I pray my children will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I confidently trust.” When they do, then He will cover them with His pinions, and under His wings they will find trust and refuge;
His truth and His faithfulness are their shield.

Deuteronomy 20:4-5
