Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- February 15

Dear Lord, help us as parents to spend more time with our children, sometimes with each one alone. Help us to get to know each child better, to understand his or her thinking and needs. Let us listen to their opinions, and where they are off the track, their actions threatening to be non-productive or detrimental to their health or safety, let us explain why, and take a stand as parents. Let us pray together, and explain not only the hopes that we as parents have for their lives and conduct, but all that You too envision for them. ... Open their eyes to see that hasty decisions, without seeking Your guidance, could cause life-long consequences. ... Oh Lord, be with all families who love You, as they seek to live according to Your will.

In Jesus' holy name we pray. Amen.
