You’ve fed them… bathed them… read to them… and tucked them in.
Now your most crucial parenting (or grandparenting) job begins…
Pray for them!
Dennis Rainey says, “As parents of SIX, Barbara and I realized long ago that we would have no ultimate control over whether our children chose the narrow gate that leads to life (Matthew 7:14, NASB) or the wide gate that leads to destruction.
But we discovered what we could control… the way we pray for our children as they prepare for, and enter, adolescence.”
As it says in Lamentations 2:19,
Arise, cry aloud in the night at the beginning of the night watches; Pour out your heart like water before the presence of the Lord; Lift up your hands to Him for the life of your little ones.
