bible stories to them and take the children to Sunday School, and above all, bring them to trust in Christ as their personal Saviour.
Pray that children will be helped by parents and teachers to develop good character early in life. Pray that parents and teachers will discipline lovingly and consistently.
Pray for abused children and that their circumstances will be changed that they might experience loving care.
