BRINGING UP CHILDREN UP WISELY

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Utter A Prayer

a) God has established prayer as the means by which we receive his supernatural help. And without supernatural help, we cannot live a life worthy of the gospel. Everything that distinguishes Christians from the world in a Christlike way is a work of God’s supernatural grace. God has ordained that this grace flows to us through prayer.

b) Maybe you have never prayed to God yourself. Or maybe you’ve prayed for years, but have a hard time knowing why. Most of us sense the desire to pray, and even want to develop a better prayer life, but we don’t know what to pray for.

2. Bringing Up Children Wisely

Loving Father Your word promises that if I bring up my children in the way they should go, then when they are old they will not depart from it.. Lord I ask that YOU give me wisdom to do just that – to teach my children the ways of the Lord, just as the mother and grandmother of Timothy taught him the Holy Scriptures from being a young child.

So Father I claim that promise for my children – I ask You to give me the wisdom as I teach them about Jesus and how He died for all the wrong things that we have done – so that we might be forgiven and one day go to be with Him in heaven.

Help me not to compromise on the truth and when they ask difficult questions - give me the wisdom and grace to have an answer for the faith that I have in You –I ask this in the name of Jesus, Who died for me and my children. Amen.
