Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.Philippians 4:6
Parents, Pray about Everything!
You have probably heard this verse over and over again. Do not worry, but instead pray about everything. Everything means being intentional and praying for our children. It means that just like God protects us and loves us, we can protect and love our children by trusting in Him. DO not worry, and instead bring up your requests before the Lord. He created and knit our children together before they were born, so we can trust that He will take care of them. Does this always mean we will get the answers we want? Not necessarily, but it does mean that we are not alone in this parenting job.
Whether you were a single parent or two parents trying to work together, you are not alone. God can offer up His wisdom because He is a good Father, and He knows how to parent His people and love His people. So, we can trust that He can give us the advice we need when it comes to parenting. Worrying will not fix things with your children, but trusting in the Lord will. Whether your child is grown and on their own or is still growing, you can bring your requests before the Lord on behalf of your children. It is one of the greatest things we can do as parents.
A Prayer to Remember
You are a good, good Father and I know that you have the best wisdom when it comes to my children. May I be the kind of parent you are to me, and may I trust that you give good wisdom, not for harming, but to better my children. I trust in you. Amen.
