RELATIONSHIP PROBLEM WITH TEENAGE CHILDREN

(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. Relationship Problem With Teenage Children


Dear heavenly Father, I am so sad that the loving relationship I used to have with my children has deteriorated so much over the last few years. They seem to deliberately ignore all I say – and I have no-one to turn other than to You. Lord, I ask that You would change their hearts…. I love each of my children and feel that I must have done something very wrong in their upbringing – nevertheless You promised that if we bring up our children in the way they should go, when they are old they will not depart from it.

Lord this is a promise that I want to claim for my children – I honestly don’t know how they have become so unruly, or how they could ever be returned to a right family relationship – but I ask Your forgiveness if I have contributed in any way to their rudeness – or if their poor behaviours have resulted from my poor parenting skills.

Nevertheless Your promise stands and I pray that in Your grace and in Your time… and in Your Own special way You would draw them back into You arms of love. Change them Lord into people that love You with all their hearts - Change ME too Lord I pray, and draw us all back into Your gracious and forgiving arms of love. I ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen.
