Father God in heaven, I thank You for giving us children. I pray that You will continue to watch over them and protect them as they grow out and come into our house. Help us to teach them Your ways so that when they grow old, they will understand what it means to have fear in the Lord and they may walk in Your plans and purposes over their lives. Cover them with your most precious blood that no weapon formed against them shall prosper. May they learn to listen and obey their parents as they honor You. These we ask in Your name, Amen.
