Parents, if you don’t catch your children young & indoctrinate them with the word of God, it will take the Grace of God to correct them as adults. And if you have a wayward child, your hellfire has started here on Earth and you have failed the work God entrusted in your care .
🔹you need to look at your back & be sure your children are following you.
Lord, I release my children to Your care and protection, and I relinquish my will for them in favour of Your will. I know I can’t go everywhere my children go, but I know You do. Please Lord, protect & guide them. Give us wisdom on how to parent well. Give us peace in Your goodness towards our children In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Pray and guide your children today so that they will marry the right person tomorrow who will embrace you, welcome your family and be proud to call you her in-law.
