Prayer for Micah 6:8

“He has told you men what is good and what it is the Lord requires of you: Only to act justly, to love faithfulness, and to walk humbly with your God.”

To Walk Close to Thee

O God, our Father, help us to see ourselves as children who seek guidance; children who walk in the midst of many dangers.

Help us not to be afraid so long as we walk close to Thee. Thy ways, O God are higher than our ways and often we do not understand. Teach us, O God, that we do not have to understand but to trust and Thou wilt see us through every difficulty in life.

When Thou art near, I am not afraid, I want to “draw nigh to God” in the assurance that when I do, He will “draw nigh unto me,”

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

Parent’s Prayer Of Gratitude on Graduation Day

Heavenly Father, the past few years seem to have sped by and here we are preparing for the graduation of our precious child.. who not so long ago was a helpless babe in our arms.
 
 Thank You for this child that You gave us to care for and nurture and as they face the unknown future we pray that You would draw very close to them and lead and guide in the days that lie ahead.
 
Our own hearts are a mixture of contrasting emotions: - pride in their achievement and concern for their future well-being. But we do pray that this graduation ceremony would be a special time of celebration and that nothing would mar the joy and excited anticipation we are feeling.. despite the inevitable tinges of apprehension.
 
As our child reaches this important milestone in their life we ask for Your continued presence to lead and to guide in all things.. and as they step out into the unknown world of new responsibilities and life-challenges, we finally hand them completely over into Your safe-keeping and ask that Your presence will accompany them and that they continue to grow in grace and draw ever closer to You with each passing day – this we ask in Jesus name
 
Amen
