Lord, I ask for wisdom and discernment for my child. In a world that is increasingly complex and confusing, I pray that my child will be granted the ability to see through deception and clearly identify worldviews, ideas, and values that are opposed to Yours. I pray my child will always know the right thing to do, and be able to do it courageously and quickly, for Your glory. And may You fill him with joy as he walks in Your path.
Prayer of the Day
Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me and teach me your law. I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws. I hold fast to your statutes, Lord; do not let me be put to shame. I run in the path of your commands, for you have broadened my understanding.
This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister.
—1 John 3:10
