Prayer in the home

In the past few years my perspective of mothering has changed. I have older children and little ones. When my older children were young, I mistakenly assumed they’d all grow up to have the same values as I do and that they’d be solid in their walks with the Lord because of the training they’d receive. However, they don’t always choose that direction. I no longer make any assumptions.

As a result, I’ve spent a LOT more time in prayer with these last few little boys, as well as my other children. When I hold little Eli (which is often as I can) and am alone with him, nursing or rocking him to sleep, he gets a lot of prayer covering. I often pray that his little hands would be only used for the Lord and never used by the devil. I pray that his feet will only take him where the Lord leads him.

There are so many things that we should pray for them. Along with praying over their hands and feet, how about their mouths, that they will only speak what is wholesome and encouraging. We should pray their eyes would always be the light of the body and that their minds will be stayed upon things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous and praiseworthy. We should pray that they would present their bodies to the Lord as a living sacrifice and be worthy of being His temple. And don’t forget their hearts, that they would always remain pure.

I’ve never had such a desire to pray for my children as I do now.  I thank God for the desire He has placed in my heart and for the continued trust He puts in me to be a mother all over again. Children truly are a gift from the Lord and I feel so blessed.

QUESTION: How significant was prayer in the Bible?

ANSWER:

Prayer in the Bible is answered by God in miraculous ways. Throughout the Bible, we find many instances of God’s people praying and God answering their prayers. Through this list, you will see that God worked significantly through the prayers of His people:

  • Abraham: God agreed to spare Sodom and Gomorrah if He could find 10 righteous people in those cities (Genesis 18:22-32). Unfortunately, this was not the case and these cities were destroyed. However, God still answered Abraham’s prayer by sending His angels to remove righteous Lot and his family before the judgment fell. So, even though the evil cities were destroyed, the righteous in those cities were spared.
  • Moses: God miraculously answered many of Moses’ prayers including the parting the Red Sea (Exodus 14:13-22) and giving the Israelites good water in the wilderness (Exodus 15:25). Perhaps the most miraculous answer that God gave to Moses was when Moses prayed that God would spare Israel after the incident with the golden calf (Exodus 32:7-14).
  • Elijah: God miraculously answered Elijah’s prayer on Mt. Carmel when he rained fire from heaven in the showdown between God and the false god Baal (1 Kings 18:20-40 especially 37-38).
  • Daniel: Daniel’s whole career was spent in prayer to God his prayers were miraculously answered. Daniel prayed to be shown the king’s undisclosed dream and God answered him (Daniel 2:17-18). Daniel was thrown to the lions because he continually prayed to God and God spared him (Daniel 6:4-24). Daniel prayed for Israel and for forgiveness of their sins when the 70 years of captivity were nearing an end. God answered Daniel’s prayer by sending Gabriel to tell him exactly when the Messiah would come (Daniel 9).
  • The church prayed for Peter: The early church in Jerusalem prayed for Peter after his arrest by Herod and God miraculously answered their prayer by sending an angel to free Peter from prison (Acts 12:5-10).
  • David: God answered David’s prayer and forgave him for his sin after his adultery with Bathsheba (Psalms 51).
  • Christians today worldwide: God has miraculously answered a prayer from every Christian in the world today when he forgave their sins, made them new creatures in Christ, and gave them His salvation.

Prayer in the Bible was significant! God heard the prayers of these people and He answered in life-changing ways! Even though the power of God is beyond our understanding, beyond our ability to measure, God asks us to cry out to Him in prayer. He already knows our needs and desires, but He wants us to pray! As you read above, God works when people pray!

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

– We have all

sinned

and deserve God’s judgment.

God

, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.

Jesus

, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He

died

for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was

buried

, and

rose from the dead

according to the

Bible

. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your

Savior

, declaring, “

Jesus is Lord

,” you will be saved from

judgment

and spend eternity with God in heaven.
