I’ve been praying for my children probably since they were born. My guess would be most parents do as well. Tucked away on the pages of 1 Chronicles is a king who also prayed for his family:
“And now it has pleased You to bless the house of Your servant, that it may continue forever before You; for You, O Lord, have blessed, and it is blessed forever.”
(1 Chronicles 17:27, NASB)
King David’s family was blessed by God to continue on with not only the work of the building of the Temple, but with a long lasting line. A forever line.
As parents, may we be faithful to pray for a long lasting line of believers to stem from our family. Those who will fix their eyes on Jesus, live according to His Word, and be faithful to Him for all of their days.
But we must do our part to ensure this will happen. David asks a powerful question in 1 Chronicles 29:
“Who then is willing to consecrate himself this day to the Lord?” (5b, NASB)
I’ve been thinking on this for a few days now. As a woman, a daughter, a wife, a mom, and a Mimi, what am I to be doing?
I hope you will join me at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE as we look at what we are to be doing regarding our greatest contribution.
