Psalm 127:3 says” Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
When was the last time did you bless your children? And no, I am not talking about giving them possessions.
God says our children are a heritage from the Lord which means we are to say blessing over our children. I remember when I was a single parent. The first day my daughter started school we would stand in the middle of our living room and I would pray over her before she left out the door.
I would pray she would remember everything her teachers taught her, I would pray she pass her test and pray that no harm in any way would come her way. I prayed that her teachers would find it a pleasure to have her in class. I prayed that she would exceed in all her studies. I did this if she was in school.
When she became a teenager, those prayers became more intense because she was at the age where she can make a few of her own decisions. And though I did not always approve I prayed that God would guide and give her wisdom to make the right choice.
Now my daughter is married and have her own family. I mommy still prays for her my son in law and my grandbabies. The best thing as a parent that we can ever do for our children is to teach them how to pray. What I taught her she has passed down to her children. My grandson who is ten years old tells me how he prays and talk to Jesus.
Our children are a heritage from the Lord and though they can take us through some storms in life, as my mother would say” while they are little you carry them in your arms when they get older you carry them in your heart.” So very true indeed.
I challenge all parents rather your children live home with you or not start today by praying for your children, they are our inheritance and God has entrusted them in our care. Pray for direction, guidance, finances, careers, friends and above all that they keep Jesus the center of their lives.
