Chapter 2 – Pray That Your Adult Children Will Develop a Heart for God, His Words, and His Ways

I think that the more people have a heart for God the more they want to know him.

I know the more I spend in scriptures and talking and praying to God – the more I love him and want him in my life.  The time we spend with him the more we become like him as well.  We all miss the mark and can never live up to God’s standards.  We can only come close to making the changes necessary if we are close to God.  So we all need this walk with Him and praying to Him.

We can ask God to have our adult children turn their hearts toward the Lord and be open to Him.  We can also ask that their hearts be closed to Satan and his lies and open to only God’s truth.

Stormie says that the desire in any person’s heart to know God will be the thing that saves his life.  That’s because anyone who truly wants to know God is going to eventually e led to the feet of Jesus, the Savior.

People seek these others in the world who claim to save you, but Jesus is the only one who died and rose again to prove that He is the one who really can. When w are in Christ, we become a new creation, old things have passed away; behold all things have become new.

Let’s pray that our adult children will desire to live God’s way.  Once they are living in God’s way – Jesus said he would send the Holy Spirit.  It is that spirit that comes into our lives, but only it can reside in us when we are believers of Jesus.   As we pray for our adult children, God will soften their hearts and open them up to hear the Lord’s voice.

Proverbs 12:28

In the way of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.

Help us to share with our adult children all the good things the Lord has done for us and in our lives.

Amen.
