  1. Lifting My Children through Prayer……
    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…..(Mk 10:13-16, Luke 2:52, 2Tim 3:15)
    *They will bring into their lives godly adults and friends who will help them grow in godly living..(Ps 1:1-3, Phil 1:27, Prov 27:17, ICor 4:15)
    *You will keep them pure and stengthen them against temptation…(IKings 3:11-12, I Tim 1:5, Daniel 6:3 )
    *They would develop discernment, wisdom, responsibility, and a strong conscience…(I Kings 3:11-12, I Tim 1:5, Dan 6:3)
    *They will be caught if they wander into cheating, lies, or mischief…(Psalm 119:71, Prov 20:30)
    *They will see other people as You do, treating them with love and kindness… (Matt 25:35-40, Rom 12:10, Phil 2:1-4)
    *You will protect them from emotional, physical, and spiritual danger…(Psalm 28:7-9, Psalm 41, John 17:15, 2Thess 3:3)
    *You will prepare them to be a godly, loving, and faithful spouse or prepare them to glorify You in their singlesness…( I Cor 7:7-8, and that You also prepare their future spouse… ( 2 Cor 6:14-15 , Ephe 5:21-33 )
    *They would leave home with an eternal perspective and Christ-like values…(Matt 28:18-20, Gal 2:20, Phil.2:21 )
    *They will sense Your calling on their lives and their lives will count for Your kingdom ( Psalm 78:1-8, 103:12-18, 2 Tim 1:9)

    PRAYING FOR MYSELF…..AS A PARENT OR GRANDPARENT….
    Here is a prayer you might use as you commit yourself to the task of being a praying mom, dad or granparent:
    *Help me today, Lord to be observant of them and sensitive to them. give me unusual insight into their lives. *Help me to be secure in Your love and care, Father,…for I need Your help as much as they do.
    *Help me give attention to my children and be available to them to give guidance in the decisions they face. Help me provide a moral foundation for them. Help me give them emotional health by valuing and caring for them.
    *Help me provide for their needs and prepare them for the world they’ll face as they grow. Help me share my relationship with You, Father.
    *And today, Lord, remind me to take the time to undeerstand my children’s perspectives before I speak. Remind me to be more playful with them.
    *Give me the grace, Lord, to model for my children what it means to be a good and godly person, AMEN

    PRAYER IS THE GREATEST SHIELD…protection we can provide for our children…
