Prayer for Our Children

As we pray for our miliary and their safety, let’s remember the children of our land who find themselves on the “front line” with no experience to handle the frontal attack of the world. Let us pray:
“Our loving father, Daddy to our children as well as Father to all of us, Holy is your name. May your will be done in our lives as it is in Heaven. We come before your throne, oh God, asking for the safety of our children. Our little ones find themselves with a parent away at war; they find themselves in the middle of a war in their own homes; and they find themselves in the midst of war on their own streets and in their own communities. Safety, security, and predictability are what they need and deserve. We ask that you wrap your loving arms around them and give them comfort. We pray that you will send your angels, to stand guard around each of our children, to stand in the doorway to their safe place and face the world on their behalf. We pray for the safety and sanity of their parents, that these little ones may be lifted up so that their needs and security are primary in the hearts of their parents and the minds of all those around them. Forgive us when we put “self” first: self-needs, self-indulgence, and self-interests. And, deliver us and our children safely on the other side of the river called “me”. We pray that your will is welcome in our lives and we give you all the praise and glory, both now and in our future days. In the name of your precious son, Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
