My Monday Prayer: A Prayer of Instruction
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Remember to pray this prayer over you, as well as any children in your life. We need to give permission to God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to speak truth in instruction to us.
My child, listen when your father corrects you. Don’t neglect your mother’s instruction. What you learn from them will crown you with grace and be a chain of honor around your neck. Proverbs 1:8-9 NLT
Thank You, Lord, for the place and privilege you have given me in the lives of my children. I am so grateful that you have ordained for me, by Your grace and Holy Spirit, to speak into their lives through a right example, with wise words, with loving correction, and with practical instruction.
I pray that we will continue to grow in wisdom as we hear Your instruction, read Your word, and learn from the circumstances and relationships You bring into our lives.
I pray that our children will always be good hearers and listeners of Your voice, and strong followers of Your will. Help them to see life from Your point of view and to always live with the values of eternity before them as they make choices.
I ask that they will learn to know Your voice; that they will
treasure Your truth in their hearts; that will seek out Your approval. May they
live each day with the crown of Your grace upon their heads and the chain of
Your honor and favor around their necks.
