Parenting in Grace and Faith

Happy Mother’s Day 5/14/23


JUST AS Eph 2:8 tells us that by HIS GRACE we are saved (delivered) through faith, WE PARENT by His Grace and are delivered through faith


We cannot afford to let our “parenting regrets” override HIS GRACE in our minds , or we WILL NOT be able to operate in FAITH concerning our children

His grace is greater than our mistakes

Accept His Grace and let HIM put His INFLUENCE INTO the situation

Do not underestimate the power of GOD’S GRACE in your parenting STORY

PRAY over your situation, YOUR CHILDREN….NOT IN FEAR, not our of regret BUT IN FAITH

THE PRAYER of FAITH is the way we take our FEARS off of our children and place THEM in the hands of God

           FEAR based parenting is not beneficial to our kids

           REGRET based parenting is not beneficial to our kids

FEAR is transferrable by WORDS, but so is FAITH

Romans 10:17 Faith comes by hearing.



You do not water the Word with worry or negative words, you water it with praise and you rest in faith expecting a harvest/change

Do not let fear in during the process of time

*Father I thank you for the children you have blessed me with. They hunger and thirst after righteousness. They seek you and find you. They love you with their whole heart, mind and soul. Anything that tries to come between you is removed from their lives. I have taught them of you and your ways and they will never depart from it. My children bring me joy and not sorrow. They rise up and call me blessed. I have lent them to you for your service- they have found their place in you. You have placed Godly friendships and relationships in their life-they desire none else. Your Holy Spirit resides on the inside of them, working constantly on their behalf-showing them things, warning them and leading them in the path of righteousness. Satan cannot in anyway have my children-they have been yours since the day of conception-they will never serve another. I have taught them of you therefore they have great peace. You have created in them a clean heart-set apart for your service. I will not fear. I will not be moved by what I see. I put my trust in you. I rest now in your Words to me concerning my children and I consider it done from this day forward-I will not pick up this care again-But I will praise you for what you are doing in their lives and what they are doing for you. The end result is what you have promised.
