Teen Times

Today teens face an immense battle. Daily, they face foul language, promiscuity, alcohol, drugs, pressure to perform academically and in sports, and the constant agenda to undermine their belief in a loving God.

Our teens need stability, nurturing, and parents willing to fight the battle to protect them. What does this look like?

As parents we need to pray for our teenagers. There is a spiritual battle going on between good and evil, between Satan and God. We must go to battle for them using our weapon of prayer. God’s Word says we can demolish strongholds through the power of the Holy Spirit in us when we have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

We also should know where our children are at, who they are spending time with, and what they are doing. This can be difficult as a parent. Our teens get angry when we pry and follow-up on them. Oh well, they can be mad at us for caring, but at least they’ll know that we care.

When we do the battle we demonstrate love. Is it hard? Yes. It’s extremely tough to constantly be aware of what our teens are doing, know who their friends are, and spend time in daily prayer, but it’s worth the battle to save our children from destruction.
