I am eternally grateful for my mom. She is awesome! And I am convinced that my faith is a product of her relentless devotion to prayer. I think my mom prayed so much eventually God got tired of hearing her ask for transformation in my life. So, after years of hearing thousands of versions of the same prayer, he called me back home. And I haven’t looked back sense.

Even if your child has turned away from God, He is only one prayer from them.

Never stop praying for your kids. Don’t allow their current circumstances to impact God’s power. Even if your child is light years from God, God is only a prayer away from them. One prayer can change everything.

Parents, you are painting a portrait of God for your children. What does the picture look like?

It is never too late to start investing in the faith of your children. God doesn’t operate like money. The outcome of your kids’ faith isn’t necessarily determined by the time you put in. God isn’t confined to such things.

It is also never too early to get started. Set the trajectory of faith for your children now.

The church plays a role in the faith of your children. But the primary responsibility is yours, parents. You got this. God would never give you a task and not equip you for it. Your children don’t need the funniest, most knowledgeable, or best communicator to build their faith. They need you.

So, give them what they need.

In your experience, what do youth need from their parents to build a faith that lasts and keep them from turning away from God? Leave a comment below and let’s continue the conversation.

I love you all. To God be the glory forever. Amen!
