May my children choose to love You. Talk is cheap… their actions prove to You who they serve! You have given each of them the gift of Your voice, the constant presence of Knowledge available to them. I pray with all my heart they learn to LISTEN to You (that still, small voice in their minds!) I pray Your presence outgrows the overpowering ‘promptings’ of the enemy that come in the form of peer pressure, media, celebrity, and physical desire to make my children believe satisfying the craving’s of their flesh in ways that dishonor God is perfectly acceptable because “everyone is doing it… their parents don’t care!” Ro 8:29-30.
Build strong character in my children by giving them a clear sense of purpose. As they mature in character they will crave Your word, then all will be revealed; why we are alive, how life works, what to avoid, and what to expect in the future. My children will build their life on eternal truths,…
May the sunrise become sacred to my children as the Glory of God speaks out over all the earth. May they exalt God above the heavens as they are reminded in Technicolor to live this day for You! Psalms 57:11
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. John 17:15-18, 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
Help my children carry the burden of someone else today, taking time to listen to a hurting friend, showing kindness to the lonely, or encouraging the downtrodden with their patience. Galatians 6:2
Help my children do what they should so they may enjoy the personal satisfaction of having done their work well. They are responsible for their own conduct and don’t need to compare themselves to anyone else. Gal 6:4-5
Nothing blocks promise like prayers NOT prayed. In order to receive Your blessings my children must humble themselves and ask! James 4:2
