May 6, 2022 – Prayer Reveals Your Priorities
Sermon: 1997 – Magnificent Mother
Pray Over This
“Then she made a vow and said, ‘O Lord of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head.’”
Do you know why so many parents’ prayers are unanswered? People say, “Well, I pray for my child, and God just doesn’t seem to hear my prayer.” Let me ask you a question. What are you praying for your children? What is your desire for your children? Think about it. Are you praying for health? Success? Popularity? Fame?
There are many people who feel it would be a tragedy if God were to make a missionary out of their child. I can remember people talking to my parents, to convince them to discourage me not to go into the ministry because they thought it would be a waste. Many don’t equate ministry with “being something” in the way they hope for their children. How many of you are praying, “God make my son important. Make my daughter famous”? We must regularly examine our priorities.
Take time today in prayer, submitting the children in your life to God. Ask Him to lead them according to His priorities and not your own.
