Prayer for Your Children to Be Blessed

Father, I thank you for my children, stepchildren, adopted children, spiritual children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and commit them to your love and care. Keep drawing them to Yourself until they personally experience Your love, presence, and truth. Show them that Jesus Christ is indeed the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that no one comes to You except through Him. Protect them, encourage them, and guide them until we all are living together forever in Your presence. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
