So for the past 2 weeks I've been reading a devotional about praying the scriptures over your children. Let me tell you how eye-opening this has been for me! You see I've always prayed basic prayers for my son (God please keep Mekhail always under your watchful eye) but never have I used scripture to back it up. •
Now that got me to thinking about how a lot of us are where we are because we had a praying mother or grandmother. In my case, it was my mother. I am so glad that like Jesus, she never gave up on me when I was in the world. Those heartfelt 3 am prayers with tears in her eyes is what kept me and brought me back to God. You see, the one prayer that always stays with me is Proverbs 22:6 GNTD "Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their life." •
So ladies, start praying scriptures over your children and cover them every day with the blood of Christ. Pray for them like their life depends on it.
• • Heavenly Father, I pray that the eyes of ____________’s heart may be enlightened in order that ____________ may know the hope to which God has called him, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people, and His incomparably great power for ____________ who believes. (Ephesians 1:18-19) • Now to Him who is able to keep ____________ from stumbling, and to make ____________ stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. (Jude 24-25)

An overwhelming day where my reality and faith is being tested to the max. And yet, here we are. STILL. WHERE will this go? To be continued....
📖 Psalm 46 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Certain debates in the Church consume far more time, effort, and attention than they should. I believe the age of the earth is one of those debates.
For the better part of a hundred and fifty years, Christians have been arguing over exactly how old the world is. While a traditional understanding says that creation is roughly 6000 years old, many in the scientific community argue that the earth has been around for least 4.5 billion years.
In the ensuing debate, young earth theorists say that old earth theorists are anti-bible. And old earth theorists say that young earth theorists are anti-science. And everybody sells tons of books and tickets to conferences.
But what if this question isn’t as life-threatening as we think it is?
The Christian faith can survive and thrive regardless of how old the earth is. This topic is definitely worth discussing and debating. But it should never become a dividing line like it has in so many Christian circles.
Here are 5 reasons why Christians need to stop arguing over the age of the earth as though the faith depends upon it.
