Dear Lord,

Thank you for allowing me to be raised by a mother and father who love you and follow you. I prayer that I can lead my children in a way that teaches them to love you in a deep and real way. I pray that I would teach them by example and not by my words alone. I want them to see what it looks like to have a real and lasting relationship with you Lord. I also pray that I would learn to love my wife purely and righteously so that my children would learn from my example how to love their future spouse and others the same way.

In Jesus’ name, amen!
