‘”Pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord. Lift your hands toward Him for the life of your young children.” -Lamentations 2:19 (NKJV)
Here it is…Sunday morning. Upon arising, I found myself praying for my children, my grand children, and my great grand babies. Some of them KNOW the Lord in a personal way and serve Him. ….Some do not. My heart was sad because I want more for them…I pray for an abundant life for them now, and in the here-after! I don’t want them to miss heaven!
Then I read the above verse in Lamentations. I had never noticed this verse before. It was a comfort to me!
If you have children that have strayed…take them before the Lord. Lift your hands in praise to Him for what He is going to do in their lives. HE promised that if we brought them up right, they would return…. “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it…” -Proverbs 22:6
As parents, this should be our prayer everyday for our children! Go before the face of the Lord in prayer…pour out your heart to Him like water. Then lift your hands to Him in praise and trust Him for what He has PROMISED to do in their lives!
