Today’s blog is kinda different, but I really feel led to share this with ya’ll. I took some notes when my cousin taught on how to pray for your children using the ABC’s. We know that even if you are currently in a season of waiting, we should still cover our children in prayer. I’m going to challenge myself to pray over all four of our children (by name) using these ABC’s every single day. This is so important as parents, and I believe that this is a great guide as to where to start. Of course, allow the Holy Spirit to lead you while praying!
