Lord, help my child to develop patience and self-control, resisting taking short-cuts or making hasty decisions in important areas of his life. Grant him the discipline to wait for Your answer to his prayers, and to follow Your leading. Give him the power and moral courage to resist worldly pleasures, temptations, and other ungodly influences. Help him to stand strong on Your Word and not to succumb to false teachings and the subjective standards of this world.
Prayer of the Day
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
—2 Timothy 1:7
Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.
