Collective Worship 30th March 2020
Pray they would lean on God in faith and trust, and not themselves.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
Lord, help my children lean on you even when it doesn’t seem to make sense. Help them to resist the temptation to make their own way. Let them follow you no matter how difficult it may seem.
Collective Worship 27th March 2020
Pray your children would build up and not tear down with their words.
“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Ephesians 4:29
Lord, help my kids speak words that breathe life into others’ souls. Help them be an example of Jesus through their positive words and when appropriate, silence. Let them not use their words to inflate their egos but rather pierce others’ souls so they can grow into mature Christians.
Collective Worship 26th March 2020
Pray they would obey their parents.
“Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.” Colossians 3:20
Father, help my children understand that being a parent means giving them consequences so they can learn and grow up to be independent, successful children. Help them to obey even when it would be easier to rebel. Let this be a lesson not only to obey their parents but all authority.
Collective Worship 23rd March 2020
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.” James 4:10
Lord, humble my kids. Let tough circumstances humble them so they will stay connected to you. Do not let the sin of pride rule their hearts but rather allow bad things to happen so they may cry out to you.
Collective Worship 24th March 2020
Pray they would treat others as they want to be treated.
“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 7:12
Lord, help them to treat others the way they want to be treated. If they want to be loved and shown kindness, then teach them to be loving and kind to others. Help them know that when they are showing others who Christ is.
Collective Worship 25th March 2020
Pray they would learn to speak the truth in love.
“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.” Ephesians 4:15
Lord, help my kids to learn how to speak hard truths to others. Help them to worry less about what others think and more about the spiritual growth of others. May they be blessed with people in their lives who are bold enough to speak the same hard truths to them.
