Below is a prayer we posted just a few days ago to our Mannford Church of Christ Facebook page. We post a prayer at the beginning of every month for children, their parents, and others involved in their life (teachers, ministers, etc.).
Jesus intends for us to be heavily involved in prayer for one another, in good times and in bad (Matthew 6:9-13). As you read this prayer, consider all of those that need you to be praying for them and realize as well that there are many people praying for you.
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward."
Father, we thank You for the gift of our children. We thank You for giving us souls to mold and shape into the image of Your Son. We thank You for the forgiving us when we aren't as patient with our children as we need to be. We thank You for all the moments we share with our children day by day. We thank You for their love, joy, excitement, and energy and we pray that as our children grow older they learn to love others and love You. Thank you, Father, for the gift of children and for entrusting us with them.”
