HELP ME CELEBRATE EACH CHILD AS UNIQUELY CREATED

My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
β€”Psalm 139:15–16

Lord, thank You for my precious child! You are the One who makes each tiny snowflake with a unique and beautiful pattern; how much more have You fearfully and wonderfully made my child....

MAY I HAVE WISDOM IN ALL I SAY

The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
β€”Proverbs 12:18

Lord, take charge of my words, which have the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21). Set a guard over my mouth. Keep watch over the door of my lips (Psalm 141:3). May my words edify, not destroy; benefit, not harm....

HELP ME TO PUT ON THE NEW SELF

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
β€”Ephesians 4:22–24

Lord, thank You that when I believe in Your death for me on the cross, I become a new creation. My life is now hidden in You. Help me not to fall into worldly ways of parenting....

HELP ME TO BE A BLESSING

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
β€”1 Corinthians 12:4–7

Lord, You gave each of us gifts so that we can serve others. I pray that You would use me to bless others, especially my child. Help me to be sensitive to Your call to participate in Your work....

HELP ME TO BUILD A STRONG HEART-TO-HEART CONNECTION

Just as a nursing mother cares for her children, so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.
β€”1 Thessalonians 2:7–8

Lord, grant me a strong heart-to-heart connection with my child. I pray that my child will see how everything I do or say comes from a heart of love. Even in my mistakes, may my child see my sincere love and may we always reconcile with each other....

BRING MY CHILD TO A SAVING KNOWLEDGE OF YOU

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
β€”John 3:16–18

Lord, may my child learn to put her faith in You for her salvation. Enable me to faithfully teach her Your gospel and to be a good testimony in my actions....

MAY SHE REALIZE HER NEED FOR YOU

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
β€”Romans 5:6–8

Lord, may my child not have any false or arrogant belief that people are good and can become right in Your eyes by their own effort. Help her understand that she is a helpless sinner and the only way to be saved is to trust in Jesus....

PUT THE FEAR OF GOD IN MY CHILD

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
β€”Colossians 2:6–7

Lord, instill in my child a reverent fear of You as our just and loving Heavenly Father. May his reverence for You keep him on the godly path in all his life choices, and may he never bow in fear to the world’s opinions....

MAY HE HAVE PASSION FOR YOUR WORD

I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
β€”Psalm 119:11

Lord, I pray that Your Word will always be a lamp for my child’s feet and a light for his path. Keep him from wrong by hiding Your Word in his heart. May his path be narrow but well-lit by Your wisdom and counsel....

MAY SHE RUN THE RACE TO THE END

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.
β€”1 Corinthians 9:24–27

Lord, I know You will bring to completion the work You began. May my child persevere in her faith and be faithful to the very end of her life on earth or until she meets you face to face. May she be filled with the fruit of your salvation....

May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.

MAY HE BECOME MORE LIKE CHRIST

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
β€”Galatians 5:22–25

Lord, may Your Holy Spirit work in my child so as to produce the fruit of the Spirit in his life. Plant the desire in his heart to live a life that counts for eternity, a life where he bears much Christ-like character....
