HTH: Don’t Give Up Praying for Your Children


In this article, originally published on desiring, father of five Jon Bloom writes about how he has learned to persevere in prayer for his children. His own maturation as a Christian has taught him that he cannot always see God at work: “The more accumulated time I spend in Scripture, the more I read history, and the more I observe as I grow older, the less confidence I place in my perceptions of how things appear at any given point.” As his children have grown, Bloom has learned to rely increasingly on God, and God has proved to be as trustworthy as He says He is.

For any parent who is growing weary waiting for God to answer prayers for their children, Bloom offers a good word of comfort and hope and encouragement.

Hope this helps!
