When we talk about ways to help our family, friends, church, and even our children, we usually want to know the stuff to do. You may know what I am talking about:
the books to read that we might not read,
the disciplines to do that we try for a couple of weeks or even a couple of days,
the conversations to have with our children that never seem to happen.
Your Best Parenting Is Done by Prayer by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson is a great reminder of one thing we all need to do as parents who want to grow and want our children to grow closer and closer to God through Jesus Christ.
"As parents, we are all on a mission from the Lord to announce the love of the Father to our children and to encourage them, as much as we can, to believe it. We’re to tell them of the law so that they know that they need rescue, and then we’re to tell them of the Rescuer who has freed them from the law’s curse. But this monumental task is utterly impossible for us to accomplish on our own. We need rescue; we need a Rescuer too. So we need to pray for help." (Emphasis mine)
We need to pray for help!
We need to depend upon Jesus Christ more and more!!
Ultimately, through prayer, we need to trust our children to God.
