A Prayer for the Paths Your Child Takes

Father, I pray You would preserve my children’s paths. Go before them and prepare the way with wisdom and integrity.

Father, when they are faced with choices, I pray they would consult You and other wise counsel before they make any decisions. Anoint them with great insight in choosing the way they should walk and behave. Remind them that Your way is good and right and that You require honesty, humility and mercy.

Father we know that all our ways are in full view of You and that You examine all our paths (Proverbs 5:21). I pray my children will keep their eyes fixed upon You, pursuing heavenly goals and not swerving onto paths that are not good. May they walk in love, always in right standing with You, Father. You have given them a knowledge of good and evil. Keep their feet from walking into ways that could harm them or others. Whatever they do and wherever they go, may they go with great confidence and peace that comes when You say, “This is the way; walk in it” (Isaiah 30:21). In Jesus’ name, Amen.
