There is a long standing Jewish tradition of praying blessings over God's people. The blessing wasn't a promise of a perfect life but a reminder that a perfect God was on their side.

Key Points:

  • We should pray blessings over our kids. They need to know how important they are to us and that we care about their future.
  • The daily ritual is meaningful. Your kids need the prayers, and this positive habit will provide them comfort and stability.
  • It’s not a promise for a perfect life. Praying daily isn’t a guarantee that everything will always be peachy, but it is a reminder that God is with us in all things.

Quote This:

Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
