31 Days of Praying for Our Children - Day 7

The fear of the L-rd is the beginning of wisdom.  (Proverb 9:10)

 1My son, if you will receive My words, and hide My commandments with you; 2So that you incline your ear unto wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; 3Yes, if you cry after knowledge, and lift up your voice for understanding; 4If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hid treasures; 5Then you will understand the fear of the L-RD, and find the knowledge of G-d.  (Proverb 2:1-5)

Father, I pray for my children to know a holy fear of You, because You said that is the beginning of wisdom.  To recognize You as Holy, worthy of awe and respect.  The way a child sees her beloved father.  I pray they will  want to please You because of Your tender love, and to be saddened when they have failed to obey You. 

 I pray for You to teach them that holy fear You speak of here.  I pray they will incline their ears to wisdom and apply their hearts to understanding.    I pray they will cry after knowledge and lift up their voices for understanding.  I pray they will seek wisdom as silver, and search for wisdom like they would a hidden treasure, because it truly is.

A great deal of Your Word has been sown in their hearts through the years, Father.  I am confident that Your Word will not return void, but will accomplish what You sent it to do.*  Thank You for that promise.  I pray and believe You will bring those Holy Words to their minds.  Thank You for the blessed hope I know with You as my Father.

*Isaiah 55:11
