Lifting My Children
Lord, thank you for my children. I ask your will for them in these things according to your Word.
Early in life, fill my children with love for you, that they would love you “with all (their) heart and with all (their) soul and all (their) mind.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
Train my children, to love deeply, sincerely, and sacrificially, seeing and loving others as you do. (1 Peter 1:22- 1 John 3:16) Empower me to daily model your love and compassion to them.
Give my children, love for your Word. Allow them to know and understand it, and to follow it wholeheartedly. ( Psalm 1:1-3)
Fill them, “with the knowledge of (your) will in spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of (you) fully pleasing to (you) bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.” ( 1 Colossians 1:9-10 Psalm 90-17 James 1:5)
Compel them, to pray continually (1Thessalonians 5:17) so that they will live and walk by your Spirit (1 Galatians 5:25) Help them to listen to you as Samuel did. (1 Samuel 3:10)
Help me, to train my children according to the unique way you’ve designed each one. (Proverbs 22:6 1 Corinthians 12:4-7 Ephesians 2:10)
Enable me, to commit them to your loving care and control rather than worry about them. (1 Philippians 4:6 1 Peter 5:7)
