(PART 1)

Raising godly children does not occur by chance. Christian parents must be diligent to plant their children in the Word and ways of God.


READ: Ps. 144:12; Prov. 22:6; Is. 28:9-10; Eph. 6:1-4; Col. 2:8; 1 Tim. 6:20-21.
HEART ISSUE: Are you diligently establishing your children (biological or spiritual) in the ways and Word of God?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, give me Your heart as a parent and discipler that I may passionately pursue the well-being of those You entrust to my leadership. Amen.

(PART 2)

Satan works through secular media to subtly ensnare our children, even while they are very young. Parents must protect their children and teach them how to discern evil.


READ: Deut. 6:1-9; Ps. 101:1-3; Prov. 19:27; Rom. 16:17-20; 1 Tim. 4:6-12; Titus 2:3-8.
HEART ISSUE: Are you monitoring your children's media appetite? How are you teaching them to discern hidden messages of evil around them?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, forgive me for the times I allowed secular media to babysit my children for the sake of convenience. Show me how to intervene and protect them. Amen.
