Dear God,

We praise you for your love and faithfulness. We thank you for your protection and care over our families. Thank you for giving us the power to love well, and the wisdom to lead and teach our children. We know you are for us. We know that you will fight for our families today. You are the Redeemer, the Restorer, and the Friend. We believe you have only good in store for us. We confess, some days, parenting is tough. Many days we can feel anxious or overwhelmed. We ask that you would make us more like you, more aware of your constant presence in our lives. Help us to release our children to you, so that you are free to fully accomplish all that you desire, in them, through them. Please fill our families with your truth and cover us with your favor.

Lord, we pray for these blessings over our children, today, and every day.
