Protecting My Kids From Corruption

Dear God,

There are a lot of temptations facing my DS and DD in today’s world – stuff like drugs, smoking, drinking, foul language, extramarital and illicit worldly activities, a whole lot more one could think of... When they both become teenagers, I also know that peer pressure will be stronger and more dififficult to resist. Satan is seductive and inviting as he will always try to lead Your children away from You.

At this point in their young lives, I want to start praying for protection for my kids, Lord. I cannot be with them all the time. I can only try, in my presence, to instill godly values to them, and arm them both with the spiritual armor they need. But the enemy is a big deceiver. So I ask that You send Your Spirit with them, whenever, and wherever they go, especially while in school – being at work or play... Please always bring to their minds Your Words spoken to them in their quiet times each day. Keep them both from being corrupted and lead them always back to Your truth.

Lord, as I remember Abraham’s obedience when he placed Isaac on the altar of sacrifice for You, I also place my DS and DD before You. Please continue to protect them, Father. And thank You for keeping them in Your care.

But I am afraid
that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning,
your minds may somehow be led astray
from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:3
