Dear heavenly Father, we thank you for the blessing of children. Lord, help all Christian parents to heed the Bible’s instructions for rearing their children. Father, there are many different voices in the world telling us how to do things; however, we want to know what the Bible says about child rearing. Lord, since You created us, then surely Your advice would be the best advice to follow, as You know how to do all things in perfection. Give us divine wisdom in the area of child rearing and give us grace to spank our children when they need that discipline. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
