Blessings of Praying Children
So what's the blessing in that? Well, in the midst of that turmoil, my children one by one prayed for me. They prayed "Lord, heal mommy, in Jesus' name, Amen." Their prayer was so simple yet made me feel so blessed and loved.
I guess it is really very important to teach our kids to pray. It will build their faith in God and trust in Him. It will teach them to call on the Lord when they need help instead of worrying or being afraid. Plus, in reality, it is us, parents, who will be the first ones who will reap the fruits of their prayers. Their prayers worked. I am now well and good. Thanks be to God!
