In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the wicked Foe may have no power over me. Amen.

Below is a prayer quoted from "Praying The Bible for Your Children" authored by David & Heather Kopp, Published by WaterBrook Press.
Praying from Psalm 19
Today I pray that my children would love Your Word.
Becasue "the law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul," may my children
realize how much they need Your refreshment (v.7)
Because "the statutes of the LORD are trustworthy," may my children take
risks to build their lives on Your Word. (v.7)
Because "the precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart," may my
children take genuine delight in studying the Bible. (v.8)
Because "the commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes," may
my kids use Your Word to make important decisions. (v.8)
Because "the fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever," may my children
revere, honor, and worship You all of their lives. (v.9)
Because "the ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous," may
my children rely on them to test every other belief, philosophy, or lifestyle
they encounter (v.9)
Because your ordinances "are sweeter than honey," may my children crave the
Bible more than any other book (v.10)
I pray, Lord, that by loving Your Word, my children will receive important
warnings about life and be blessed with great personal reward (v.11)
He who is too busy to pray will be too busy to live a holy life. Satan had rather we let the grass grow on the path to our prayer chamber than anything else.
