40 Days of Prayer to Change America
Day 5: Family
"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it."
The enemy's attack on the family unit is anything but subtle these days. From legalized abortion to redefining marriage, to high divorce rates, to Internet porn addiction, satan has successfully assaulted the family from all angles with an overt agenda to pull it apart and even negate its value. To combat these attacks, families must put Christ above ALL things and make Him a solid foundation. And no weapon is stronger in this war than prayer.
- Pray that parents will adhere to Proverbs 22:6 and train their children in the ways of the Lord.
- Pray that families won't succumb to the worldly ideals coming from Hollywood but instead, stay true to Biblical principles of living.

Almighty God, please guide parents to bring their children to You. Encourage them to have daily and nightly family prayer time. Remind the parents that it is You who blessed them with their children. Give them wisdom so they may know that it is only when You are in their lives and the lives of their children that they will forever be protected and well cared for. In Jesus' All Mighty Name. Amen.
