Praying for Your Anxious Child
Anxiety is at an all time high in our teenagers.
One study found that the number of girls who often felt nervous, worried or fearful jumped by 55 percent over a five-year period. And while anxiety might look different in boys, it is still very much there.
Our children are experiencing an all out war for their peace. An epidemic of anxiety. I don't know all of the reasons it seems so much more prevalent now than it did when I was growing up, but I do know that our children need us to pray for them in this specific, challenging area.
All this month we'll be diving into the topic of anxiety in our children:
Tomorrow (9/5) Sissy Goff will join us to talk about anxiety in girls.
On September 12th, Dr. Gregory Jantz will join us to talk about anxiety in boys.
September 19th Becky Keife will talk to us about building a bridge between parents and anxious children.
And on September 26th, Lauren Gaines will remind us that God put us here, and gave us these children, for such a time as this.
Mark your calendars now for this important season!
Today's show is brought to you by our newest Prayer Guide, Praying God's Word for Your Child's Anxiety, by Becky Keife.
Pray for God to work in your children’s hearts to:
- Learn to recognize anxiety for what it is...
- Keep their eyes on Jesus...
- Find sure footing that withstands the storm...
- Know who they are in Christ...
- Let go of the need to control...
- And gain compassion, understanding, and the ability to find peace for your own heart.
With biblical teaching on anxiety, and scripture-inspired prayers this digital prayer guide is perfect for the busy mom who needs God to move in the hearts of her kids.
She’s a wife of 20+ years and mom to two teenage boys who make their home in the mountains of Appalachia, calling southwestern Virginia home.
