A Prayer for Children

Across the country most - if not all - children are on Summer Break. They are enjoying time off from school, but in just a couple months, they will be heading back to school. This year my grandson Josiah will be in second grade and Caleb will be in preschool - a busy year is ahead for sure. 

So, as I think about my Josiah and Caleb, the children in my church and across the country I know the very best thing I can do for them is to pray, pray, pray. I want Josiah, Caleb and all children to enjoy their Summer Break and then have a good new year in school; one where they learn the things they need to learn, are able to build solid relationships and most importantly, come to know and walk with God more.

So, my prayer for Josiah, Caleb, the children in my church and everywhere is . . . 

Luke 2:52 - Jesus became wise, and he grew strong. God was pleased with him and so were the people. (CEV) Matthew 28:20 - Teach them to do everything I have told you. I will be with you always, even until the end of the world. (CEV)

Dear God, on this day I pray for Josiah, Caleb, the children at my church and children everywhere as they enjoy their Summer Break and then head back to school. Please help them to become wise; not in the "wisdom" of this world, but in true wisdom which is from You. Please help them to grow strong; physically, emotionally and most importantly, spiritually, so You will be pleased with them. Please help them learn to do everything You want them to do and know as they go through their days, You are with them always. Thank You, Amen!

Please join me in praying for children this year!
