Father, I offer to You thanksgiving and praise that You sent Your only begotten Son into the world so that my children and grandchildren and I might live through Him. Thank you for rescuing our souls from eternal death and keeping us from constantly failing.
“Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; Yes, our God is merciful. The LORD preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me. Return to your rest, O my soul, for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you. For You have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.” Psalm 116:5-8
I bring my children and grandchildren to You and ask that You would give each of them the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the understanding of You and Your Word.
Direct them to be strong enough to refuse to fall into the ways of the foolish. I ask that You give my children and grandchildren the ability to discern between good and evil, holy and unholy and right and wrong.
Give them revelation that fills their mind and heart with a vision for their life that opens their eyes to what your purpose and calling is for them. Encourage them to be guided by that revelation so “…that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,” Ephesians 1:17.
I ask and pray these things to You, my God, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
