As parents, we need God’s divine guidance over our children.
We cannot do it all alone.
As a result, we need God’s omnipresent powers to direct our kids.
Our children’s character can easily be influenced by their companions.
And when they repeatedly flout our directives, it can be truly painful.
But we must be patient with them.

My God will supply your needs and heal your imperfections In the name of Jesus.
