Pray that they will grow in the knowledge and friendship of God.
Most parents’ greatest hope for their children is that they will be happy, but a fulfilled life comes from knowing God.
Without God, there is a nagging emptiness. Lots of people know about God, but knowing Him personally is different.
We all know a lot about our nation’s President but only a few know him personally.
Pray that they live a worthy life. Pray that their lives have an impact for good, and that they will be people of trustworthy character. Pray that they’re strengthened in God’s power.
The world and evil influences will seek to pull our children down. They need God’s power to be strong, resist temptation, and do the right thing.
Thank God for each child. They are unique and beautifully made creations of God.
“For this reason also, we have not ceased to pray for you,” Colossians 1:9.
