Children growing up void of God’s Truth and love!!!
(Psalms 127:3; Matthew 19:14; Psalms 34:11)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, help me to be a person of TRUTH. I know that satan is the father of lies and You are the father of TRUTH. Help me each day to be truthful in my speech, and bold in proclaiming YOUR TRUTH to those You bring into my life each day. I ask this in the name of Jesus...AMEN!
Back in the mid '60s when I was in elementary school, I distinctly remember that only a very few kids in my class didn't go to church on Sunday. Well over 90% of my class went to church. Sadly, just 50 years later it is completely the opposite, with well over 90% of children in public school NOT going to church and growing up in homes void of God. We now have the better percentage of two full generations that do not go to church and that live their lives void of God. One of the ways to see that change is by reaching the children with the Truth of God's Word and the hope and love of Jesus Christ.
The reality is satan has infiltrated the schools with his lies. Lies that your child is gay or really isn’t they gender they were born as. Lies that we evolved from pond scum. Lies that there is no God. Lies that there is no absolute right and wrong. Satan is a liar, the father of lies (John 8:44), and he has done a masterful job at telling his lies to YOUR CHILDREN from the moment they step into school, and reinforcing those lies 24/7 through every cultural vehicle possible.
Sadly, most children going to a public school are having their thoughts and beliefs shaped by ungodly teachers for apx. 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. The vast majority of their friends and peers they interact with many hours a day don’t go to church. With most kids today also growing up in homes void of God, they are RARELY being exposed to God’s Truth at all.
Liveprayer is an instrument of God to bring His Truth to the masses. We have been doing that daily for 20 years here on the Internet, and 15 years on TV. The fact is that over these past 50 years, satan has erected huge walls around the public schools of this nation. Prayer has been removed and so has Bible teaching. Now the existence of God is mocked, tortured, and impossible theories of how we came to exist are being taught as fact, right and wrong are what you decide they are, and perverted lifestyles are being presented as normal and acceptable.
Like the walls of Jericho, these are huge, solid walls that look impossible to tear down. Like the walls of Jericho, God is able to bring them down!!!
This is critical, since reaching the children for Christ is a major component to seeing this nation turn back to God and Biblical principles. Satan is not shy about going after the children, so why are the people of God? Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through those promoting the homosexual lifestyle. Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through the cults that openly proselytize in schools. Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through the school curriculum that is in direct opposition to God and the Truth. Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through exposing them to every type of evil and perversion known to man.
If satan is so bold in going after the souls of YOUR CHILDREN, why should the people of God be any less bold in bringing His Truth into the hearts and minds of those same children???
My friend, now is the time to go to war for the hearts, minds, and souls of our children. We have sat back long enough. There is no more time for playing games. While we have been busy building buildings, preaching to ourselves, and enjoying the peace and prosperity of living in this great country, the enemy has been busy these past 50 years insuring that he could control the hearts and minds of the children. Most children are not being raised in homes that honor God or His Son Jesus, and we have simply left them to the enemy.
NO MORE! It is time to go fight for the souls of these children!
I love you and care about you so much. God's way is for the children to learn the Scriptures and to be nurtured in the faith at home. With so many parents who have rejected Christ and His Truth, that of course is not happening. Please be in prayer and seek the Lord how you can not only lay that foundation of faith in your children, but how you might be used to bring that same truth into the hearts and lives of their friends and other children in your neighborhood or those you might interact with through the course of your daily lives.
I will continue to pray for you moms and dads out there. Over and over I have spoken directly to you how critical your job is in raising their children in the admonition of the Lord. Nothing you do in this life will be as important. I want you to know that I am praying for you today as God gives you wisdom, direction, and strength in the raising of your children and helping to lay that foundation of faith in their lives. There is no more evil in the world today than in the past, it is just more visible and much more accessible.
Today more than ever, you need to be diligent in what your children are being exposed to, so that you can insure they know what is right and what is wrong, what is from God and what is designed by satan to harm or even destroy them.
I am committed more than ever to using the increasing reach of Liveprayer to bring His Truth and love to even more people each day. Perhaps no group in this nation is more isolated and blocked from receiving that truth than the kids who go to public schools. I realize that there is nothing anyone can do to stop the lies from being told in the schools, just like there is nothing that can be done to stop the lies being told in the marketplace every day.
Just like Liveprayer aggressively and boldly brings the Truth of God into the marketplace every day, we are determined to find avenues to take His Truth to the children of our day so they have some exposure to the hope and love of Jesus Christ!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
