Spiritual Welfare of Adult Children

Job regularly got up early to offer a burnt offering for each of his 10 adult children, in case they had sinned or cursed God (see Job 1:5).

He knew, like we do, that each will give a personal account to God (Romans 14:12).

But he also believed, like we do, that a righteous parent’s prayers are powerful (see James 5:16).

Job made time for ten. Do you pray for yours?

It’s a Privilege to Pray

Featured

God sits on His throne in His temple. Jesus sits beside Him, vigorously pleading for those He loves. For us. The Holy Spirit is there too. On our behalf He utters groans that words cannot express. And then there’s us. Sitting here, yet welcomed into the presence of this Almighty God (Psalm 11:4, Psalm 18:6, Jeremiah 50:34, Hebrews 7:24-25, Romans 8:26-27).


–He invites us to come with confidence (Hebrews 4:16).


–He tells us our prayers are powerful and effective (James 5:16).


–He says pray about anything and everything. When we do He gives us His peace (Philippians 4:5-6).


–He tells us that faith the size of a mustard seed can say to a mountain, –“Move!” and it will move (Matthew 17:20).


–God says He loves us more than we can know and that He is able and willing to do more than we ask or imagine. (Ephesians 3:18-20)
