Pray for your children!

Good morning, dear friends!For some time now we have been discussing life lessons from the story of a Canaanite woman that is found in Mathew 15. The actions of this woman are an example for all the mothers and parents. Possibly, you are not a parent yet, but you are called to raise up disciples for Christ, and for this reason the principle covered here applies to you as well. The story speaks of the reward for being persistent in faith.
«Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying: “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed.” But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, “Send her away, for she cries out after us.” But He answered and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Then she came and worshipped Him, saying, “Lord, help me!” But He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.” And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O, woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour» (Mathew, 15:21-28).
Persistent faith of a mother has a great reward. I want to thank all mothers. Raising and nurturing of children is not an easy work. There are different challenges in life, but God has promised that He will always be with you. God expects us to be consistent in faith. May God help us not to lose faith in God’s ability to raise our children, to get them establish in life so that they would live a godly life and be healthy both physically and spiritually. It is sou important that this world would be full of well-raised children that have learn to deal with hardships looking at their parents. Children that have not experienced difficulties when growing up usually break and give up easily as adults when they have to face life challenges. God prepares children through their parents. If we as adults work very hard to protect our children from any possible hardships, it is not a sign of love. Our children must be taught how to face hardships of this life. I want to remind you that these principles apply to both natural and spiritual children that we are raising to be disciples of Christ. Pray for your children, ask Him to help in raising them. Ask God to give you wisdom, patience, endurance to raise the children so that you can be a positive influence in their life. And receive what you’ve asked by faith! If your children are grown-ups and they are not saved yet, entrust them to God, pray and expect a miracle. If you do not have any children of your own, pray for your family members to receive salvation. Ask God to help you to raise your children for God, – so that they would love God and have fear of God and serve Him all the days of their lives. Let’s pray. “We declare our children to be godly, to love God and be healthy in their spirit, soul and body. We declare them to be successful and to stay on the right path. May all the plans of the devil be overthrown in the lives of our children, in Jesus name! We plead the blood of Jesus Christ and His protection over our children! We believe our children to be righteous and remain in the Lord’s house. They will be able to overcome the streams of evil that are flowing in this world, because they will be taught of the Lord. We believe our children to be able to withstand all the trials and not break. We put up a wall of protection for the devil and call down God’s protection from heaven for our children. We proclaim them under protection, in Jesus’ name! Thank you, God, for salvation that is rising in our children like a river!” May God abundantly bless you! Till tomorrow! Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
