Wisdom In Raising Children

Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for my precious children. Give me wisdom Lord as I seek in Your strength to raise them to know the truth of Your Word.

Help me never to hold my children too tightly to myself or develop an attitude of parental selfishness, but help me to equip them to become men and women of God who develop an attitude of responsibility, wisdom and faithfulness to You, as they develop and grow older and take up their own positions in the world.

Lord, I commit my children into Your keeping. I love them so dearly, yet I know that Your love for each of my children far exceeds the love that I could have. Keep them I pray, under the shadow of Your protective wings. May the Holy Spirit lead them and guide them into all truth, and may they grow in grace and mature in the faith of Christ Jesus.

I ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus,
