“God, I’m so grateful for the children you’ve given me! Give me wisdom in how to raise them according to Your word (James 1:5). Help me teach them to love Your law. We will talk of Your ways when we sit at home, when we walk along the road, when we lie down & when we get up (Deut 6). Help me to share my spiritual growth with them & talk of all the great things You’ve done in my life.
I pray they won’t forget Your teaching, but instead, keep Your commands in their heart so they may live in peace & prosperity. Let love & faithfulness never leave them; may they bind them around their necks & write them on their hearts, so they will win favor & a good name in the sight of You & man. May they trust in the Lord with all their heart & lean not on their own understanding; but submit to You so their paths will be straight. (Prov 3:1-6).”
