As our much loved children head back to school, take a moment to pray these confessions for parents. (From The Secret Power of Speaking God’s Word by Joyce Meyer)
My children are the head, and not the tail; an they shall be above only, and they shall not be beneath, because they heed the commandments of the Lord their God and are watchful to do them.
I am always a positive encourager. I edify and build up; I never tear down or destroy.
My children have a teachable spirit.
-Proverbs 14:16 (AMP)
My children make right choices according to the Word of God.
My children have the spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of God Their eyes have been flooded with light, so that they can know and understand the hope to which He has called them, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones).
