“Grant, lord, that my children may learn
to ‘live a life of love,’ through the spirit who dwells in them”
(ephesians 5:2; Galatians 5:22)
Living a life activated by loving-kindness in the keeping of God’s commandments, following the example of Jesus Christ, and being tenderhearted to forgive is a sweet-smelling sacrifice to God. I pray that my children will love others despite their differences. And, while I know that my children will not be “friends” with every peer, my prayer is that they are kind to all as they share the love of Christ.
