A Hand of Protection

Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand [is] a right hand of falsehood: That our sons [may be] as plants grown up in their youth; [that] our daughters [may be] as corner stones, polished [after] the similitude of a palace: Psalm 144:11-12 (KJV)


This day I ask your Hand of protection on our children. I pray that they would be planted deep in Your holy word, held in the palm of Your hand. Teach them, Father, to guard their hearts and remain pure in Your sight.

Thank you for Your never ending mercy and forgiveness, for being a God of second chances.

  1. Martha ~~ I so relate to this prayer today. Our children and grandchildren live in a world I would not have recognized when I was young.
    Lord, I join Martha is praying that you will guard their hearts, and keep them pure...give them wisdom beyond their years to make wise choices.

  2. My father has always promoted us to mingle with all children and then to learn the good and bad, and then my mother taught me wisdom to know that God is the creator of all...SO i never found any falsehood in any children...All were my friends,

    Infact now as an adult, when I doubt if parents were to be blamed...anyway, at this prayer blog I pray for the protection of your children and all children and their parents,



  3. Joining with you Martha asking our Father to teach my grandchildren to guard their hearts and remain pure in Your sight.
