31 Days of Prayer For Our Children - Day 26

To Number Our Days

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.(Psalm 90:12) 

Whatever you do, whether it's eating or drinking ore anything else, do it all so as to bring glory to G-d.(1Corinthians 10:31)

Father, I pray for my children to be conscious of the fact that we are not promised tomorrow. The tragic death of six people in our small community last week brought this truth so close to home.   The deaths of young and old people happen every day.  We tend to think we will always have tomorrow.  It is only because of Your grace that we wake up each morning.  Every day is precious, and I pray for my children to recognize this and live their lives for the purpose of giving You glory.

I pray for my children to keep short accounts with others and to make right any strained relationships.  I pray  they will not  allow the sun to go down upon their wrath. 

Father, I pray they will confess their sins to You and ask for and receive Your forgiveness.  Thank You for the promise that You and faithful and just to forgive us our sins.

I pray for my children to be conscious that our purpose in this life is to learn and apply the wisdom of Your Kingdom, and to give You glory in all we we say and do.

I pray these things in the Name of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach.
