Prayer - Don’t Become Discouraged

Isaiah 49:25 But thus says the Lord: Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your children.

Many parents are having difficulties with their children, and feel there is nothing they can do to cause them to turn around.  Some have tried to lead them to the Lord, but have found the division between each has increased.  The above verse gives you a promise from God, who wants to fulfill it in the lives of your children.  

Go to the Lord for wisdom and guidance, asking Him what part He wants you to play.  As you depend upon Him, instead of your own strength, a change will take place in your children.  He is not wanting any of your children to be lost, so keep on praying for them, expecting God to honor His Word.  Don’t become discouraged if you don’t see immediate answers to your prayers.
