She wonders what in the world she’s even doing. Her baby is one. She can’t possibly understand, can she? She knows there has to be others doing this, but she can’t see them.

All she knows is that the prayers going forth are from the Word of God. The Word is seed. The Word doesn’t come back void. So, day in and day out she is planting. Her faith wobbles along the way. Her daughter only says a few words. “Bible” is one of them, though she seems more fond of ripping those than anything else. Yet, she has enough faith to keep whispering in her daughter’s ear.

Some of you who are older than I am probably have a better grasp on the concept of generational inheritance, but for my generation and those younger than me, by and large we are completely clueless. In this age of instant gratification, where everything revolves around the kingdom of self and people exist to serve the ever demanding me, we have completely lost sight of what it means to build a foundation that will last throughout generations. Even for those of us who strive against the current of the culture, it is so difficult to think in terms of inheritance and legacy, unless we’re talking about our inheritance and the legacy that’s passed down to us.

Prayer Walls – What to pray for
Image is not available

“I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it…” Ezekiel 22:30

I read this verse when my firstborn was two and it stirred my heart. God was looking for something. He wanted someone to build a wall. So, I stood there with two children two and under, up to my knees in dirty diapers and laundry, runny noses and dishes and said, “Here we are. We will build a wall.”

And we did.
