Avoiding Alcohol, Drugs, and Other Addictions - Day 23

Praying that our children avoid drugs and alcohol seems like a definite prayer many parents pray. However, I think too often we pray after the fact and Omartian encourages us to begin praying now and continue praying that it will never become an issue. We must pray over our children in the area of addictions from a very early age because the draw of the flesh and the devil's plans are a lot stronger than we would like to think. This means even if we have taught our children what we want them to know, unless they have the power of God they are weak.

If you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. -Romans 8:13

Join me in my daily bible study as I read through The Power of a Praying Parent by Stormie Omartain.
