Loving Father, I want You to be the One watching over my life in all I say and do, for I confess that without You I can do nothing, but I praise Your name that I can do all things through Christ, Who gives me the strength, in His name I pray, AMEN
Heavenly Father, thank You for the benefits of a good night's sleep, but thank You also for the day by day provision of the gifts and graces, that are ours in Christ - and which are even poured out on us during the night-time hours. Thank You for the work that You have given me to do, during my time on earth. Lord, I know that without You, I can do nothing, and yet I praise You that I can do all things through Christ, Who strengthens me. Keep me from the worries of the day, the fears of the night, and from trying to sort out my personal problems, without coming to You, and relying on Your sufficient strength and promised grace. May I never forget that it is YOU who provides for my daily needs, and I pray that from this day forward, I may do all for Your greater glory and praise. This I ask in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Loving heavenly Father, Thank You for the gift of my precious children and what a privilege it is to see my grandchildren growing up and learning about You. Thank You Father for each little life and I lift each one up to You Lord, and pray that by Your grace and love You would surround them with Your love, throughout their lives.
Guard and guide them all I pray and uphold and protect them. May each one come to know You Lord as their personal Saviour and may they all come to a deep understanding of all You are and all that You have done for them - Oh Lord I pray most earnestly that each one would accept You into their hearts and lives as their Lord and Saviour.
I pray that as they grow into their teens and become young adults that You would keep their hearts and minds turned to You and trusting in Jesus, for their every need. Protect each one from the philosophies and mindset of the world that are so contrary to the truth of Scripture and may each one grow in grace and become strong in their faith as they develop in wisdom and discernment.
Protect them from the evils of this age, keep them from temptations and help them to live godly lives and to develop as responsible adults who will teach their own children the wonderful truth of Salvation through Christ Jesus our Lord,
