Good morning, Father.

During 2016 help me to be faithful in my prayer walk. It is most important that we who serve preschoolers remember to pray for the next generation. Teach me how to pray for these children.

Father, last week I prayed that these young children would begin to understand the difference between right and wrong, good and bad, and yes and no. The concept of sin is difficult for children this age to grasp as they are so literal in their thinking. I am praying that these children will be caught when guilty–whether it be an innocent impulse of taking gum when leaving the checkout counter with mom or slipping an awesome piece of Lego in a pocket upon leaving the classroom. My desire is that children be caught and lovingly disciplined in those teachable moments so that they learn that You desire honesty as they grow. Help them to grow as Jesus grew.

“It was good for me to be afflicted so that I could learn Your statutes.” (Psalm 119:71, HCSB)

In the powerful name of Jesus,
