Our Children to His Care

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jer. 29: 11).

Dear Lord, we lift up our children to You. We love them and their children. We see the good in them all, and plead with You not to let this harsh world rob them of it.

You made them, Lord. You know their strengths and weaknesses, better even than we do. You know their needs. Keep them under Your wing, whatever their ages. Protect and guide them in ways we cannot, Lord.

Give them courage, in the face of adversity and change. Give them strength, in the face of impossible odds. Give them the rest necessary to restore minds and bodies. And, please, Lord, give them hope. Not a foolish, groundless hope. But a hope they can rely on, because it comes with a promise from You that they will see it fulfilled.

As difficult as it is for us, we give our beloved children and grandchildren over to Your care. We leave them in Your loving hands, knowing that is the very best place they can be.

Amen

    • It always makes me happy when that kind of “coincidence” occurs. I like to believe there is God’s hand in it.

      Love,
      A. ❤
