Lord, I lift my children/grandchildren to You today and pray, according to Your Word, that:
>They will know Christ as Savior early in life and desire a close relationship with You throughout their childhood, teen, and adult years (Mark 10:13-16; Luke 2:52; 2 Timothy 3:15).
>They will develop the discipline of prayer and time in Your Word (Joshua 1:8; Daniel 6:10; Matthew 4:4; Philippians 4:6-7).
>You will bring into their lives godly adults and friends who will help them grow in godly living (Psalm 1:1-3; Philipians 1:27; Proverbs 27:17; I Corinthians 4:15).
>You will keep them pure and strengthen them against temptation (Job 17:9; Psalm 24:3-4; I Corinthians 6:18-20).
>They would develop discernment, wisdom, responsibility, and a strong conscience (I Kings 3:11-12; I Timothy 1:5; Daniel 6:3).
>They will be caught if they wander into cheating, lies or mischief (Psalm 119:71; Proverbs 20:30).
>They will see other people as You do, treating them with love and kindness (Matthew 25:35-40; Romans 12:10; Philippians 2:1-4).
>You will protect them from emotional, physical and spiritual danger (Psalm 28:7-9; Psalm 41; John 17:15; 2 Thessalonians 3:3).
>You will prepare them to be a godly, loving and faithful spouse or prepare them to glorify You in their singleness (I Corinthians 7:7-8); and that You also prepare their future spouse (2 Corinthians 6:14-15; Ephesians 5:21-33).
>They would leave home with an eternal perspective and Christ-like values (Matthew 28:18-20; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 1:21).
>They will sense Your calling on their lives and their lives will count for Your kingdom (Psalm 78:1-8; 103:12-18; 2 Timothy 1:9).
