Perservering in Prayer
Have you ever had the experience of the police showing up at your front door with your teenager? I hope not. But even if you were lucky enough not to ever experience this, I think you can still imagine how the parent would feel. The parent would not be thinking cute, endearing, loving thoughts about this wayward child.
But I don't want you to think like a parent. No. I want you to try to think what the teenager is thinking.
Oh boy........yeah. When you feel least loved, is when you need it the most. Read that sentence again!
The same is true of Prayer. Read Colossians 4:2.
When we don't feel like praying is when we most need to pray. We could ask God to bring us to prayer. The more focused on God we become, the easier it is to talk to Him. Sometimes we do have to push ourselves. Well, what of it? Just do it.
Love your children, that includes teens, and continue praying.
