When My Children Act Out in Public

Chad Haygood

The title alone jumps out at you, doesn't it? Well, it jumped out at me (maybe because they act out far too often). Here is what an author of another blog said,

Before I had children, I didn't realize how much I desired and yearned for affirmation from others. God has used my boys as mirrors, reflecting back to me the pride and selfishness I didn't know were hiding in the deepest crevices of my heart. Situations....provide the opportunity for me to recognize, acknowledge, and remove the idols.

7 Things to Pray for Your Children

Chad Haygood

John Bloom serves as the president of Desiring God Ministries. In a blog post posted at Desiring God today, he offers us 7 things that we can pray for our children. Those 7 things are:

1.) That Jesus will call them and no one will hinder them from coming.

2.) That they will respond in faith to Jesus' faithful, persistent call.

3.) That they will experience sanctification through the transforming work of the Holy Spirit and will increasingly desire to fulfill the greatest commandments.
