It’s summertime when the days are longer, and our grandchildren have more free time available to them. Free time, which is often unsupervised.
We pray our grandchildren respect their body as a temple of the Holy Spirit. Let them start by recognizing that their behavior, mannerisms and dress speak volumes about their self-image. Let them “adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control” (I Timothy 2:9).
We pray our grandchildren “walk by the Spirit and… not gratify the desires of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16). Please give them the moral conviction and strength to flee from temptation, thereby abstaining from sexual immorality and keeping themselves pure for marriage.
We pray this in Your precious name.
