Heavenly Father, thank You for the privilege, responsibility and joy of the children You have placed in my life. I humbly ask that You would guide me in the way that I should teach them and train them and pray that they may grow up in the fear and nurture of the Lord. May they grow in godly conduct, make wise choices and learn to be both responsible towards others and accountable to authority. Keep them from worldly ways, direct and govern their lives and may they never depart from the way of righteousness, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a wealth of truth there is in the book of Proverbs. Thank You for reminding me that You desire purity of heart and graciousness of speech in Your blood-bought children. May the words of my mouth, the meditation of my heart, the actions I undertake, and the motives behind all I do, be pleasing in Your sight. Purify my heart I pray, with the burning coal of Your purifying fire so that after I have been tried, I may come forth as gold. I pray that all my words may be seasoned with salt and spoken in love for Your greater praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
