Dear heavenly Father, thank you for allowing me to have children and grandchildren. Lord, help me to be the proper kind of parent who loves her children enough to discipline them. Forgive me when I have failed my children. Help me to be patient, loving, and kind in all disciplinary acts. Lord, I pray for the parents and grandparents of this generation that they may have wisdom, love and guidance in all of their relationships with their children and grandchildren. Lord, give our children a submissive heart and spirit toward authority so that our society can function in peace and order. May we all have the fear of the Lord in our lives which causes us to respect all authority that God has ordained. I ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
