“And he lifted his eyes and saw the women and children, and said, ‘Who are these with you?’ So he said, ‘The children whom God has graciously given your servant.’”
Dear Lord, behold the children You have graciously given us [Please mention the names of your children one by one here, and if you don’t have children yet, you may say, “Dear Lord, thank You for the children You will give me in future.”]. Please, let them know You are the true, living, and everlasting King, and that Jesus Christ is Your only begotten son. Lord, cause them to fear You, love You, love Your words, love holiness, and hate evil. Also, help them to honor all people, including those in authority. Moreover, help them to cultivate healthy, edifying, and wise friendships that will bless and not destroy them, and help them to honor You with their bodies, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. And when the time comes, please give them good husbands and wives, and let them be in Your presence to enjoy fullness of joy and pleasures, all the days of their lives, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
