Father God, thank You for giving my children a knowledge of good and evil. I pray that by Your mercy You would lead them into Your presence where they may come to know You more fully. Help my children see and experience Your goodness and entice them to become more like You in all they say and do. May they bear much fruit, leaving behind an aroma that magnifies Your name.
Father I pray You would build each of my children’s characters in humility and transparency. Do not let them make hasty decisions that could harm others or themselves. Keep them honest and self-controlled in all their daily dealings. Remind them to be wise and upright at all times and in every way. May they test everything, hold on to the good and avoid every kind of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:21-22). Through their good character, help them establish a respected and honorable name by holding to ways that are respectful of others and most honoring to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
