A Prayer for My Children:

Dear God, Thank you for my children. Thanks for the gift of me being their daddy. Thank you for the woman you have ordained to be their mother. As I see what they have become, it appears that we have handled what God has trusted us with successfully. All that they have accomplished is not because we have  done anything on our own. It Dear God, is because of You. So,  I simply thank You for compelling us to follow Your leadership and instructions. Because our children belong to You, and You have put them in our trust, You has decided  what You wanted them to be, accomplish and achieve. I hope we have followed the instructions of You the creator to the best of our ability. That was all that we could do. And, as I am now a grandparent, I understand that is all my parents did, simply follow the guidance of God in preparing me for life. Finally God, As my children are now parents, I Pray that they will never forget: 1. To train up their children (a child) in the way they should go and when they are old they will no turn from it (Proverbs 22:6). 2. To be righteous in the Lord, for an inheritance of success for your children, as David says, “I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken  or their children begging bread” (Psalm 37:25). 3. And, to always follow the guidance of God, because “….. Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who finds great delight in his commands. His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. (Psalm 112 1-2). In the Name of Jesus I pray Amen

    A wonderful and appropriate prayer. It could be a generic prayer with some modification by the person praying. It covers all bases by acknowledging and accepting God as your personal savior. It’s a perfect Thanksgiving prayer.
