Ave Maria Meditations
Dear God, another day is ahead, and once again, we want to release our grandchildren and children who we love so incredibly much, straight into Your tender care. Because we know that’s the best place they could ever be. Thank You in advance for all that You have in store, for this day, for this season, and for their entire lives
We ask for Your wisdom and direction over their days, that You would give them understanding beyond what their years say they should even know. We ask that You would remind them again of how very much You love them. We pray that they find security and confidence fully in You, knowing that You are trustworthy and true.
We ask for Your peace to cover them. We pray for laughter and joy to fill their day. We ask that You would give them boldness and courage to face the challenges set before them, with the confidence and calmness that can only come from Your Holy Spirit.
Dear Lord, we pray that You would teach them Your ways, help them to be respectful to others, obedient to Your paths, and have a desire to learn Your word. Give them a compassionate spirit, and a willingness to look beyond the outward appearance of another to the deeper heart.
On the days that they’re struggling, we pray that You would bring wrong to the light, offering Your reassurance of grace, restoration, and forgiveness when they mess up and lose their way. Surround them with friends and leaders who will constantly challenge them to press closer to You.
Please keep them safe today. We ask that You would protect them from any harm or evil intent that would lurk close by or attack them while they’re unaware. Cover them in Your care and hide them in the safety of Your powerful presence. We pray for You to protect their coming and going, and to remind them that You’re always with them. Give them alertness, spiritual discernment, and wisdom to avoid temptation and to make the best choices. Give them a heart for Your word and for Your ways.
