Every child is a precious gift from God He has entrusted us with to love, nurture, protect, and teach of Him, the creator of all things. What a precious gift each child is and what an awesome responsibility. Let us teach them of Him and let our lives be a shining example of who He is and of His wonderful love and grace.
We thank You for the gift You have been so gracious to bestow upon us. We thank You for entrusting them to us. Help us to not take our responsibility for them lightly. Please guide our every word and action so that we may be a shining example of You before our children and grandchildren. Teach us Your ways so that we may teach them. Guard them and protect them both born and unborn.
In Jesus Precious Name. Amen
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 (KJV)
Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it: That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey. Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
