Prayer for My Children

Thank You Lord for building my house, I do not labor in vain.  You have heard my heart’s desire for my children and answered my prayers for them.  You have built my house for me and I know You are able to perfect and complete the work that You have started in my family until the day of Jesus Christ.  I have no greater joy than to hear they follow You Father.  You have given me my children as a heritage and a reward.  They are a gift from you.  As for me and my house we will serve You Lord for I believe in You, therefore my whole family will be saved.

Jesus, You have drawn my children close to You.  They know You are the way, the truth and the life.  Your Holy Spirit draws them into Your presence, into Your kingdom. They wash their hands and purify their hearts with Your Word.  Their loyalty is with You Lord, not with the world.  Their focus is on You My King.  My loved ones see Your goodness and desire to walk in it each and every day. They are eager for Your presence God. 

My children are righteous and will hold to their ways, they have clean hands and will grow stronger. They are purified by obeying Your truth and have sincere love for their brothers, they love one another deeply from the heart. They have peace that comes from You ruling in their hearts, they are called to live in peace and are thankful for this. 

My children walk not with the wicked, stand not with the sinners, nor sit with the scoffers. Delighting in Your commands, they think about Your ways day and night. They are as trees planted by the rivers of water yielding fruit in season and their leaves never wither. You have caused my children to prosper in all they do.

My children are disciples taught by You Lord, great is their peace and undisturbed composure. You have given them knowledge of secrets of the kingdom of heaven. Your Spirit teaches them all things and reminds them of everything You have taught them before. All You teach them is true, You teach them Your deep things Lord. They have not received the spirit of the world but Your Holy Spirit Lord, that they may understand what You have freely given them.  All they have received has been by revelation from You Christ.  I know You will keep them strong until the end, so they will be blameless on the day of Your return Jesus.
