Praying The Fruit Of The Spirit For Our Kids

Heavenly Father we pray that You would protect the hearts and minds of all our children and deepen the faith in the Lord Jesus that has blossomed in each of our kids - in an world where the truth of the gospel of Christ is ridiculed and rejected.
 
We pray that they would mature in the faith, grow in grace and develop in their spiritual understanding. We pray that they would be be equipped to stand firm in their faith, make wise choices, live a life that is well pleasing to You and be adequately equipped to give an answer for the hope that they have in Christ.
 
We pray that our kids would develop the godly character traits and beautiful fruit of the Spirit that come from a heart that is sold out for Jesus and depending on Him in all things.
 
Protect them we pray from the enticements and entanglements of the world and we ask that the good work that You have been pleased to start on each life will be completed in the day of Christ Jesus, to Your praise and glory. This we ask in Jesus name,
 
Amen
