Welcome, I want to share with you today about children. Children are a blessing from the Lord, but as we know, not everybody agrees with that.
There is so much that goes on around the world that we don’t understand, or even know about that children go through every day.
We hear about kidnappings, kids missing, abused, hungry, living in conditions that are not for humans. Our heart’s cry out for them.
We pray God help the hurting, feed the hungry, heal the abused and bring help to all that are in need.
We have to stand in the gap for the children. Praying and interceding for them wherever they maybe at in the world.
No matter what we may be going through in the world, we always have a choice to choose to put others ahead of us.
When you think about it, what your sacrificing is nothing compared to what the child you’re praying for is going through.
Think about it like this, what if you’re praying for that child’s future and your prayer stops something bad from happening or you’re praying makes something wonderful happen for that blessed child.
Keep Believing**Fight in Faith
When I was a little girl, my mother went through a lot of things and she moved around with me and my siblings to a lot of places.
We saw things children shouldn’t see. Our Aunt’s and Uncles would come and pick us up and bring us back to what we really called home.
Our Great Aunt Nora’s House, she was amazing, always their for us every time we needed her.
All of our Aunt’s and Uncles were, don’t know what we would have done without them. They help my mom also, just overall took care of all us. We were blessed to have family that cared enough to always be their.
We ended up staying with my Aunt Nora for good on one of the trips they came and got us, finally could go to school at one place, Not worrying about each other.
Aunt Nora taught me so much. Just listening and watching her and talking to her about everything. I loved to hear her tell of her childhood and all of her brother and sisters.
She gave the best hugs and always told me she loved me!
Walking in the Word
Like I said Aunt Nora taught me, she taught me by example, not just by words only.
I would see her every morning reading the Word of God and every night reading the Word of God
She would talk about it with us and explain anything we didn’t understand.
As she got older, she would always have the Bible in her lap, reading it.
I remember asking her why she read so much and she said, because I Love my daddy God and I want to learn his Word and put it in my heart.
She read through the whole Bible once every year.
I Loved her so much! The biggest memory I have is of her praying, she always prayed especially at night.
Every night she would call out each one of our family members names.
That’s a lot of them at that time, and prayed for their salvation, healing, deliverance. Whatever they needed or she thought they needed she prayed for.
Aunt Nora taught me to pray then by her example. She didn’t stop praying till she felt she touched the Heavens. After she passed in 1991,
I saw some of her prayers answered that she had prayed when I was a little girl.
So never give up Praying, you never know when that prayer will be answered. We don’t have to see it, we just have to be obident and Listen and Pray.
When I got married in 1989, my Aunt Nora was their with me. I will cherish that forever.
She had prayed for me and my future husband since I was a young girl and she was Blessed to be a huge part of our life.
When we had our first child in 1994, I remembered everything that Aunt Nora taught me and was determined to live it in front of my child.
We had 2 more wonderful Children in 1999 an 2002. They have never missed a day being told I love you and have been taught the Word of God.
Everyday of their life and on their school-days we pray before they leave for the day. God’s Protection and Blessing’s over them and All at school. I want them to learn what I did as a child.
Keep God First, Listen to Him, Obey His Word, and He will Keep You Always!
If we will keep on keeping on for the children, like my Aunt did, by the way, she was a widower who never had any children of her own but raised and help raise 7 children. (Her & Troy her husband) I Loved them so very much!!!
If we all had hearts as big as there’s every child would be covered in Prayer in the World and have a Home.
May every child be covered in prayer and love and surround by peace that comes only from above.
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy Kingdom come, thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
