God Protects the Children of Prayerful Parents ㅡ
“But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.”
We are living in an unfortunate age for children.
A heavy current is setting downward to perdition, and more than childhood’s experience and strength is needed to press against this current and not be borne down by it.
The youth generally seem to be Satan’s captives, and he and his angels are leading them to certain destruction.
Satan and his hosts are warring against the government of God.
Parents, help your children. Arouse from the lethargy which has been upon you.
Watch continually to cut off the current and roll back the weight of evil which Satan is pressing in upon your children.
The children cannot do this of themselves, but parents can do much.
By earnest prayer and living faith great victories will be gained.
Some parents have not realized the responsibilities resting upon them and have neglected the religious education of their children.
In the morning the Christian’s first thoughts should be upon God.
Worldly labor and self-interest should be secondary.
Children should be taught to respect and reverence the hour of prayer.
Come in humility with a heart full of tenderness and with a sense of the temptations and dangers before yourselves and your children; by faith bind them upon the altar, entreating for them the care of the Lord.
Ministering angels will guard children who are thus dedicated to God.
It is the duty of Christian parents, morning and evening, by earnest prayer and persevering faith, to make a hedge about their children.
They should patiently instruct them, kindly and untiringly teach them how to live in order to please God.
(Testimonies for the Church Volume 1 397)
