Prayer for My Children's Focus

Author of All Existence, Source of All Blessedness,
May my children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren
     and all their spouses
be always amongst those who not only hear,
     but know Thee,
  who walk with and rejoice in Thee,
  who take Thee at Thy word and find life there.
May they cherish simplicity and godly sincerety of character.
Help them, please, Redeemer God,
  to set their affections on things above,
  to shun forbidden follies and vanities.
O God, make each of them worthy of Thy calling,
  that the name of Jesus may be glorified.
(Paraphrase of Valley of Vision, pgs. 20,21, leather edition)
