My wife and I have 4 kids. Younger parents ask us all the time what we consider the most essential principles of parenting. Here they are. Write them down. In order, they’re (1) pray, (2) pray, (3) pray. Whether you have one child or fifteen, the job of raising kids to become godly adults takes more than we as humans can do. Let’s face it—we make too many mistakes. We need the power of God—the Creator of our kids—for wisdom, love, and courage that we so desperately need. Set aside time to pray for your kids today. I’ve never heard parents complaining they prayed too much for their kids, but many wished they’d prayed more.
