I need God’s wisdom in parenting my children. I have two daughters ages 10 and 13 and two sons 20 and 23 all living at home with me.soundyaaPrayers: 3085Requests: 12

My children are not as old as your children and I am not sure how much I can offer. Despite that, I believe that I cannot judge my children for their words, thoughts or actions but I would expect them to honour my wishes and respect my Christian values. I would expect them to honour Gods law although I would know we all fall short, I would not tell them what to do but explain that God knows their hearts, deeds and actions and that when we fall short it can put a barrier between us and him. I am not sure if you children are Christian, but I believe it is important never to be ashamed of your Christian beliefs and practices under your own roof. For me my home is where I can worship, learn from God and be myself with God. God lives with you and I believe he wants us to allow our home to be his. I pray that the fruits of the spirit can be in your house hold for each other Galatians 5:22-23.
He knows the heart and path of each of your children and prayer when needed would be a powerful way to help them. I hope there is something here that may be of value to you. God bless your efforts and I pray God strengthen you when you are tired and that you seek him for wisdom and that he would speak into each and every situation that is a challenge for you. In Jesus name. Amen.HelgaPrayers: 78Requests: 2

This is not easy. Very vulnerable ages but God is always with you and He knows every heart of you all and I pray that you are able to treat every child of yours according to the talents given to them. I read a book called “The Gift in you” by Dr Caroline Leaf. Very wise book. I pray for wisdom and understanding every single minute of the day.mitziwinzelerPrayers: 7Requests: 1

Thank you for your advice and prayer. It is difficult to show tough love especially when there is no one to back me up. But then who can be against me if God is on my side! Have a blessed Palm Sunday!mitziwinzelerPrayers: 7Requests: 1

Philippians 4:13: for you today believe YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH HIM WHO GIVES YOU STRENGTH. He has unlimited power and is waiting for you to ask for what you need the most, he will surround you and strengthen you, he will comfort you when you feel tired, he will give you rest, I will now lift you up to his spirit so that when you next pray you will see and feel this.
God bless your path, never forget he is not just your father, he is God that lives with you and you with him. What you are doing shows courage and we your family here will intervene at any time you need so that you would know you can be what you need to be for your children. Take extra time in prayer, in the word and in new worship songs all of this will allow you to complete your daily tasks as a wonderful and bless mother.
God bless you this wonderful Palm Sunday. Your brother Andy in Christ.mitziwinzelerPrayers: 7Requests: 1

Amen to the prayers above! May Jesus seal all the prayers with his blood and may he strengthen you sister Mitzi.
As a child raised with a single parent , I will tell you that indeed God literally becomes the father of your children because he became my father and has never let me down. My mother never knew the Lord while raising us up but she always spoke LIFE into us as her children. She always encouraged us to work hard, always told us that she looked forward to a bright future for us . Matter of fact we as her children led her to Christ 🙂
She never used to attend church but I can remember even at a very early age – 5 years I would go to church with neighbors because God had put that hunger in me and my other siblings.
In your case , I am glad that you are the light in that house. The power of a mother’s prayers is so powerful. So I urge you by the mercy of God to take a hold of that power. You have Jesus and he will provide for you.
Ask God for wisdom and He will give you . Spend time deep in worship and His word and I assure you chains will be broken . Your children will see Christ in you and they will be drawn to you. Always remember , you are NOT alone. Christ is right there besides you. Talk to him and sense his presence.
Be blessed.jtylerk9Prayers: 1512Requests: 7

I am praying for you. I pray that your sons are role models to your girls and that they are contributing to the well being of the family. Do your sons know Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord? I hope they are stepping up to help you.

Thank you for your prayers. My sons have both trusted the Lord for their salvation and are growing in their walk with the Lord. They do love their younger sisters and try to be patient with them and take an interest in their activities which I do appreciate very much. My sons have great potential but anger and pride can be a problem at times which they have seen in their father. Please pray that they will continue to grow and that they will seek God’s will for their lives.
Thank you and God bless you!soundyaaPrayers: 3085Requests: 12
