Pray for your kids — bible

I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word.

Deal bountifully with your servant,

that I may live and keep your word.

Open my eyes, that I may behold

wondrous things out of your law.

(Psalm 119:16-18 ESV)

The Bible feels like my lifeline as a Christian. It is. I pray for my kids that they also will understand this and first learn to read it, then grow in comprehension of the depth of meaning it holds.

My experience as a new Christian (I was born again when 18 years old) was that God gave me a fervent hunger to read the Bible. This clearly comes from the Holy Spirit so I also pray for my children that God will give them this gift — an avid hunger for His word.

’Man shall not live by bread alone,

but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

(Matthew 4:4 ESV)
