Many parents try to provide for their kids in as many ways as they can. While providing for the material needs of our children is necessary, some might go to extremes in providing for material needs and completely neglect spiritual needs.
In a culture that is attracted to material excess, prayer is a resource that parents would be wise not to neglect. We must keep our eyes focused on God, not comfort and status symbols.
How Prayer Is a Resource That Many Parents Neglect
Moms and dads will go to extreme lengths in order to make their children feel comfortable, satisfied, and happy. Parents supply their kids with houses to live in, the nicest cars that they can afford, and clothing that matches up with the latest styles. Even though so many parents work hard to get their children everything they might need, they still often neglect one thing. This one thing can surpass other actions that parents can take and provide things that millions and millions of dollars could not buy.
All it costs to use this resource is a little bit of time. This resource is prayer. Do you spend anywhere near the amount of time and energy praying for the wellbeing of your children as you do working to buy them the newest video game console or the trendiest pair of shoes? Remember, surrounding your kids with prayer can do more to lead to their long-term happiness and satisfaction than any of these earthly possessions.
