You purposely created my children with a need that only You can meet. When they come to depend on other sources to fill that need they are guilty of idolatry. May they recognize what they are doing, stop, and learn to enjoy the fullness of a daily relationship with You.

Help my children grasp that Your promises apply only under covenant relationship. Let them understand that You never break Your promises … but if my children choose to break covenant with You by living in unrepentant disobedience … they have broken the covenant and ultimately their conduit in receiving Your promises.
1 Chronicles 28:9

May my children reach deep and put on strong and courageous behaviors and move forward doing what you have called them to do. As they remember that You are with them, my children will fear not nor be dismayed. You promise not to fail or forsake them as they complete the work You have set before them. Thank You for being there for my babies!
1Chronicles 28:20

My children are only accountable for what You give them. Do not let them become bogged down comparing their lives to others.

John 15:5, Matthew 13:8

Please make Your presence know to my children so they may know and experience Your joy. Don’t let them depend on our world for happiness for if they do their only joy will come from reaction to circumstances … but You can plaster a smile on their faces that will puzzle even the deepest cynic and cause others to want what they have … YOU!
Nehemiah 8:10, John 14:15

One Happy Meal will not satisfy my children for the rest for the day … we are lucky if the effect lasts until we get to the car. And so it is with peace and prosperity!

As they walk in Your divine will … and push through … Your promises will see them through!

When my children are on my last nerve and I feel overcome with irritability, selfishness, anger, or resentment for my present circumstances, may I recognize the root of the problem … which is NOT my children, but my hungry soul needing to rest in You.
