I didn't just want Eric and I to pray these prayers we wanted to get JH involved. So I cut out shapes from construction paper and wrote a different Scripture inside each shape (will post pictures later.... little man is sleeping).
Anyhoo... thought you might want to pray these prayers over your child (or future) children!
1. That John Hunter will know Christ as Savior early in life. (Psalm 6:3 and 2Timothy 3:15)
2. That John Hunter will be protected from the evil one in each area of his life...spiritual, emotional and physical. (John 12:15)
3. That John Hunter will have a responsible attitude in all his interpersonal relationships.
4. That John Hunter will respect those in authority over him. (Romans 13:1)
5. That John Hunter will desire the right kinds of friends and be protected from the wrong
friends. (Proverbs 1:10-11)
