Prayer for My Sons

Heavenly Father,

I come before You today to lift up my sons. I entrust them to Your care and protection, knowing that You are a loving and faithful God. I pray that You would give them wisdom and discernment, and guide them in the path that You have for their lives.

I ask that You would give them strength and courage to stand firm in their faith, and to boldly proclaim the Gospel to those around them. May they be strong and loving leaders in their homes, churches, and communities.

I pray that You would bless them with good health and prosperity, and that they would have a heart for serving You and others. May they be a light to the world, shining Your love and truth to all who come in contact with them.

I give You all the glory and honor for the wonderful work that You are doing in my sons’ lives, and I trust in Your perfect plan for them.

In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
