1-11-2013- A PARENTS PRAYER


"REMARKS"

THE FOLLOWING IS A PRAYER I FOUND IN MY POSSESSION THE OTHER DAY AND I FOUND IT NECESSARY TO SHARE IT WITH YOU WHO ARE PARENTS.

REMEMBER, PARENTING IS A SACRED PRIVILEGE.

PSALMS 127: 3-5 = LO, CHILDREN ARE AN HERITAGE OF THE LORD: AND THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB, IS THE REWARD OF THE LORD. AS ARROWS ARE IN THE HAND OF A MIGHTY MAN; SO ARE CHILDREN OF THE YOUTH. HAPPY IS THE MAN THAT HAS HIS QUIVER FULL OF THEM.


"PARENTS PRAYER"

LORD, THANK YOU FOR MY CHILDREN. THEY ARE SUCH A BLESSING AND A RICH TREASURE. HELP ME TO VALUE THEM, IN THE SAME WAY YOU VALUE THEM, FOR OF SUCH IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

I COMMIT MYSELF TO THE IMPORTANT RESPONSIBILITY OF TRAINING MY CHILDREN IN THE SAME WAY THEY SHOULD GO. LORD, I KNOW THAT IF I WILL DO THIS FAITHFULLY, MY CHILDREN WILL NOT DEPART FROM MY TRAINING AND YOUR GUIDANCE, WHEN THEY ARE OLDER.

FATHER, YOU ARE MY FATHER AND YOU SHOW ME HOW A PARENT SHOULD NURTURE AND CARE FOR HIS CHILDREN. THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME YOUR EXAMPLE AND YOUR WORD, TO GUIDE ME AS A PARENT IN THESE DIFFICULT TIMES.

LORD, LET ME BE A LOVING PARENT, WHO SEEKS TO UNDERSTAND HIS/HER CHILDREN. LET THE EMPHASIS OF MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MY CHILDREN, BE UPON CARING, INSTEAD OF CONTROLLING. WORK THROUGH ME, LORD, TO REACH MY CHILDREN. MAY I BECOME MY CHILD'S "SAFE PLACE", LORD, EVEN AS YOU ARE MY REFUGE.

TEACH ME HOW TO RULE MY HOME WELL, HAVING MY CHILDREN IN SUBJECTION WITH ALL GRAVITY, BUT NEVER PROVOKING THEM TO ANGER, OR TO WRATH. HELP ME TO BE FAIR WITH MY CHILDREN AND TO UNDERSTAND THEM, EVEN AS YOU UNDERSTAND ME. TURN MY HEART TO MY CHILDREN AND THE HEART OF MY CHILDREN TO ME, THAT OUR HOME MAY BE BLESSED AND NOT CURSED.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING SUCH GOOD GIFTS TO US, YOUR CHILDREN, LORD. YOU HAVE PROMISED TO GIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO ALL WHO ASK YOU. POUR OUT YOUR HOLY SPIRIT TO ALL WHO ASK YOU. POUR OUT YOUR SPIRIT UPON MY CHILDREN IN THESE DAYS, LORD, THAT THEY MAY PROPHESY AND SEE VISIONS, AND BRING GLORY TO YOUR NAME.

THANK YOU FOR BEING MY LOVING HEAVENLY FATHER. YOUR LOVE AND YOUR POWER ENABLE ME TO BE AN EFFECTIVE PARENT AND I KNOW THIS IS YOUR DESIRE FOR ME.

IN JESUS, YAH'SHUAS, NAME I PRAY!
