“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”Proverbs 22:6 KJV
So important to train a child up in the wisdom and knowledge of the Lord. The investment we make in a child concerning God’s word and prayer will have an eternal impact. Your child may be the next apostle Paul or Peter and their formative years as a child are vital to where they go and what they do throughout their lives.
When a child develops a love for the Lord and prayer early on they will draw near daily unto Him and will be used greatly to impact this world for God’s kingdom. May every parent have the attitude of Hannah who dedicated Samuel to the Lord. He became a great prophet of the Lord leading Israel. This began with his mother choosing to dedicate his life to the service of the Lord.
The prayers we pray over children will not return void. Children can be challenging at times but this is why we must raise them through the wisdom and leading of the Holy Spirit. Nothing we sow to the Spirit is ever done in vain. Be committed to dedicate your children to the Lord.
