Friend, today is it! The last day of packing as we take Mariah to college tomorrow. I really can’t believe it is here already. I have spent the majority of the summer in denial and now I really have to face it!
Today, let’s pray for our children to bring Jesus glory as they start another school year! Won’t you print this prayer out and join me?
To Bring You Glory
Ephesians 1: 12 “in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.”
May my children bring You glory. Because of the life that they live, may others see your splendor, brilliance and honor.
Let it begin in their thought life. Open their eyes to recognize destructive thoughts and according to 2 Corinthians 10:5 may they demand every thought to be obedient to You.
May they bring you glory with their words.
Help them to hear their words in their head, and evaluate them, before they ever escape from their mouth.
May they bring You glory with their actions.
Jesus, cause them to be sensitive to Your Holy Spirit living inside of them, giving them direction and leading them in the way of obedience and a blessed life! I know these are big requests, God, but I know you are a big God who can do great things!
Thank you that you are at work each and every day in the lives of our children, Lord. We trust in You!
Do you have a friend who could use this prayer for her children? Please forward it to her!
