Australia Ministry Trip (Sept 26-November 10, 2017)
From September 26 to November 10, 2017, my husband, daughter and I will be on a ministry trip in Australia and New Zealand. The places we will be visiting are shown on the map above - along with the dates in which we'll be in these places (and what we'll be doing while there). Please keep this ministry trip and all of us in your prayers! Blogs will appear daily throughout this time, as I have written them and scheduled them in advance. I welcome your comments - and enjoy them! Just know I will not have Internet access for much of this time. So, I will look forward to reading your responses upon my return. Thank you for your understanding! And please keep reading to complete the "Reading the Bible in a Year" challenge and blessing! I am very grateful to Claire for her faithful blog comments (please everyone - join her in sharing each day as a discussion blesses everyone so much more!) And I am thankful that Claire has graciously agreed to add a bit more into her daily comments during my time of absence. Please direct special comments or questions which require immediate responses to her (on this blog). Blessings as you continue your journey through God's Word this year!

Promises to Claim for Your Children - Part 2

Warfare for Parents - Prayers for your Teenager 

- Isaiah 65:23-24

Each day this week, I promised to share with you a powerful Bible promise to claim for your children. I invite you to join me in praying. As you do, you will be able to rest in God. He will be at work in the lives of your children - in answer to your prayers.  How do I know? Because God's Promises cannot fail. In fact, He has PROMISED that His PROMISES will always accomplish whatever it is He has Promised to do:

"So shall My Word be that goeth forth out of My Mouth: it shall not return unto Me void (empty, or having failed), but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."  Isaiah 55:11   

Do your teens have problems with rebellion? Are they acting in such a way as to bring trouble into your life and home even though you have raised them to know better? Today's promise is just what you need...

God Promises that you will not labor in vain, training your children up right, only to lose them to the typical teenage troubles:

"They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.  And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear." Isaiah 65:23-24

Prayer to pray today:

Dear Heavenly Father,

You have promised that I will not labor to train my children up right, and have that labor be for nothing. I recognize that I am far from perfect, as a parent. I acknowledge my many sins and mistakes. But, I ask You to cleanse me of these things and to count me - today - among those who are the "blessed of You". You have promised that my seed will not be brought forth for trouble, but that the blessing You have graciously extended over my life will also be given to my children. Please grant me this promise today, on behalf of ______________ (name your children). In my Saviour's Name I ask it, Amen.
