Praying For Your Children

Adrian Rogers

If you ask God to give you a child, and He does, then your prayers must follow that child. Do you know why so many prayers are unanswered? People say, “Well, I pray for my child and God just doesn’t seem to hear my prayer for my child.”

Well, let me ask you a question. What are you praying? Are you asking God for them to enjoy good health? Have great success? Gain popularity? I wonder how many of you reading this are parents who pray that God will send your child wherever He wants them to go in order to fulfill the Great Commission. There are many people who feel it would be a tragedy if God were to make a missionary out of their child.

I can remember people talking to my parents and trying to encourage them to encourage me not to go into the ministry because they said it would be a waste. How many of you are praying, “God, make my son important. Make my daughter famous.”

Do you know what my desire is for my children? My dear wife, Joyce, joins me in this desire and prayer for our children which is found in 3 John 4: “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”
