“Father God to You I come…”
Our Father who art in heaven, we come to you as fathers and mothers who aren’t in heaven bringing our concerns for our children to You.
As the Psalmist David prayed in Psalm 51, we ask You to search our hearts and see if there be a way in us that is not submitted to you. Create in us a clean heart so that we can then confidently lead our children in Your holy ways.
And, as we forsake the feeding of the flesh today we ask You to see our meager sacrifice as a sign of how serious we are about wanting You to intervene in our children’s lives.
We believe that by coming into Your presence through prayer, we will be changed and in turn our children’s lives will be affected in an eternal way.
Do purify our lips as we call on You on their behalf.
In Christ’s holy, powerful and matchless name,
