Loving Lord and Heavenly Father, what a joy it has been to see this dear son of mine growing from childhood into his teenage years. Lord, how time seems to have flown-by and I thank You for the love and comfort he has brought me over the years, as well as the many pains and problems that we have also had to face, with Your help as well. Lord, I pray that as he grows and develops in his teenage years that You would give me the grace and ability to guide him wisely in the choices that he will have to make. Help me to be willing and able to encourage as well as warn, to support as well as to correct.
Guard and protect him from the lure of world lusts and the fleshly desires and Lord, and as the enticements of the world become ever more enticing I pray that he would be led and guided by Your Spirit to make the right decisions and to resist temptation.
Father, I have sought to bring my son up in the fear and nurture of the Lord and I pray that he would continue into manhood in right relationship with You and with those with whom he comes in contact. May he grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ and I pray that he may become a mighty man of God, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray,
