How I thank You for my son and the joy that he has brought into my life, but Lord know that this precious child of mine has been entrusted to me by You and I pray that You will enable me to bring him up in the fear and nurture of the Lord.
I pray that he will come to know and love You more with each passing year and that he will grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus. I ask that You will work in his life to conform him into the image and likeness of the Lord, so that it is Christ that is living in him and working through him.
Keep him I pray from the lust of the flesh and the enticements of the world and give him a deep and ongoing love of Your word and a desire to know the truth of Scripture. Lead him into the paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake help him to stand fast in the evil day. This I ask in the precious name of Jesus, who died that we might live,
