Dear Heavenly Father,
As I begin a new day,
I pray that You will give me
the strength, wisdom,
patience, and understanding
I will need to be the mother my children need,
and the the mother You want me to be.
I pray my children will learn from me,
and that I would be a good example
for them to learn from.
I pray that You will protect these precious lives
from harm and evil,
and that never for one moment today,
will I forget the fact
that these children are Yours,
and a gift to me that You have entrusted me
to guide back to You.
Please help me to be slow to anger,
and quick to forgive
as You have forgiven me too many times to count.
Let my love pour out to these lives,
that they may know Your Fatherly love
from my motherly love.
Help me to lift them up as individuals
and bring out their strengths and gifts,
to fulfill Your purposes for them.
I prya that they will feel Your presence
and do what's right and holy.
I pray they will do Your Will
throughout their life,
that their relationship with You
will be strong and steadfast.
But most of all,
I pray when their time on earth is done,
they will meet You face to face
and rejoice with You in Heaven.
Please let me be a reflection of You
to these precious lives today.
In Jesus' name,
