A prayer for my children: World Changers

Those who have reverence for the Lord will learn from him the path they should follow. They will always be prosperous, and their children will possess the land. (Psalm 25:12, 13 GNT)

Lord, I pray that CHLOE & ALLIE will "inherit the land," that he/she will be a person of influence in this world. I believe that through my child You will mold and shape the values of his/her generation in a positive and powerful way. I also confess that CHLOE & ALLIE  will inherit the land in a literal sense, ruling and reigning with You in the kingdom of God to come, forever and ever. In the name of Jesus, amen (let it be so)!

World Changers

"Psalm 25:12-13 is evidently referring to more than just acquiring real estate. On a higher level, "inheriting the land," speaks of having prominence and influence in order to transform individuals or society as a whole with the values and character of God's kingdom. This can happen for believers' offspring on a local or global level; they can "inherit" everything from neighborhoods to nations. (See Psalm 2:8; Isaiah 54:3.) 
A good example is Martin Luther King Jr. Not only were his parents strong Christians, but also both his father and grandfather were preachers. When Martin was around the age of seventeen, the "ministry mantle" passed to him. Though he never held a political office or owned large masses of real estate, Martin Luther King Jr. "inherited the land" in a more profound way. As he selflessly began promoting racial equality in Alabama, God began promoting him to a place of international prominence. If you have surrendered your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, expect Him to awaken in your son or daughter a similar potential of being a world changer and a history maker."
