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 lives on eternal truths, not pop psychology, success, motivation or inspirational stories. 1Corinthians 2:7, 1Timothy 1:12
Thank you Lord for placing remarkable people around my children’s table.

Surround my children with people who celebrate and worship You. May they love and be kind to all people, especially those who don’t know You… keep them from adopting the ways of those who do not trust You… so they do not fall victim to the enemy. Jos 23:14
