As we get into my busy season at work, I intend for one of my posts each week to be various prayers that I hope people may find helpful if they want to pray for their own children or grandchildren. Sometimes I have really struggled to know what to pray, and I hope that these prayers may help others too.
Since this post is mainly introducing the subject, I'll include a prayer here that is particularly short:
Lord, thank you for (name of child). May he grow in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. May he love you and and follow you throughout his life.
