A prayer for my kids to serve God

Lord in Heaven,


I ask for your Holy Spirit to quicken my kids' hearts toward your mission.
I pray for them to love you from genuine thanksgiving and praise,
not from obligation, selfishness, or pride.
May they truly believe how much they need you in every facet of their lives.
Convict them when they relegate you to Sunday mornings or small group.

Fan the flame of service in my children.
Stir in them a desire to serve others,
to disciple others,
to help others.
Give them compassionate hearts and eyes to see the world.

Let every conversation, 
every relationship,
every media post,
every book,
every mission statement
be filtered through your calling on their lives
to love you
and to love others.

This is all I want--
I want kids who are completely committed to you.

In Jesus' powerful name,
Amen.


"We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God." (Colossians 1:9-10)
