You always fulfill your covenant and keep your promises of unfailing love to those who love you and obey your commands." ~ Daniel 9:3a-4 The greatest thing we can do for our nation is to pray for our nation. I am convinced if there were ever a need for prayer, this is the hour. As believers, we complain about prayer being removed from our educational system. But I think it is unmitigated hypocrisy to carp and criticize about children not being able to pray in school unless we ourselves are praying at home, don’t you? It’s one thing to protest that our children cannot pray in school. But we must teach our children to pray in the home. We are unvarnished hypocrites to criticize, yet not teach our children to pray — by both gentle instruction and by example. Our children are watching us and will model our behavior. Teach your children how to pray in the home. Take them beyond “Now I lay me down to sleep.” We rattle off our little prayers, but have you really set your face to pray, and instruct your children in effective prayer? ~ based upon: "Love Worth Finding" - a devotional by Adrian Rogers Where will you spend ETERNITY?
