A Legacy of Prayer


"One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts." Psalm 145:NKJV

On Tuesday I wrote this post about praying for our families. Since then I came across a little book that I consider to be the best book I've ever read for encouragement and direction in a successful prayer ministry for our families and others. It was written by Jennifer Kennedy Dean and is entitled-- Legacy of Prayer, A Spiritual Trust Fund For The Generations.

Most of us want to leave something of value to our children, our grandchildren, our descendants. Would you rather leave a spiritual trust fund or a big monetary one if you had to choose between the two?

We cut down one tree and plant ten more to take its place, we save for their future, we try to be cognizant of the way we use our planet's resources--doing all for their future good--and none of these are bad things, they are all good--but

Are we investing daily in the resources God has provided us for their spiritual future, their spiritual trust fund?

This quote from Jennifer will give you just a hint of the tone of the book.

"Prayer has no limits--no time limits, no geographical limits. Just as surely as we can provide for our children's present and daily needs through prayer, we can also reach into their futures, laying a foundation of blessing for our children, our grandchildren, and all of our descendants.

Prayer is so effective that when our children are away from us, we can continue to parent them through our prayers. Our prayers are more powerful even than our presence."--Jennifer Kennedy Dean

Some things are just too good NOT to share and this is one of those things.

I long to invest in the future of my descendants.
