It is the highest wisdom to pray for our children that while they are young their hearts may be given to the Saviour. –Spurgeon
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
Our children are gifts from God. They have been entrusted to us in order for us to train them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. But at one point or another, our children will push us to our own physical and mental limits. Before this happens we need to hit our knees and ask for the strength from the Lord to give us spiritual help! As we do the Lord will make intercession for us and do a work in their hearts. Now, this intercession may not happen today, tomorrow, or next week but the promises of God still remain. That is something we need to cling to and rejoice in.
