Community of Family

Tribe by C Calk

When raising kids, it takes a tribe of love, support, and encouragement to get through the milestones of parenting. Come together with someone close to you in your community who also has children.

Celebrate the joyful moments and know they are a gift from The Lord. Also, do not neglect to pray for each other when times are difficult.

“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25

“Let each of you look not only to his own interests but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:4

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” Galatians 5:22

Be a warrior on your child’s behalf, fight for them!

God hears your prayers and he has not stopped working in the heart of your (prodical) wayward child. Be a warrior on your child’s behalf. You are working with the strength of Jesus within you. Pour in the truth of God’s word with love. As a praying parent, your job is not fighting with them, it’s fighting for them! In Jesus name, you are given provision and authority under heaven to go after your child and snatch them from the grips of the enemy. They are loved by you and have freedom in the name of Jesus who is love and our redeeming savior!

“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.” Psalms 127:3-5

“Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love.” Micah 7:18

“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4 

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. Ephesians 5

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

“But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have more than enough bread, but I perish here with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants.’ And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.”  Luke 15:17-20 

“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
