Job 23:1-27:23;  2 Corinthians 1:12-2:11;  Psalm 41:1-13;  Proverbs 22:5-6

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”

Proverbs 22:5-6

 

Wisdom giver from on high,

give us wisdom

words to say

acts to follow

in your way

so that our children

will come to know

You

as the Way, the Truth

and the Life

and though their lives

will take many turns

may they always

find their way

back

to You.

Bless parents, teachers,

coaches, mentors,

guardians

and all those shape

the lives of those

in their care,

for Jesus’ sake,

Amen.
