Lincoln said “Sometimes I am driven to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I have no place else to go.” As parents, we often feel this same feeling. Parenting is hard, children are complicated, the world is dangerous and confusing, particularly in this pandemic–and we are driven to our knees because we have nowhere else to go. This can be a good thing because an earthly parent praying to a Heavenly Parent about a child that they share can create some of the most fervent, effectual prayers ever uttered. It can generate answers that we would never find anywhere else.
On the latest edition of the Eyres on the Road podcast, Richard and Linda talk about parental prayer and how we can all make it a more important part of our lives.
