Proverbs 22:6, Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.

“The only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government is the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Bible.”

–Benjamin Rush

O Lord, we have failed our children. We have not trained them up in the way they should go. Instead we have let them follow the desires of their heart and Your Word warns that that is the sure way to destruction. Father, forgive us for forsaking the precious treasure You have given us in our children. We now seek Your direction, Lord, to raise them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Help us form new habits based on the
instruction of the Bible. Help us not become discouraged when we fail but rather to try even harder to be diligent in Biblical discipline and instruction which will shape our children into a Godly heritage for Your name’s sake.
