An Amazing Prayer!

When my children were babies I stumbled across what I think is one of the most amazing prayers we can pray for our children. And I want to share it with you!

I made a habit of praying this prayer daily as I held them and prepared them for sleep, before I would put them in their cribs.  It’s a prayer that is still applicable even now that they are young adults.

I think you’ll love it as much as I have – it covers an array of topics that concern us as parents:

It’s found in the bible.  Psalm 101.  Here it is below, personalized:

Psalm 101

  _(Child’s name)_ will sing of your love and justice; to you, O Lord, he/she will sing praise.

 He/she will be careful to lead a blameless life – when will you come to him/her?

_______ will walk in his/her house with a blameless heart,

He/she will set before his/her eyes no vile thing.

The deeds of faithless men he/she hates – they will not cling to __________.

Men of perverse heart shall be far from _______; he/she will have nothing to do with evil.

Whoever slanders his neighbor in secret, him will ___________ put to silence;

Whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart, him will ________ not endure.

_______’s eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with ___________.

He whose walk is blameless will minister to ____________.

No one who practices deceit will dwell in ___________’s house.

No one who speaks falsely will stand in his/her presence.

Every morning ___________ will put to silence all the wicked in the land;

He/she will cut off every evil doer from the city of the Lord.

 

Isn’t this a great prayer for our children?!! I hope you use it too! I’d love to hear if you have a prayer that’s close to your heart….
