感恩节:不要忘了为孩子感恩和祷告!

感恩节(英语:Thanksgiving Day,法语:Jour de l’Action de grâce),是美国加拿大的全国节日,为感谢清教徒的上帝赐予一年一度丰收的祝福。

 

我们需要感恩上帝所赐予的一切,生命气息,阳光,雨水,空气等等。我们感恩父母对于子女的养育和教导之恩,也感恩我们生命中出现的每一个人,相信那都不是出于偶然。圣经教导我们凡事谢恩,甚至为了困难和苦难感恩,殊不知苦难是化了妆的祝福,是上帝把偏离正道的儿女引回正道,和不认识他的儿女带回家的方式之一。 

感恩节感恩之一就是感谢上帝赐给我们健康聪明的孩子,他们是上帝赐给我们的产业,做父母的要履行称职管家的职责,不然将来如何向神交差?其实说来惭愧,这些年来自己在这方面做得并不是很好,但感谢主的一路保守,孩子们倒也中规中矩,相信这也是从小把他们带到教会的好处之一。但随着儿子开始初中,两个女儿渐渐长大,我们觉得肩上的重担不轻,也越来越认识到我们自己能力有限,唯有通过不停的祷告把他们完全的仰望交托在神的手中才是最有把握的事情。就像圣经诗篇中说的:若不是耶和华建造房屋,建造的人就枉然劳力。若不是耶和华看守城池,看守的人就枉然儆醒。感谢神,不久前我们开始每天为孩子不同方面来祷告,由于孩子们的中文水平实在有限,所以今天把中文祷告词(网上找来的)翻译成英文(同事和上司帮忙把关),这样可以中英文交叉使用。愿有感动的朋友也同我们一起每天付出祷告的代价把孩子带到神的面前,特别在这个已经灾难频发,弯曲悖谬,称恶为善,称善为恶的世代,这个行动尤其重要。

 

您正在为自己判逆或将要判逆的孩子发愁和流尽眼泪而不知如何面对?那就让我们一起每天付出祷告的代价把孩子和自己带到上帝的面前吧!

下面的圣经经文是我们做父母要牢记的。

箴言22:6要教孩子走合宜的路,這樣他到老也不偏離。

以弗所書6:4你們做父親的,不要激怒兒女,只要照耶和華的意思管教他們,糾正他們的思想,把他們撫養成人。

如何为你的孩子祷告

https://cclw.net/coach/PrayForChild/htm/main.html

  

做父母久了就容易养成一些非常不好的习惯,有时候即使明白一些如何教养孩子的道理,但状况到了自己同样用老我老方法去应付,所以经常用下面朋友圈里的信息提醒自己是非常有必要的,当然实在做不到的时候就只有谦卑的倚靠神的帮助。

 

让我们一起努力依靠神,用神的爱和眼光来对待我们的孩子:

1) 从此刻起:我要多鼓励、赞美孩子,而不是批评、指责、埋怨孩子。因为我知道只有鼓励和赞美才能带给孩子自信和力量,批评、指责、埋怨只是在发泄我的情绪,伤害孩子的心灵;

2) 从此刻起: 我要用行动去影响孩子,而不是用言语去说教孩子。因为我知道孩子的行为不是被教导而成,而是被影响和模仿而成;

3) 从此刻起:我要多聆听孩子的心声,而不是急于评断孩子。因为我知道聆听才是最好的沟通。

4) 从此刻起:我要无条件的去爱孩子本来的样子,而不是去爱我要求的样子;因为我知道那是我的自私和自我;

5) 从此刻起:我要学会蹲下来与孩子平等沟通,而不是居高临下的指使孩子。因为我知道强制打压只会带来孩子更强烈的叛逆和反抗;

6) 从此刻起:我要用心去陪伴孩子,而不是心不在焉的敷衍孩子。因为我知道只有真正的陪伴才能让孩子感受到爱的温暖;

7) 从此刻起:我要控制自己的情绪,和孩子一起安静和平的处理好每一个当下。因为我知道脾气和暴力只代表我的无能和对孩子的伤害;

8) 从此刻起:我要积极主动的处理好与爱人的关系,创造一个和谐的家庭环境,绝不让夫妻矛盾影响和伤 害到孩子,因为我知道只有夫妻关系和睦才是对孩子最大的爱;

9) 从此刻起:我要让孩子长成他要长成的样子,而不是我期待的样子。因为我知道孩子并不属于我,他只是经由我来到这个世界,去完成他自己的梦想和使命。

10) 从此刻起:我要通过孩子的问题,找出我自己的问题,修正我自己,因为我知道孩子所有的问题都是我的问题,我是一切的根源;

11) 从此刻起:我要成为孩子生命中最好的朋友

 

愿神赐福每个孩子,每个家庭,每个父母 !
