Praying for Your Kids

Page 1


What are we really asking for when we pray for patience, forgiveness understanding or wisdom for our kids? Ultimately, we're trusting in God alone to grant us our requests. 



Prayer is powerful! God can work in the hearts of your children more than you could ever imagine. And your prayers for them will change your life too. Kathi Lipp, speaker and author of 21 Ways to Connect with Your Kids, speaks from her own life to illustrate why and how to pray for your own children.
