Australia Ministry Trip (Sept 26-November 10, 2017)

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 4

Warfare for Parents - Prayers for your Teenager 

- Isaiah 66:22

Do you often notice your teenager(s) making decisions which reveal self-centered (instead of Christ-centered) values? Do your teens lack spiritual interest? Are they failing to spend time with God to develop a real relationship with Him? Maybe your teen is far more interested in finding a boy or girl friend than getting to know God. Maybe your teen wants to get his/her personal "list" accomplished and is more focused on that than on developing a real relationship with God... If so, you may worry that maybe your teen doesn't have a personal interest in Eternal Life.

If these concerns have crossed your mind, you can stand in the gap for your teenager today. Remember:

"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   

God Promises to preserve your name and the lives of your descendants, so that your children will be with Him in the New Earth.

"For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before Me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain." Isaiah 66:22

Prayer to pray today:

Dear Heavenly Father,

You have promised to make a new heaven and a new earth. All who dwell in this new, sinless place will have inherited Eternal Life. You said that You would establish my name and my seed to remain in Your Presence forever. I claim this promise now on behalf of _________________ (name your children). Please, Father, do all that Heaven can do to save my children, to give them a heart for You, and to preserve them - not only in this world - but for all Eternity. In Jesus' Name I ask it, Amen.
