A Parent’s Prayer: God’s Light

Posted by Ron Moore on

Psalm 118:26-29
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD. From the house of the LORD we bless you. The LORD is God, and he has made his light shine on us. With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession up to the horns of the altar. You are my God, and I will praise you; you are my God, and I will exalt you. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

The light of the Lord! It reveals the path ahead and illuminates our hearts. It lets us know when we are cruising on the right path and when we have taken a dangerous detour. We pray that God’s light always shines on us. That’s a great prayer to pray for our children and grandchildren. 

Heavenly Father,

Thank you God, for making Your light shine on (children/grandchildren).

Shine Your light on their hearts…let them see their sin and turn to You.
Shine Your light on their paths…let them see the right road to travel.
Shine Your light on their temptations…let them see the way to escape.
Shine Your light on their weaknesses…show them their desperate need for You.
Shine Your light on their failures…reveal the hard lessons.
Shine Your light on their successes…let them see that You cause each one.
Shine Your light on their education…let them find Your calling.
Shine Your light on their friendships…let them find iron-sharpeners.
Shine Your light on their relationships…let them see the rewards of purity.
Shine Your light on their marriages…let them love and honor their spouses.
Shine Your light on their vocations…let them see how to minister at work.
Shine Your light on their disappointments…let them know Your encouragement.
Shine Your light on their loneliness…let them know Your presence.
Shine Your light on their doubts…reveal that You can be trusted.
Shine Your light on their sin…let them see the way back home.
Shine Your light on their fears…let them find Your strength and comfort.
Shine Your light on their lives…let them always follow hard after You.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.
