Recently a young mum rang me with deep concern in her voice regarding her young 4-year-old son who she felt was vulnerable to abuse from others because of her own struggles with anger in the disciplining of her young boy. The real concern was, had she given permission and opened enemy portals in the spirit realm over her son because of her own anger issue?
In discussion and prayer she was able to be set free of her guilt and concern when she received the truth that “when we confess our sin (falling short of God’s mark) that He is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us of all unrighteousness”.
By the prayer of authority in Jesus Name, parents place protection around their child from any consequences of their past parental failure. “Jesus came to destroy the works of the evil one”, hence we can use His Name to spiritually oversee and protect our children. As we ask God to CLOSE the portals that may have been opened by sin/inheritance, we then declare an open heaven of blessing, favour and destiny over our child’s life! This brings real peace and joy to our parenting, as it did to this mother.
