What Do I Need to “See”?

Leadership / Prayer //

In our children’s and family ministries “imparting information” is important, but it is infinitely most important for us to pray for “eyes to be opened”. In our ministries we “impart” a lot of “information”. We teach Bible lessons, we train volunteers, we encourage parents . . . we “impart” a lot of “information”. But, do we focus on asking God to “open eyes”?

What are some things where we need to have our eyes . . . and the eyes of children, parents and volunteers . . . opened? Consider the following . . .

All or our eyes need to be open so . . . 

  • We are able to “see” and know God!
  • We are able to “see” the things in our lives which keep us from walking with God.
  • We are able to “see” where God is leading in our lives!
In addition, the children in our ministries need their eyes to be open so . . .
  • They are able to “see” and respond to God’s love!
  • They are able to “see” how to grow in their walk with God!
In addition, the parents in our ministries need their eyes to be open so . . .
  • They are able to “see” how to lead and disciple their children
  • They are able to “see” how to make wise decisions as parents
In addition, the volunteers in our ministries need their eyes to be open so . . .
  • They are able to “see” how to connect with the children in their groups/classes
And finally, in addition, I need my eyes open so . . .
  • I am able to “see” each child, parent and volunteer in my ministry and how God wants me to impact their lives!
In what way do you need your “eyes” to be “opened”, so you are able to “see”?
