Pray for Biological Parents

with Ron Deal | November 19, 2018

I was speaking on Facebook Live when a stepmom's comment really impressed me. She said, "When my stepdaughter first moved in we made sure we prayed for her mom at bed time. It made a huge difference in my stepdaughter's attitude toward me." Of course it did. Why? Because you reveal your heart when you pray. In this case, the stepmom's good will toward the biological mom showed the daughter she respected the mom and their mother-daughter relationship. To a child, a gracious heart is a safe place.
