Is it the desire of your heart that your child would be an example of Jesus to others? This prayer for your child’s example will open paths for them to live for Jesus in every area of their life.
A Prayer for the Example Your Child Is
Father, thank You for sending Your Son, the perfect example for us to fashion our lives after. I pray that my children would find great value and purpose in living a life that brings honor and glory to You.
Father, even children are known by their conduct. Help my children be imitators of Jesus, living unashamed and blameless before You. Guide my children to pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace (2 Timothy 2:22) so that their ways may be a good example to those around them even though they are young.
Father, when my children are in hard situations give them the courage to do the right thing. Strengthen them to stand for what is correct in Your eyes even when it may not be the popular or easy thing to do. Make my children bold and wise, always choosing to shine their lights for what is good and upstanding. Make them leaders in honoring You, so others may be encouraged to walk uprightly as well.
I lift my children to You, Father, asking that You guide them in the ways they should go. May they do their best to present themselves as those approved, as workmen who do not need to be ashamed, who handle the Word of God correctly (2 Timothy 2:15), and who willingly walk in the ways You lead . In Jesus’ name, Amen.
