5 things you could say this week for the children in your life
Almighty God, so many today are looking for satisfaction. Yet they do not turn to You. Instead they search for fulfillment through power, drugs, sex, etc. By doing this, they will only multiply their sorrows. God, I pray that my children and grandchildren will find lasting meaning in life and true satisfaction in You.
“The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply.” (Psalm 16:4a)
“For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.” (Psalm 107:9)
Life can be so hard, and sometimes my children and grandchildren will be wronged. I pray they will not try to prove themselves right, but instead wait on you. Defend my loved ones, all-powerful Lord.
“From your presence let my vindication come! Let your eyes behold the right!” (Psalm 17:2)
How my children and grandchildren relate to You, Lord, will have a lot to do with their character. I pray they will be merciful, honest … committed to Jesus Christ. May they be humble and remember that pride comes before a fall.
“With the merciful you show yourself merciful; with the blameless man you show yourself blameless; with the purified you show yourself pure; and with the crooked you make yourself seem tortuous. For you save a humble people, but the haughty eyes you bring down.” (Psalm 18:25-27)
“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18)
Precious children and grandchildren, may your thoughts and actions today bring honor and glory to God. No matter what happens, may He always be the solid rock of your life.
“The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock, and exalted be the God of my salvation.” (Psalm 18:46)
As my children and grandchildren go through their days and nights, may they take time to look into the heavens. And when they see Your amazing handiwork, may they praise You.
“The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.” (Psalm 19:1-2)
