Lord, may my child discern the difference between what is good and what is evil, and have the courage to resist temptation and stand firm in the face of opposition. May he experience the joy of obeying You despite peer pressure to conform to this world. May he not buckle under pressure for the sake of being accepted by his friends. May he understand that the consequences of falling into temptation are never worth it. May he realize that living a holy life always glorifies You.
Prayer of the Day
Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I rejoice because of you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil.
As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
—1 Peter 1:14–16
