Rich Halin’s prayer. . .”Be with my child, Lord, on this journey.”
Don’t you want to protect your children and grandchildren from all the hurts of life. . . the ones we suffered and more. I pray every night that God will protect them from life’s evils! I think we need to teach self worth so they can be strong in who they are. Repeat over and over that they are a miracle of God–unique and one of a kind! We need to teach them to be wise and thoughtful, problem solvers that can be strong to say NO and leave when things seem to be wrong. . . they can tell because their conscience will be at work. Keep lines of communication open so they will bring all their trials to you. . . discuss, reassure, advise, or at least help them see all possibilities and consequences.
Sending prayers to parents to be strong. . . it is not an easy job! . . . but oh, so much joy!
Pro 13:20 “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise; but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”
May we all teach our children to be faithful messengers of Godly things—choose friends wisely! Respect yourself! Be strong!
