a prayer for you my child
I pray that you would know the God who made you.
That you would love Him and trust him to look after you.
I pray that you would always find joy even when things are tricky.
I pray that you would take chances. Do things that interest you regardless of what other people tell you is the right thing to do.
I pray that you would not be too scared to admit you are wrong when you do something that interests you and it blows up in your face.
I pray that nothing will hurt you but I know this prayer is futile. I pray that you have the strength to overcome those hurts.
I pray that you would love your Mama and Dad. That we would love you and that you would never be afraid to talk to us.
I pray that you would be healthy, energetic and fun. That the world might be your oyster.
I pray that you will have a contagious laughter, a gentle spirit and an inquisitive mind.
I pray that you will have friends to love and be loved by. That your family will adore you and that you will have siblings to boss around.
I pray that you will know that Jesus died for you and that fact will change your life. I pray that it deeply impacts you and you will live your life for him.
