Dear Lord,

There are so many opinions and ideas about how I should raise my children. Lord, the only opinion I care about is yours. Lead me, guid me, teach me how to be a godly father. Help me to raise my children with wisdom, patience, gentleness and understanding. I desire that they would learn from us how to know you and walk with you. I also desire that they would learn what a godly marriage looks like from watching me and their mother love each other.

In Jesus’ name, amen!
