Dear Lord,

Thank you for my children. Thank you for trusting us as parents. God, I need your help to know how to be a loving and Godly father to them. I want to have compassion for them, but I also want to know how to discipline them without breaking their spirit. God, it is hard being a parent. It is hard being patient and understanding with them. This must be how you feel sometimes with us as your children. I just want to make you proud, Lord, with how I raise my children.

In Jesus’ name, amen!
