This is a great article. One of my two girls, my youngest, goes to church every Sunday with me. My oldest doesn’t want to. I try to convince her there is nothing more important than her soul, that all physical things will pass away, but the spirit is eternal. Right now it seems to go in one ear and out the other. Pray for her. I pray that God will enlighten her one day as well, as well as my wife, who is in the same boat with her. My wife believes in God, but doesn’t feel she needs to go to church, even though it is a commandment. I was like that, until one day I felt the Holy Spirit stirring so strongly in me that I woke up. I hope and pray the same happens for them.

Scot, I have prayed for your family, especially your wife and oldest daughter. What came to my mind to ask you is: have you considered doing a weekly family bible study in your home? Yes, we are to fellowship with other believers, but perhaps having a family home based bible study will be a great start. I would tailor it in such a way that it’s a fun time learning about intimacy with the Lord and family at a specific time every week, yet you and your younger daughter continue to attend your church, while Holy Spirit continues to work on them. I would not mention church during the family Bible study I would just allow Holy Spirit to bring that back to them. I would also pray Ephesians 1:17-23 and Isaiah 54:13-17 over them daily. I pray this helps, God bless, increase and prosper you in this endeavor.

Thanks you for your prayers. I would have to say my wife and daughter would not participate in this. I keep trying to have casual conversations with them about it. If I force too hard, I fear they will tell me to not bring it up anymore. I wish Jesus would visit them personally and tell them to come back to Him. I have prayed for this.

I completely disagree with this article. You should never force you’re kids to go to church because they will hate it the more.

Hello Rey. The children can’t be left at home while their parents are at church and besides, the Bible teaches them to love people, forgive people, and not hurt people as our schools won’t teach that. Your reasoning that they are forced to go to church and will hate it more is not a logical argument. That’s like saying don’t let children go to the dentist when they’re children because “they will hate it the more.” Point being, you are wrong. Children are to obey their parents until they are legal adults.
