(This is a prayer for parents to pray for themselves and other parents in their child’s life.)
I pray for myself, the other parent, and any stepparents involved in our child’s life
That we would guide them to a lifestyle that glorifies Christ.
Fill our mouths with gentle words when we should speak kindly,
And help us to stand firm when we should be assertive.
Inspire us to be a good example to our children,
And motivate us to keep our word to them
So they will trust in Your Words
As they read them and consider them.
Remind us to teach spiritual concepts
As we teach life skills.
Prevent us from holding them back
When we need to let go.
Give us spiritual insight and wisdom
To understand their problems
So we can communicate enlightened counsel.
Allow us never to forget that
Our children need parents
Long after they have left the house.
Teach us the way to be loving parents
In every stage of their lives.
Help us to let go of selfish sins
So our children do not adopt our sinful ways.
Allow us to leave a legacy to the next generation—
Let it be our upstanding, godly children
With a passion to serve You, Lord.
In Christ’s Name, Amen.
