Episode 57: Praying Scripture over the Children in your Life

If you could ask God to do anything for your family, what would it be?

Jodie Berndt, our guest today, surveyed families on this very question before publishing her first book in 2001. Jodie took the top 20 topics, went to the Word to see what God had to say about them, and shaped the table of contents for [Praying the Scriptures for Your Children](https://jodieberndt.com/jodie-berndt-books/).

When Jodie started praying God’s Word back to Him, she began seeing amazing answers…

Speaking scriptures into and over our kids – it fills them with that sense of value and worth in God’s sight. He loves them for who they are! When the bigger questions come along, they can have that anchor and rootedness to know who they are and whose they are. This will be their greatest defense against the patterns of this world.
