I must confess, I have experienced this numerous times and I have learned when it happens, take action, ask questions and Began to Pray for the Children !
Prayer is an essential tool in our Children’s lives. Children are exposed at a young age to many negative forces ; peer pressure, violence, drugs and alcohol are only a few. It is important that we Pray for our Children daily.
As parents, we all desire the best for our Children. A good education, , to make right choices and to become productive citizens in society. However, if we do not model the discipline of prayer in our Children’s lives, How will they ever know the Power of Prayer ?

3-Prayer will help you to Love your Children unconditionally even if you do not Agree with them & some of the choices they have made through life’s journey.
