Intercession on Behalf of our Children

Lamentations 2:19

Pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord. 
Lift your hands toward Him for 
the life of your young children.

Parenting is a hard job.

  There is no time off for good behavior 
and it is not only for our young children who we need to be praying. 
Praying for our children, for their life, for their salvation, for their future, 
for their hearts is our duty as their parent~no matter whether they are young or old.

It is not a job for the weak, but for those who 
are humble before God standing in the strength He gives us daily.  
Come before Him and ask Him how it is you should 
be lifting your children up before Him.  
He is so generous in His grace and mercy that He will certainly guide you in this. 

Those who trust Him are never disappointed.  
Ask Him to reveal to you anything that needs to be addressed in their hearts and lives,
you know our enemy is always lurking to kill, steal and destroy whatever or whoever He can.

Let's take our prayer for our children to a new level of faith this season.
  Let's lay them before Him like Abraham did 
and see the blessings He pours out over us (and them) 
as we surrender to Him what is already His.

Speaking of praying, children, families, etc...

One of my very best friends, Mariah, is in need of BIG prayer! Please check out my blog for more details. I spent all day at the hospital today with her family, and it was a sweet time of PRAYER, PRAYER, PRAYER and faith at work. God's kindness was revealed in SO many ways, and we are amazed at sweet Mariah's progress. Please pray for her.. and for me and all those of us who love her so dearly. It has been VERY hard and emotional for me... suddenly to realize that one of my best friends, who I've known for 10 years, has serious brain cancer is... hard. Emotional. Scary.

BUT, God is SO GOOD, and has shown his might, kindness, mercy and faithfulness in HUGE ways already. Thank you in advance for the prayer. She's a trooper, and her faith is incredible.
