Are children too young to be powerful pray-ers?
I have heard it said, "There is no junior Holy Spirit." The same Holy Spirit that rose Jesus from the grave is the same Holy Spirit that lives in each one of His children, old and young.
Here are a few of examples of miracles from the prayers of children.
For at least 28 years I had known that I was sensitive to citrus fruits like lemons, oranges and limes. Whenever I ate them, I would wake up the next morning with a horrible headache. It was a migraine headache and it would make me very sick. So, of course, I avoided them as much as possible.
My grandchildren knew that I was sensitive to them and started praying for me to be healed. My granddaughter was 5 years old at the time and my grandson was 8. I was touched that they had prayed for me. I said out loud, “I accept that healing prayer! If God wants to heal me, bring it on!”
They had faith enough to begin asking if I had eaten any oranges or lemons yet. It took me a little while longer to have faith to even try. But, eventually, through God's mercy and children's faith, I was totally healed!
A spring storm was raging outside. In the mid-west, there can be threats of tornadoes along with torrents of rain, thunder and lightning. Sometimes, winds can be so strong that they blow trees over.
Seven year old Connor was watching the storm outside. The news showed destructive winds and possible tornadoes headed our way. The tornado sirens sounded and we prepared to go to the basement. Connor shouted, "We should pray!" He prayed for the winds to die down and go around us. As we waited in the basement, the news showed the high winds split down the middle and totally miss us. Though there were small tree limbs blown down around us, our community was safe.
