Why Pray?

From as early as my early twenties, I have been praying for my children. It may sound weird but all of my children have been prayed for before even one of them was conceived in my womb! I am now seeing the answer to some of my prayers.

As  women, I believe there is power when we (and men) pray over the destiny of our children. The words we have can either build or destroy them - they have LIFE! 

If this is so, how much more power will be available to us when we come to the One who gives us life, our heavenly Father, with heart-felt prayers for our children. 

The chaos in the world we are living in requires a certain level of discernment for our children.

How can we navigate through the array of dilemmas in a world of unpredictable occurrences? The answer, I believe, is prayer.

Let's start with the Lord's Prayer:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.

 

Amen
