The Power of a Praying Parent
The Power of a Praying Parent engages in faith as the starting point and the basis by which other graces of the spirit dwells.
A praying parent is there to advice their children on the discipline of the word of God because there is vital necessity for children to have this guidance while growing to maturity.
A praying parent is a role model in mentoring their children into understanding and living by faith and the word of God. It instills the morals and duties they must exert as contributory members of society.
So, "Faith is the foundation on which these morals in prayer are built".
However, much depends on the starting point of absolute faith in Praying Power, and as a parent when you pray effectively, you are sowing the seed of faith which your children will emulate in their morals as growing members of society.
So, you include them in your prayers, seeking their fruitful and healthy growth in the Lord.
In doing this, they learn to grow in the grace of the Holy Spirit, and the importance of prayers in their daily lives.
Now, when you pray, do it with your children and have absolute conviction and faith, understanding that God is there for your family always.
A praying parent will develop much Praying Power, as their practice of effective prayers increase.
In the Bible, Proverbs (1:8) it says:
"Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching".
The Power of Prayers on parents have been demonstrated and given in various verses in the Bible, and as we grow in faith and conviction, it becomes clearer to us, as parents to mentor our children as part of our faith, as is our joyful purpose in life.
Doubt and fear should be entirely banished from your consciousness, because they work against you in prayers. It causes restlessness, anxiety and tension that creates negative energy in prayers.
When doubt and fear creep in, hold to the truth that God loves you and that you are seeking Gods blessing by your reaching out in prayers.
The Bible tells you to Ask, seek and knock and that it shall be given you, according to your faith.
So, as a praying parent, take your mind and eyes off the body during prayers, (ie our eyes should be taken off self, and be removed from our own weaknesses) thereby allowing you to rest implicitly upon God's strength and his Almighty Spirit of love that knows no boundaries. While you do this, your children too will see the strength in you and their growth in faith and prayers will be increased on a daily basis.
