Among the lovely goodies that I have been accumulating as gifts for her over the past weeks, I know that there are few gifts you can give to your children that are as priceless and eternal as praying for them. <–Click to TweetPhoto credit: Ashelia via photopin cc
This past week, I began reading through the book of Luke in the Scriptures. I love Luke’s account of the Gospel. He is so descriptive, and seems to leave no stone unturned. When I reached the account of twelve year old Jesus being left behind at the Temple in chapter 2, I was taken aback by the beautiful gems that lay in amongst the holy words. Prayers taken from observing my beloved Lord in His childhood, that you and I could pray for our children.
Following these certainly won’t cover the countless individual prayers we could raise before the Father, however, if God is gracious enough to answer these prayers for our beloved young ones, we can rest assured that they will be on track to be God-fearing, parent-honouring jewels in the King’s crown.
