Praying They Love the Way God Made Them
As the world crumbles, as society disintegrates, and roles and genders are obliterated – God's Word stands. As even the Christian community erases masculinity from the Bible versions, and families abdicate God's standards for the family – the Christian Home is getting harder and harder to build. But one truth remains, God has promised His blessing on those who will believe Him enough to obey Him!
Now comes the challenge. Parents, do you know what God wants from your sons as men and from your daughters as women? In some areas the Lord wants similar character for boys and girls, but in most areas, His plan for a young lady GREATLY DIFFERS from His plans for young men.
The Lord Almighty, God of the Universe has made men and women differently, with different qualities, different roles, and different purposes within His great plan. So, again I ask from God's Word -- Parents, do you know what God wants from your sons as men and from your daughters as women? As we walk through many passages in the Scriptures this morning we will see a portion of God's wondrous plan. And we will see anew and afresh that praying, teaching, and modeling the Word of God is the key to raising, nurturing, and launching children that please the Lord. We need to be learning how to pray for our children from the Scriptures.
Please stand and listen to the Lord speak from Psalm 139.13-18.
