You’re now the proud parents of school-age kids, and they’re about ready to head off to school, if they haven’t already. Let me ask you something. Are you praying for your kids? I don’t mean, “Lord, be with Suzie as she heads off to school” kind of prayers. I’m talking about the kind of prayers described in James 5:16 that are “fervent and effective.” What do they look like? They’re prayers that agree with God’s will, that are passionate and enduring. “God’s will” kind of prayers you’ll only know by being close to Him. Passionate prayers come out of desperation. And enduring prayers are those forcing us to wait. These prayers are different for everyone, so give praying for your kids more thought. Make them effective, and make praying a habit.
