Watching Parents Pray by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/16/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Moms, you can’t imagine how important it is for your children to know that you spend time with the Lord.

“I remember the mornings, even now. I would wake up to hear someone weeping in our front room. I would walk in and find my mother on her knees, praying.”

Nancy: For them to know that when you wake them up, you’ve already prayed for them.

“Chills would just go through me, and I would start crying.”

Nancy: Even now, whenever I’m tempted to skip my time with the Lord, I have the image of a mom and dad who spent time with God first thing in the morning.

“How comforting it was to hear her and see her there—just her and her God. I will always hide that in my mind.”

Nancy: Your children know that the words of Isaiah 50:4 are true for you: “He wakens me morning by morning, wakens me like one being taught.”

“Watching her through my childhood, I have learned to make my own prayer time with just me and God. I love you, Mom. Thank you so very much.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
