The most powerful way to pray for our kids

The prayers we pray for our kids never die.  They linger.  They walk with our kids throughout their life.  Isn’t that a comforting thought?

And there’s no more powerful way to pray for our kids than praying through the Word of God on their behalf.  That’s what I’m talking about with Mark Batterson in today’s video.

What a fun week it’s been hearing from Pastor and author of The Circle MakerMark Batterson.  He is not only a dear friend to my family but also one of the most passionate people I know on the subject of prayer.

Every time I have the privilege to spend a little time with Mark, I walk away inspired and equipped to have a more vibrant prayer life.  That’s why I’ve been so excited to share these interviews with you.  Today is the third and final conversation with Mark.

Lastly, we’re wrapping up this week with a tremendous giveaway. Not only will  your comment today enter you to win one of Mark’s books, but I’m also giving away a couple of sets of the Circle Maker small group curriculum. All winners will be announced Monday.

So, leave a comment about something you are praying for your child, or a verse from the Bible you’ve chosen to weave into their life through your prayers.  Throughout the weekend, Mark and I will be reading your comments and praying with you!

    Prayer is so important. Life today being so hectic seems to get a little thought here and there. My daughter just got married last June. I pray that God will give her a baby. Her husband and her will make wonderful parents. Their both around 37. They just moved from New Orleans to Springfield, MO. Now we are only 1 hour away from them instead of 12. Thanks.

    that I will release my desire to control my daughters decisions… and learn to guide her and release the rest… it is so hard to watch her make “mistakes” and not try to protect her… she’s my baby- flesh from my own body- and I have such a hard time letting go of her choices… i love her so much and so want her to love our LORD.

    I am praying for my sons to be protected from harm from their father. I pray for God to guard their ears, eyes and hearts as they interact with this man. I pray for God’s word to live in their little bodies so they can hear the truth when their father speaks evil to them.
