Prayer for the Precious Ones
THE PRECIOUS ONES: The precious ones include my children, my grandchildren, all descendants who come after me, all my grandparents descendants now living or yet to be born, my husband, siblings, in laws.
And you, dear reader and all those who are precious to you. God bless you as you pray here.
From Psalm 78
6 He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children,
6 so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children.
7 Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.
From Psalm 80
Restore us, O God; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.
Oh God, we love you and thank you so much for this beautiful Monday that You have given us.
We worship You and give You all praise.
You see the precious ones--those our hearts are so burdened for.
Would you restore them, O God, and make Your face shone on them-- That they may be saved--saved from the ravages of sin, from a life of no meaning, from the trapper's snare, from a life of not walking in the Spirit-- saved from themselves--
May each one determine to follow You with all his/her soul, mind, body and spirit-- May they want to know You from the inside out and adhere to all Your commandments--
We love You, Father and trust that You gave us the commandments that would lead us to abundant life-- Because Your commandments are perfect, O God--
We pray that we would love You above everything else-- Make that our desire, O God, our Strength and Redeemer.
In Jesus' Name I pray.
