Children Should Cry And Groan ~

"Teach therefore your children to know their wretched state and condition; tell them of hell fire and their sins, of damnation and salvation; the way to escape the one, and to enjoy the other, and this will bring tears to their eyes, and make hearty groans flow from their hearts; and then also you may tell them to whom they should pray, and through whom they should pray ; you may tell them also of God's promises, and his former grace extended to sinners, according to the Word."

~John Bunyan, (Prayer. p. 45).
