Prayer

 

 

“Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.”  Proverbs 17:6

 

Father God, we pray for families at this time, remembering the many pressures that they face. Would you give parents wisdom and patience in bringing up their children. Be with grand parents; for those who care for grand children, and for those who long for their children and grand-children to know you and trust you as they have. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
