Praying Parents

May 13, 2018 Speaker: Joel Sutton Series: Family Matters

Scripture: Matthew 15:21–28

Praying Parents

Matthew 15:21-28



Barriers for the Canaanite woman:


  • Jesus ignores her.


  • Jesus excludes her.


  • Jesus embarrasses her.



Parent Prayers:


“Lord, change me.”


“Lord, my child is yours.”


“Lord, work in my child’s heart.”


“Lord, I am going to trust you.”




Take Home Idea: Parents, when we pray for our children with a faith that persistently and desperately seeks God’s mercy, we move God’s heart.
