Gift my children with your Holy Spirit, giving them vision, inspiring them with creative ideas, introducing them to the right people, and empowering them to do the job. Fill them completely with faith and the love of Jesus Christ. Have mercy on them because of their sin and use them as examples to other sinners that they too can believe in Him and receive eternal life.

Let my children see me loving others, especially those that are hard to love so they too may know the way.
