Over twenty years ago a Godly older woman exhorted me to pray for my children. She encouraged me to pray Colossians 1:9-14. She encouraged me to write that prayer on an index card and keep it in my purse and to pray while at stoplights, doctor's offices, while in line at the grocery store. This prayer has been in my prayer journal ever since that day.
I encourage you today to pray the following prayer for your children, as you rise up, as you walk along the way as your lie down, pray for your children. It is God who works in our children to produce Godliness. We can show them the way but only He can produce good fruit.
9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,[e] 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you[f] to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
All to Him I Owe
