Prayers of Promise: The Proclamation of Praise: Growth

-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

The Child continued to grow and become strong [in spirit], filled with wisdom; and the grace (favor, spiritual blessing) of God was upon Him. Luke 2:40 AMP
Reflect on this statement, inspired by today’s Scripture, and let it guide you into prayer: 
I pray that my children will grow, not only in years but also in depth of love and maturity. Give them wholeness in body, soul, and spirit. Bless them with good health, and may their desires be set on doing all that is pleasing to You.

Prayer
Lord Jesus, thank You for coming to this earth, taking on human flesh, living among us, and doing Your Father's will. Thank You for the way You lived and what You taught us through Your words and Your life.
I pray that my children will grow in the same ways You grew. May they have a sharp focus and clear purpose; may they know why they are here and where they are going; may they have the inner strength to grow strong in character; and may they always be about their heavenly Father's business. I pray that my children will grow, not only in years but also in depth of love and maturity. Give them wholeness in body, soul, and spirit. Bless them with good health, and may their desires be set on doing all that is pleasing to You. May they be filled with wisdom and may Your grace, favor, and spiritual blessings be upon them.
Above all, I ask that my children will be strong in spirit—being at Your feet, knowing Your worthiness, intimate in their relationships with You, supping at Your table, and communing with You daily.
Lord, I ask that my children will be strong in spirit.
