“Read the Bible” by Dr. Jené Walker

Maybe this doesn’t apply to you, but it did to me – for a long time. I thank Jehovah for grace.

“We read everything to our children except the Bible. Sometimes we are busy saving the world and others and neglect to minister to our own children. Some of us pray but don’t read the Word. Some of us think it is enough to tell our children about Jesus. We spend what we consider quality time with them, but if we aren’t teaching the principles of the Word, there is no quality. We do movies and dinner and skating and sleepovers and cookouts and bank trips. They are with us everywhere we go. But are we explicitly reading the Word of God aloud to them? Begin now. Here is a regimen we can use:
1. Pray aloud.
2. Read a Bible passage aloud.
3. Discuss the meaning of the passage from both perspectives.
4. Speak confessions, declarations, and renunciations of specific evil spirits aloud.
5. Pray aloud again.
We take the time to do everything else. Do this. Our children’s lives depend on it. For our children to get the Word from church or overhearing adult conversations isn’t enough. It isn’t too late.”

“Lay Holy Hands on Your Child(ren)!” by Dr.J.

Did you lay holy hands on your child(ren) this morning? When they leave the safety and protection of our home, we send them out into a world of darkness. Dark systems. Dark situations. Dark people. Did you pray a strategic prayer of protection? Favor? Spiritual awareness? Even your youngest needs to understand that there is spiritual activity. 

Don’t let them leave your sight without your holy hands upon them. The enemy wants to take our children out. He can’t have them! Dr.J. 

“You Get First Dibs” by Dr.J.

“Mama I should come to you more often [for spiritual counseling]. “Son any time- you have first dibs!”

Parents, your children are listening and watching! God gifted us with experience and spiritual wisdom! That’s a perfect and powerful combination for our children to “come to us more often.” I don’t give him any advice that doesn’t come from the Word. I put it on a hip palatable plate and serve it up. Do not let the enemy lie to you about your gift to relate to your child. Use the unadulterated truth (B I B L E) in relatable ways. Even if they depart from truth (B I B L E), they will come back to truth (B I B L E). I declare and decree the release of strongholds and barriers in our children’s lives in Jesus’s name. My son is my best friend. Dr.J.

“Go to War” by Dr.J.

When was the last time you went to war for your child? Oh I don’t mean a flesh war because the weapons of our warfare are not carnal. I mean spiritual war. Lay hands, pray aloud, speak confessions aloud (God’s word adding your child’s name), Bible study…Do your own words line up with the Word of God about your children? 
Do we receive everything we hear and see about our children? What the teachers say, doctors say, counselors say, psychiatrists say, people say, streets say, behaviors say, attitudes say, hairstyles say? What does God say about your child? Protect your ear gates and your child’s ear gates. We can afford to step up our war game for our children…we can’t afford not to. Satan is coming hard for them in the spiritual and natural realm. This may require us checking our own mouth gates.  It’s time to go to war for our children. The war may begin internally with you. Dr.J.
