Prayer for Child
by Acts 29 Booklet
Father, Thank You for blessing me with (name). I stand in the gap for him (her), asking You to help him (her) reach his (her) full potential. Help him (her) grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man. Give me wisdom to set a godly example of faith in You, so that he (she) will see Jesus in the way I live my life. Father, help me not provoke, irritate or fret my child. Help me not break or wound his (her) spirit but raise him (her) tenderly in the training, discipline, counsel and admonition of the Lord. Thank You for the assurance that if I train him (her) in the way he (she) should go, when he (she) is old, he (she) will not depart from it. Give (name) a love for Your Holy Word and a desire to live according to it. Help him (her) learn that by following Jesus' example, he (she) can come to know You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
