Prayer for Children

I am sorting through one of my infamous piles. I found a laminated bookmark with these words in calligraphy - I bought it at a conference a few years ago. Thank You, God, for timely reminders.

Pray for your children...

...that they will know Christ early in life. (Psalm 63:1)

...that they will have a hatred for sin. (Psalm 97:10)

...that they will be caught when guilty. (Psalm 119:71)

...that they will be responsible. (Daniel 6:3)

...that they will respect their authorities. (Romans 13)

...that they will desire Godly friends. (Proverbs1:10-11)

...that they will be kept for the right spouse. (2 Corinthians 6:14)

...that they, as well as those they marry, will be kept pure until marriage. (1 Corinthians 6:18-20)

...that they will be single-hearted,willing to be sold out to Jesus Christ. (Romans 12:1-2)

...that they will learn to totally submit to God and resist Satan. (James 4:7)
