Praying Scriptures for Your Children with Jodie Berndt
What can be more overwhelming than parenting? Not much! But thankfully we have one tool we can use for every parenting situation, and that’s prayer.
“There is nothing we face as a parent that God has not already thought of, and provided for, in His Word,” writes Jodie Berndt, author of Praying Scriptures for Your Kids. Jodie’s been praying for her kids and encouraging others to do the same for decades.
Why should we pray?
-Prayer can free us from worry and fear in our parenting.
-Praying for our kids can also take some of the stress out of our parenting.
Jodie and I also talk about why it’s important to pray for our adult kids, even when they’re out of our homes. I know you’ll be encouraged by this podcast!
