How can a young man
keep his way pure?
By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:9-11
Our children need to be protected by God’s word when they sleep. We know this, at least in part, because Scripture promises it will offer protection while one is sleeping. By implication, those who do not seek the protection the Scriptures offer are vulnerable to spiritual attack during sleep. The question at the end of the last post was How do children acquire this protection? The verses above, from Psalm 119, are a good place to start.
