Develop my children’s natural abilities and place opportunities in front of them that line up with those abilities so they can discover what they love to do. Lead them in the direction of that beloved endeavor, place other people in their paths that encourage them to stay the course, and most of all, give them the strength to pursue and develop this passion so they truly accomplish the work You have placed them here to accomplish! 2Ti 1:6
You reveal things to my children they can neither prove nor explain. May they stop living beneath their spiritual privilege and LISTEN to the promptings warning them to avoid certain situations or certain people … I pray they stay connected to You so this incredible insight into discernment may always be present in their lives….
Let my children experience the exquisite peace and contentment that You have given to me. Then they will crave more and seek opportunities for righteous living … for Your confidential communion and secret counsel are only with those who are upright and in right standing with You. Proverbs 3:32
I pray my children will invite the Word to penetrate them through and through with its full power and authority for the purpose of sanctifying them as they are trying to walk with You while battling peer pressure. Jn 17:15-18, 1 Th 5:23-24
I want to be a good example for my children. Help me undedstand that true joy and peace are directly tied to my faith. If I want more joy, or more peace … I must simply ask You for more faith. Just as eating pie brings a smile to my face, asking for more faith…
When my children feel the favor, benefits, and opportunities that seem too good to be true, as if the stars have lined up and everything is too perfect … I pray they give You the glory. May they walk securely in Your favor in these moments and reject any feeling of discouragement, weariness or exhaustion….
Keep my children away from complaining and arguing. Help them live clean, innocent lives as children of God in a dark world full of crooked and perverse people. Php 2:14-15
