Mark 10:13-16 New Living Translation (NLT)
One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so he could touch and bless them. But the disciples scolded the parents for bothering him. When Jesus saw what was happening, he was angry with his disciples. He said to them, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them

Ephesians 6:18
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Six Types of Prayer
Supplication - Questions, specific requests
Intercession - Prayer for others
Agreement - Two or more persons
Thanksgiving - Worshiping God, giving thanks
Dedication - Set apart for God’s purpose
Prayer of Faith - For healing and major needs

The purpose of the prayer of dedication is to ask God to bless and set apart a person for His purposes. We can also offer prayers of dedication over facilities and anything used for God’s purpose.

Our responsibility is to never get between Jesus and children, but to train them to love God and recognize Him.

We all start out living on the faith our our parents.
We learn how to live in the grace of our own faith in God.

Position, Protection, and Provision are the Blessings of Dedication.
