Ask a parent about her greatest blessing, and she'll likely tell you about her children. It's such a privilege to raise children. Sure, parenting is hard work and it has its ups and downs, but the joy, the tremendous joy, children bring is immeasurable. We want the best future for our children. We set aside money for them, make plans for their education, and try to help them make wise decisions.
But God has a even bigger life plan for our children than we do. He wants to develop their gifts and talents and see them develop the traits of Jesus Christ Himself. After all, God has their eternity in mind. As parents, there's one more thing we should be doing for our children, praying. Our faithful prayers help unlock God's character within our children. The Bible says that the fervent prayers of a righteous person accomplish much.
Lord, Bless My Child shows us with HOW to pray for our children. As a parent, I know it's easy to get stuck in a rut of a quick bedtime prayer of, "Lord, please keep Billy safe." But, if our children are our greatest blessings, shouldn't we be more diligent? After all, the Bible tell us to "pray without ceasing." (1 Thess. 5:17).
The book consists of 52 chapters, one for every week in the year. Each chapter focuses on one specific character trait as the basis for that week's prayers. Of course, these aren't the only 52 traits you want to see in your children, but the book is a model which you can learn to use and adapt.
I like that each character trait is supported by passages of Scripture, quotes, and conversation starters. There is also room for you to write your own thoughts and record answers.
These are a few of the traits included:
* Compassion
* Honesty
* Responsibility
* Trust
* Laughter
* Wisdom
This book would make a beautiful gift for parents and grandparents alike.
