If there is anything that will intensify my seeking after God, it is the consideration of my children, my grandchildren and my great-grandchildren. My love for them is so intense that when I ponder the world in which they are maturing, and in which they will function, and now function, I understand the implicit need for God to direct and guide my family; the mothers and fathers and the little children. Read with me as Ezra addresses the issue:
“Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance.” 8:21
Help us God in these perilous days, to seek diligently after You. Our little ones are depending on us to protect them and to guide them in the ways of righteousness–to lead them to safety.
