Praying For Greatness in Your Child!
A sense of purpose...a calling...we all want to belong to something that is greater, bigger, and grander than ourselves. This is how God made us- He gave us a heart for greatness! And as parents, our job is to teach, inspire, and encourage our children to pursue greatness in their life. A practical way you can start this from an early age, is praying for specifically for greatness. As a newborn your child might struggle to sleep at night or at naptime- you can pray and ask God to help your child be a great sleeper! If your baby struggles to gain weight, pray and ask God to help your baby be a great eater. As a toddler, your child might want to express their self by hitting or biting instead of talking. You can pray that your child would be a great communicator and a great friend. As a new baby comes into your child’s life, begin praying that they would be a great big brother. As they go to preschool or stay with a babysitter, pray that they will be great at adapting to change. And remember, you prayed it, so expect it to happen! We can begin to pray our children’s greatness into being from the very beginning!
