Prayer impacts our children, but it often impacts us in equally powerful ways. God doesn’t want us to fight against our kids, He wants us to fight for them.

Tip #2: Pray in the Moments
Stop in the middle of moments and struggles with our children and pray for them. Prayer doesn’t need to be perfect.
- Set an alarm every hour and pray for a minute.
- Post sticky notes with prayers or verses all over your house.
- Use prayer calendars.
