Nurturing the child


Father, I know that children are special to You because Jesus rebuked His disciples for trying to push the children aside when their parents brought them to Him (Mark 10:13). Just as He took the little children in His arms, touched them, and blessed them (Mark 10:16), help us to interact with them in ways that will bless, uplift, encourage, teach, inspire and speak life into them!!!!….rather than curse. Deliver all from the rage that could possibly cause us to physically or verbally abuse any child. Help all to submit themselves to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to work the fruit of love, life, patience, gentleness, kindness, goodness and forgiveness.

Your Word says that if I spare the rod, I hate and will spoil my child, but if I love him/her, I will be careful to discipline him/her (Proverbs 13:24). Teach all Father, how to discipline with
wisdom, understanding also that great harm can be done by simply sparing them the rod of correction. As perfection of character is not of this world, Forgive all for the parenting mistakes we may have made in the past. Continue to remind us Father, children are a heritage from You and the fruit of the womb is a reward (Psalms 127:3). We lean to you Father,  depending
on You to make all the parents You have called us to be.

For there is hope of a tree….that if it be cut down, it will sprout again and the tender branch thereof will not cease…. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Let’s hold our families close on this Independence Day! May it bring country pride, joy, happiness and laughter to all and remind us just how good it feels to be free…..surrounded by friends and family…

Powerful you are!
