Parenting can be a challenging and difficult journey, filled with uncertainties and struggles. In a recent Warfare Parenting Podcast, Lisa Osteen Comes discussed the importance of the power of prayer and how it can equip parents to face the challenges of raising children in today’s world. We shared personal experiences and struggles of raising our own children and how we turned to prayer as a powerful tool to fight against the inner battles that our children faced.
Also, we discussed the impact that my new book, The Parent’s Battle Plan: Warfare Strategies to Win Back Your Prodigal, has had on parents who are navigating the complexities of raising children in today’s society.
One of the key takeaways was the power of prayer. We emphasized the importance of trusting in God and the efficacy of prayer to bring about change in a child’s life. We shared how prayer can be a source of comfort and strength during times of confusion and distress. We stressed the essential role of parents as prayer warriors, saying that they have the greatest privilege of being able to pray for their children and trusting that God will work in their lives.
Furthermore, Lisa emphasized the importance of seeking God’s timing and being patient. She shared how God has a purpose for each child’s life and how parents need to trust God’s timing and not be frustrated with His plans. She encouraged parents to be persistent in their prayers and to encourage themselves in the Lord when they feel discouraged.
Today we end this blog with a powerful word of prayer for parents who are struggling with their children. We pray that parents would not lose hope but would trust in God’s plans for their children’s lives. We speak a blessing over every child and claim that they would be radically changed for the season, fulfilling the plans and purposes that God has for their lives.
In conclusion, today’s message to parents is to embrace the power of prayer and to trust in God in every season of parenting. The journey of raising children is not an easy one, but with the right mindset and spiritual tools, parents can overcome the challenges and see their children thrive. This message of hope and encouragement is reflective of the impact that my newest book, The Parent’s Battle Plan, is having on families and the role that prayer is playing in equipping parents to raise their children in a broken world.
