that ignites the power of God.
The prayer on this page is all about spiritual growth.
This prayer reminds us that our children are watching us.
Therefore, if we want our children to grow spiritually,

Note that of course we want to act a certain way in order to honor God and because we love him. That being said, every parent is well aware of the tremendous love we have for our children. This prayer helps us to intentionally realize how our actions affect our children. That knowledge can powerfully motivate us to change what we know we need to change.
The Bible gives us invaluable principles for raising children.
The one tip I'm going to highlight on this page is Deuteronomy 11:18-19 NKJV
In these verses, God tells us to weave the Bible into our life every day
and in every circumstance.
"Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart***
and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand,
and they shall be as frontlets on your eyes.
You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up."
Deuteronomy 11:18-19 NKJV
*** This means the words of the Bible
Reading Bible stories to your children is a great way
to bless your children.
Even teenagers can sit with parents and take turns reading the Bible.
When a family draws closer to the Bible
a family draws closer to each other.
Note that Christian bookstores
also have great devotional books for children and teens.
