Praying for Your Teens

Three tips for praying specifically for teens #prayer #parenting #teens

Teens.

{Did your heart just stop for a second?}

I currently have four teens, three kids that have already gotten through the teen years and a couple pulling up the rear.

I know teens.

It’s such a hard time in life.  You’re not a child.  You’re not an adult.  You feel ready to move on with life, but you’re stuck in ways that feel so frustrating.  I get it.  Even though I was a teen when there were still covered wagons, I do remember what it feels like.

As a mom, I know that prayer is the best way for me to help my teens as they find their path to living life on their own.  It’s a time for me to let go of some of my control and trust God.  That doesn’t mean problems won’t happen; it means you will have a source of strength and wisdom when they do.
