Prayer for our children

Lord Jesus, we come before your throne of grace this morning to make a supplication for our children.  You said in your word that blessed  shall be the fruit of our womb. You also said Lord that if we train up a cild in the way of the Lord, when they are older, they will not depart from theway of the Lord. Our prayer for our children is that you keep them on the straight and narrow path of eternal life. There are a multitude of temptaions and roadblocks to their spiritual growth in the world out there. Our prayer is that you will give them the strenght and the ablity to overcome the temptations and that they will be able to navigate the minefield of the world with caution. We pray they would keep their eyes on you, Jesus, the author and perfector of their faith. We entrust their lives and their spiritual well being into your capable hands. O Lord God, thou hast made the heavens and the earth by thine outstreched arms. Nothing is too difficult for thee. We pray that you would surround our children with godly company. You said in your word bad company currupts good manners. Keep our children safe in the arms of Jesus. No weapon formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that rises up in judgement will be proven wrong. Once again we plead the blood of Jesus as a shiled of protection round about them and ask you Jesus that they conduct their lives worthy of  the calling of God on their lives. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
