Pray For Your Kids
Later on, in an interview with CBN’s Faithwire, Candace urges parents to pray for their children.
“Pray, pray, pray for your children every day of their lives,” she said. Then the actress stressed how parents should be the greatest example their children could ever see. Because more than what children hear, they observe.
“Just as importantly, walk the talk yourself! You are your children’s biggest and brightest example,” she added.
Candace further explained the importance of kids seeing how their parents respond to the ups and downs of life.
“How you handle the hardships in attitude and character by praying, submitting to God,” she said. “And honoring the Lord in your decisions speaks volumes to your kids. Even if you don’t think they see it at the time. Be the example you wanted to have growing up. God is faithful, even when you aren’t.”
The author also highlighted to “Read the Bible. And read the Bible to your children.” Because according to research, “Bible engagement” becomes an essential foundation for a child when he becomes an adult.
Indeed, God’s Word was right as Proverbs 22:6 also said, “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”
