A Prayer for Our Children


Dear Readers of Country Squire, I trust You are well and happy.

First, I must apologise for my failure to appear in the magazine last week. I was distracted by a family emergency and did not manage to upload my weekly prayer. I ask your kind forgiveness.

This week I’d like You to pray for your children or the children of a loved one or friend. There are many groups out to take their innocence. Too many sinister abusers of children in our world. The prayer below is a good one.

I wish You all an excellent week ahead and a peaceful June. God bless.

Heavenly Father,

We praise you for Your love and faithfulness in all things. We thank You for your protection and care over our families. Thanks be to You for giving us wisdom and righteousness for raising our children. We confess that some days, parenting is very tough. Many days we can feel anxious, stressed or overwhelmed. We ask that You would make us more like You, more aware of your constant Presence in our lives. Help us to release our children to You, so that You are free to fully accomplish all that You desire within the hearts of our child(ren). Please fill our day to day life with Your truth, and cover us with Your favour in all things.
