Are you homeschooling so your kids learn a Christian worldview? You want to protect them in these crucial formative years, and that’s good. But someday (sooner than we’d like), they will face opposition to the Christian beliefs they learned at home. Will your children be ready? That’s where we can help.
Parent Road Ministries designs devotionals, tools, and curriculum to equip families to live for Christ and answer tough questions about biblical teaching. Here are some resources you may find useful.
40 Scriptures to Pray Over Your Children
Eph. 6:18 urges, “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people” (NIV).
40 Scriptures to Pray Over Your Children equips parents and caregivers with practical prayers for their children.
Divided into four sections, these two- to three-minute prayers touch on the four areas of growth highlighted in Luke 2:52 – wisdom, stature, favor with God, and favor with other people. Each prayer uses a different Scripture as its base, praying the words of the passage along with additional requests stemming from the text.
The Answer Book: A Devotional for Busy Families
This book presents seven weeks’ worth of Bible studies for family members to explore together as they seek answers to the questions that arise in striving to live as Christians.
Adults, who sometimes find children challenging them with hard questions about the Christian life, will find The Answer Book enables them to ask those questions as a family, to listen to God’s word, and to discover its answers. Each weekly section addresses a major topic, including the nature of truth, the reasons for spending time with God, the identity of Jesus, and family discipleship. Each daily devotion shares a brief reflection, suggests a Bible reading, presents an “On the Road” challenge to the family, and calls for a “Weapon Check,” in which one memorizes key scriptural passages.
As you spend time around your children, you may wonder what drives them to ask endlessly, “Why?”. The Answer Book: A Devotional for Busy Families gives you a structured – yet flexible – way to turn small blocks of time (like circle time or basket time) into moments for taking seriously their deep and heartfelt questions. By spending some time together as a family with these questions and with the message God reveals in the Scriptures, you will grow together to trust God more fully, to build your lives on a strong foundation, and to be prepared for life’s coming challenges.
The Answer Book: Small-Group Guide
Based on the same seven-week scope and sequence as The Answer Book: A Devotional for Busy Families, this flexible format is written for larger blocks of time. The devotional is written as a daily study where the small-group guide contains weekly lessons. These multi-level units include music suggestions, crafts, and games in addition to a circle time Bible lesson.
