Family Prayer

There is a pressing need for marriages today.

Marriage and divorce are both common experiences. In Western cultures, more than 90 percent of people marry by age 50. Healthy marriages are good for couples’ mental and physical health. They are also good for children; growing up in a happy home protects children from mental, physical, educational and social problems. However, about 40 to 50 percent of married couples in the United States divorce. The divorce rate for subsequent marriages is even higher.

The book of Hebrews assures us that in Jesus Christ we have a high priest who sympathizes with us in our circumstances: Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need—Hebrews 4:16 (ESV).
Will you draw near the throne with us to lift up today’s families through prayer.

Stay the course when others doubt you!

There are times when you will face doubt or even doubt yourself as a parent.  Surrounded yourself with a strong support group and remember this one thing, the Lord can handle more than you.  Begin today by giving your daily battles to the Lord.  

“And Everyone  assembled here will know that the Lord rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us! As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him.” 1 Sam 17:41-47 (NLT)
The first giant was delay

The second giant was discouragement

The third giant was disapproval

The fourth giant was doubt

When you face these four D’s, hold on to this promise: This is the Lord’s battle!
