I’m not asking you to take them out of the world,
but to keep them safe from the evil one.
They do not belong to this world any more than I do.
Make them holy by your truth;
teach them your word, which is truth.
Lord, oh how we would love for you to remove the evil from around our children. This world is so evil and there are so many dangers that our children can face; even just going to school or work, they can be exposed to such evil. I pray that you will protect them from the Evil One, bring to their minds Your Words that will strengthen them and help them resist the devil so that he will flee.
We have given our children to you and we trust them in Your Hands today.
I pray that they will rest in Your truth which they have been taught. I pray they will take that truth and make it their own. And use it to become holy in Your sight.
