“Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the treasures of children. We lift our precious ones up to you. Lord, let your mighty hand of protection envelop every part of their mind, body and spirit.
Move their hearts to walk in the paths best for them. Even if it seems they’re being led astray, create detours and provide mentors to guide them in your ways.
Let the power of your peace and joy draw them into deeper fellowship with those committed to living righteously. Open their minds and hearts to consider the life you offer.
Dry up every well leading to spiritual deadness. Give them a hunger and a thirst to pursue life-giving truth and the discernment to recognize the decoys of destruction.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
