The Journey with Ron Moore


A Prayer for Our Children's Success | Psalm 118:15-25

Today's Passage: Psalm 118:15-25
Key Verses: Psalm 118:22-25

The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. The LORD has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad. LORD, save us! LORD, grant us success!

Today's psalm reminds us that it is the Lord who does "mighty things!" He is the One who has opened the "gates of righteousness." Although he was rejected and put to death, now he has become the "cornerstone" that holds our relationship with God together.

The psalmist ends this portion with a prayer for something we all want...success. However, sometimes God's view of victory looks a bit different than ours. Here's a prayer to pray for your children and grandchildren. Let's pray that God will grant them his success.

I pray that you would grant your success to (say their names).

Give them success in the lessons of losing.
Give them success in the humility of winning.
Give them success in serving others.
Give them success in befriending the lonely.
Give them success in caring for the unfortunate.

Give them success in choosing friends.
Give them success in using time wisely.
Give them success in reading your Word daily.
Give them success in prayer.

Give them success in the pain of failure.
Give them success in the accolades of achievement.
Give them success in obeying your Word.
Give them success in repentance.

Give them success at following hard after you.
Give them success at using the gifts you've given them.
Give them success in standing for you
...even if it means standing alone.

In Jesus' name.
