PRAYERS OF A PARENT 

Tonight before youth group we had our first ever PTA prayer gathering. We thought it would be a great idea to start meeting together with the parents once a month to pray for our youth group and share prayer requests we have for the kids. Being our first one and also with it being Labor Day weekend many parents couldn’t come out but God still showed up.

We began with worship and then went around sharing prayer points we wanted to pray together for. It was great hearing the insight of the parents and seeing their true cares and compassion for not just their kids but the youth group as a whole.

After discussing what we need to pray for we began to pray together with our voices. I couldn’t help but take a step back and listen to these parents hearts crying out to God. Lifting everything to Him with a hunger and desperation.

I was able to witness first hand how amazing parents of faith are. To see their genuine care and love for the kids, all of the kids like they are their own. I believe through them I got a glimpse of God the Father. Seeing their hearts for the kids put in perspective how much more our Father God loves us. Just like these parents were crying out for their children I believe God does that times a hundred for us.

I saw God today.

Did you?
