There comes a time as a parent that we realize we cannot control everything that happens in our children’s lives. As much as I want to protect my little one forever from the things of this world, I know I can’t. What I can do is pray. Pray for guidance from my God to lead my husband and I as we raise our children. Pray that we will make the right decisions for each individual child He gifts us with. Pray that our little one will come to know Christ.
I tell you, the scariest thing about being a christian parent, is my child’s salvation. I want him to know Christ, but I also want it to be his decision…his choice…his faith. I pray so hard that the love of Christ will grow in his heart.
As parents, we have the greatest influence on our children. They model us. They follow us. They watch us. They are little reflections of us.
There is a mighty power behind prayer. I pray for my husband and myself, as his parents, that we may lead and guide him in the ways of the Lord. And I pray specifically for my little one, because it’s one of the greatest things I can do for my child as a mother.
I pray that this sweet little printable Praying for your little boy will encourage you to pray for your sweet little man.
And momma’s with little girls, I have a special printable for you too. 🙂 It will be available next week!
