Lord, I pray my children put all doubts aside regarding the state of their salvation. They have asked You to be their Lord and Savior through the sacrifice of Christ Jesus… and their hearts are being transformed as they work to remove sin from their lives (however slowly… teenagers!) Once the doubt is gone, they will truly be free to live wholly for you…and become the effective people You made them to be while on this planet. Heb 5:12-14, Ac 10:43
Give my children the drive to know You intimately then help them understand it won’t happen overnight. Let my children witness me taking the time and effort to become deeply acquainted with You so that they will have the faith to pursue a relationship with You that is so close that you will walk together…
My children must first WALK OUT of the wilderness before God can deliver them to their Promised Land of blessing. May my children begin to speak God’s Word over their life rather than speak defeat … and choose to walk away from choices that bring them harm. Ephesians 4:29, Isaiah 65:16
You know what You are doing. You have it all planned out. Plans to take care of my children, not abandon them. Plans to give them the future they hope for. When they call on You, when they come and pray to You, You will listen. When they come looking for You, You’ll find them….
Help my children see that constantly seeking council from friends is a sign they aren’t hearing and understanding Your voice. Gently correct their sins so that their hearts will be pure and they can receive Your words. Matthew 5:8
Thank You for giving my children tender hearts. Yes, they feel pain as their hearts break for what breaks yours, and they feel the piercing arrows of your correction. May they never harden so that this divine connection of the heart they share with You remains strong. Their faith is defined as they learn to…
May my children remember our talks with joy and want to spend time with me as much as I want to be with them. I receive comfort in my own suffering when my children remain strong in their faith. How I thank God for them! 1Th 3:7
