Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee approached Jesus with her sons and did Him homage, wishing to ask Him for something.
As a parent, we want the best for our children. There reaches a point when our children become adults, and we can help physically, only a little. In fact, most often we must simply sit back and let their lives, their choices, unfold. But is that truly all we can do? No, we still may help in a powerful way - PRAY. Our Heavenly parents also want the best for us, their children. God chooses to let our lives, our choices, unfold. He too continues to help in a powerful way, and this time it is us who must PRAY. He NEVER must simply sit back. He is eternally Our Father and we are eternally children. We are never referred to as the Adults of Christ, we are always His children. 1John 3:1 "The Father has loved us so much that we are called children of God."
As parents - PRAY. As children(adults) - PRAY.
