Trust God & Equip the Parents & Grandparents in Your Church to Do the Same with the Children They Love

As things happen in our world which may leave us, the parents, grandparents and volunteers in our church along with the ones we love feeling worried and/or afraid, it is important, even essential, for us to spend time in prayer and encourage and equip the parents, grandparents and volunteers, so they are able to teach their grandchildren and children to do the same. Trying to respond to the things which are happening outside of trusting God, leaves us - and those in our church and the ones we all love - at risk of becoming angry, worried, afraid. But, as people who talk with and trust God, we are able to experience His peace.

This year my grandchildren started praying through the Psalms with the book - Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Children. I am already seeing the difference it is making in their lives! We are having some incredible conversations about how we are able to trust and obey God and believe He hears and answers our prayers - I could not be happier.

My grandchildren know for sure their grandma and grandpa love them. They know we talk with God and love God. They know we believe God is real and the Bible is true. It is important for them to know these things. But, it is more important for them to know these things for themselves. They need to learn to talk with God, they need to trust God, they need to believe God is real and the Bible is true. We need to help the parents/grandparents in our ministry, so they are able to do these things with the ones they love and this book is a great tool to help them equip the ones they love to know, love and walk with God on their own!

When they know, love and walk with God on their own, they will be able to face whatever the future brings with confidence and trust in God. What more could we want?
