Are you struggling to get your children to obey you? Do they constantly defy your authority and insist on doing things their own way? If so, then you might want to consider praying for a obedience that will be pleasing to God. In this article, we’ll explore how the prayer process can help us achieve the desired outcome, and provide some practical tips for asking for God’s help in this matter.
Prayer and Obedience
When it comes to obedience, sometimes we feel like we can’t do it. We feel like we’re not strong enough or that God is asking too much from us. But prayer can help us overcome any discouragement and begin to see obedience as a gift from God.
When we pray for obedience, we are acknowledging that obedience is a part of who God is and what He desires for us. We are also committing ourselves to keeping our relationship with God strong through obedient actions. This will help us grow in knowledge and understanding of Him, and develop a deeper trust in Him.
Prayer can also be used as a tool for accountability. When we pray for someone else, we are reminding ourselves that they are also precious to God and deserve our best efforts. This can help us stay on track and make sure that we are living out our convictions in the way that is best for them.
In short, prayer helps us to see obedience as an opportunity to grow closer to God and to others. It is a powerful tool that can help us live better lives.

David also acknowledges that God knows what is best for him and that he cannot do everything on his own. We need to listen to our Father in Heaven and ask Him for His guidance in everything we do.

The biblical foundations of obedience
If you are seeking to understand obedience, then you need look no further than the Bible. Obedience is not a new concept in Christianity, as it has its roots in biblical teachings. There are many verses in the Bible that teach us how to live obediently. Here are just a few:
“Honor your father and mother” (Ephesians 6:1)
“Obey your leaders and submit to their authority” (Hebrews 13:17)
“And if you obey him, you will be prosperous; but if you do not obey him, you will be destroyed” (Proverbs 3:5)
“And he said to him, “If you love me, keep my commandments.” And Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” This is the first and great commandment” (Matthew 22:37-39)
These verses indicate that obedience is essential for a successful life. If we obey God’s commands, we will be rewarded with happiness and success. If we disobey his commands, we will suffer consequences. It is therefore important for us to learn what God wants from us

However, prayer can also be used to request obedience from God in the context of ministry. When ministering to people, it is important to remember that God desires our best for His people. Therefore, it is important to pray for obedience so that we may lead them in the right direction and minister to them in an effective and Christ-like way.
One way to pray for obedience is by asking God to help you discern what is best for your individual parishioners. Ask Him to give you wisdom as you minister to them and guide you in how to care for them spiritually and physically.
Another way to pray for obedience is by asking Him to help you resist temptation when pursuing ministry goals. Pray that He will protect you from harm and allow you to pursue your calling with integrity.
Finally, ask God to help you remain patient with your parishioners even when they do not obey your directives immediately or correctly. Trust that He will bring about His purposes through the process of discipline and restoration.
Dear God, Thank you for the gift of obedience. Please help us to be willing to do what you ask even when it is difficult, and to follow your commands no matter what the cost. Amen.
