A PRAYER FOR OUR CHILDREN

My prayer is that our children know the love You have for them
That they will let their lives be guided, by the Holy Spirit within
I pray that they will know You Lord and all that You have done
From Creation to the amazing sacrifice of Your only Son

I pray that they will realize Jesus had THEM on His heart
When He said “It is finished!” with his body shred apart
I know they’ll never comprehend that scandalous show of grace
But I pray that they believe it washes shame right off their face

I pray they never feel condemned for wrong that they may do
But instead will feel conviction from the love they have for You
Holy Spirit guide them in every choice they’ll have to make
Don’t let the world around them turn them into something fake

Show them who they are, who YOU’VE called them to be
Make Your plans known to them.  Lord, make them known to me
Show us how to raise them to be servants of Your Son
You’ve placed them in our care Lord and I ask Your will be done

It’s in Jesus’ mighty name I pray, He’s my Savior, my Lord, my Friend
I believe it, I receive it, SO BE IT and AMEN!

Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older,
they will not leave it. – Proverbs 22:6
