Proverbs 22:6

6 Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

I would like to ask for prayers for both of my grown (adult children)
They are both in the middle of some not so good times. I have to trust in this scripture .

Our babies may grow up, but a mother's heart never changes. Your love and concern are so evident here. A good scripture to cling to. Lay your worries at the foot of the cross, Ginger. I am praying with you and standing firm in God's promises for your children.

you got it!

Ginger, We can always rest assured that when we pray and stand firm on a scripture such as this one in Proverbs, that there are things happening behind the scenes..... things you can't see in the natural. God is working to perform his Word in their lives. As Mothers, it's hard to even express how much we love our children....and think....God loves them even more than we do! That's hard to even wrap our minds around, but He does. Be encouraged...your children are blessed and you can be sure He's watching over them. Someday before very long you'll see with your natural eyes what you can already see in your spirit.

I'll be praying, Ginger. God is faithful--and He loves your children even more desperately than you do. That thought always comforts me. I hope you'll be encouraged today, too.

Lifting your children (and you) up in prayer.

I do pray for them, Ginger. I will continue to pray.
Your blog is so Christmasy. Love it.
Prayers and Blessings,

Charlotte and I do pray for your children. There are many Scriptures you need to cling to regarding loved ones. The passage in Proverbs can be trusted by those parents who truly DID raise up their children in the way they should go. Those who didn't need to repent and pray and God will hear and answer their prayers. Prayer changes things!

My children are all grown too but they will always be my babies! I have one who is causing me much grief right now but I have to believe that God will get his attention and bring him back to Himself. I will be praying for you and your children. Prayer does indeed change things!

Christmas blessings,

Joining you in prayer and resting with you on the promises of God in the Bible!!!

Hi Ginger,

These words are so heartfelt; fueled by a mother's love and desire. As a father, I continue to learn to trust God with the lives of my children. Although I trust Him with their lives, I will continue to intercede on their behalf. I am learning the truth behind the words, "He must increase, but I must decrease."

May God's grace lead your children to the throne of mercy.

Blessings and peace.

Ginger, prayers are lifting for you & the children. We as parents teach our children better than they behave or select to conduct their selves, sometimes. I know this too well, hearts can break ... but never give up hope. I truly believe that one day my two will find their way back to both God & us ... until they, prayers for them continue. I believe in Him & thru Him ... & ask St. Jude to intercede.

Have a lovely winters eve ~

The beautiful expression of a mother's cry for prayer has so touched me. I will be joining the chorus of prayers sent up in behalf of your loved ones. Rest in Him, sweet friend.

Dear Ginger,

In agreement with you dear friend.

Your lovely blog is certainly full of Christmas cheer, so pretty!

Late, but never too late...I'll be praying, too!
I quote this scripture regularly to myself.
I lay my cares for Chickie in His arms daily.
I remember His faithfulness through the years.
God bless you and yours.
