“Arise, cry out in the night…Lift your hands toward Him For the life of your young children.” – Lamentations 2:19
When things get confused in the life of children, we curse ourselves and grieve our self. “Alas! I have grown up my child properly. I have not been a perfect parent” thus our mind and heart will worry and grieve us. But to correct and guide our children’s life, it is not must that we need to be perfect parent. Because there is no any perfect parent anywhere. None of us is perfect. But we all can be the praying parents for our children. This can be done by all of us. When we pray for our children these children’s life will have change is certain.
Just as the Bible says, “Train up a child in the way he should go,” and teach them God’s words and God’s ways and to honor God with obedience. If not given importance to obedience if a work is done without importance the children will be diverted from life.
“Children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward.” As per this God’s verse our children obtained from the grace of God. It is our duty to nourish and grow there in sweet nature of God. We must have such thought in us. Then we will not try to impose our desires upon them. “The growing of the child is mine; but he belongs to God!” – if this thought is in us that will provide more peace. For this Hannah was a good example. She first wept for the disappearance of shame upon her through an issue of child. Then she did not grow the child for her selfishness but offered to God. (1Sam.1:11) He was changed as a man of pleading for the people of Israelites in the open gate of Heaven.
We can’t be perfect parents. But let us be praying parent like Hannah. Then like Samuel, our children also will be certainly taught by the Lord.
– Bro. Samuel
