We are so thankful that You have blessed us with children to raise. And as mothers we often think we know best. However, You have a plan for each of our daughter's and son's lives. You have given each one of them their own personality, future, and calling. Often times this can clash with our vision for our children and how we think their lives should be.
Father, sometimes we think that our children should be like us. As mothers it is our mission to raise, teach, instruct, guide, and love them. Help us to recognize our child’s potential, realizing that maybe the strong-willed personality is a strength that You have given them; it is for a reason, it is for Your work. Help us to take these challenges in stride and not personally or with discouragement.
Father, today we pray for our children. We pray for their future and the plan You have for them; whatever that may be. May we continually pray for them, the path You will take them on, and for ourselves for Your guidance and discernment in this journey.
"Teach your children to choose the right path, and when they are older, they will remain upon it. " Proverbs 22:6
