Pray for our Children daily

 

I felt led to read the first chapter of Job yesterday. As i was reading, I asked the Lord what he had for me in this chapter. Many of us know that Job was blameless before God and stayed away from evil. Also, the Lord made mention to the devil how blameless he was. As I was reading, I was thinking ok, I guess the Lord is saying I have some things to work out in my walk ~ and I am good with that!
As I closed the bible, I felt like the Lord told me to read it again...so I did - as i read through it, I saw something that I never saw before nor can I remember anyone ever speaking about it within the teaching of prayer or intercession -
Job 1:5
5 When these celebrations ended—sometimes after several days—Job would purify his children. He would get up early in the morning and offer a burnt offering for each of them. For Job said to himself, “Perhaps my children have sinned and have cursed God in their hearts.” This was Job’s regular practice.
(In the old testament, the priest would make intercession for the people - they would before God to seek forgiveness. After the cross each man and woman has the right and responsibility to seek repentance before His throne)
So what does this passage mean then? If the most blameless man stood in prayer for his sinful children, shouldn’t we take something from this passage? Yes, you child has to repent before the Lord on their own, but here is the spiritual principle - You as a father / Mother figure have the parental authority to speak over your child’s life!
Job spoke before God on a regular basis about His children - this wasn’t just a pray like "Jesus, watch over my kids today" - not that, that is wrong - but I believe we have the right and authority to speak their destiny and purpose over their walk! If we do not enforce our God given authority over our children - then who is speaking over them?
I believe this passage is in there to set a principle and model we are to live out - pray over our children daily! We say our children are gifts from God (when they are being good :) - just kidding) but they really are! How do we take care of a gift we cherish - we protect it! Your prayer over your child is like protection - Yes, they have their own will and we can't change that -Only God - But your prayer about it can get the Hand of God to move...
We have two options - pray and believe for our children to walk out in their purpose or sit back and see how it unfolds - hmm...I will take option 1. Ask the Lord to move you into a prayer life over your children - ask Him for His heart for them - what He has for them - ask that they may have visions and dreams, move in the gifts of the spirit, and hear His voice. What we want for our walk, we should ask for more of an outpouring on theirs!
Be Blessed
