Prayer for a powerful child

Image
In 2 Timothy, Paul writes his last letter to Timothy, his spiritual son. They long for each other's company. Paul knows he is going to be soon martyred by the cruel Roman emperor, Nero. He knows he might never see Timothy again. He knows that Timothy, as a Christian pastor, is afraid. (Who wouldn't be?) In the prayer below, I've taken Paul's final encouragements to Timothy and modeled them into a prayer that all parents can pray over their children.  Dear God, Jehovah, You are powerful and mighty. Nothing can stand against you. You love my child even more than I do, so I am giving you my most earnest request. Thank you for my child's sincere faith. Guard it and develop it. Thank you for the opportunity you have given me as his parent to pour into him. Help me to never be discouraged or dismayed by results. You are alive and working in his life. I pray for my child to be drawn to your Word--to saturate himself in it. Holy Spirit, draw him to yourself. Mak
