Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion! For he strengthens the bars of your gates; he blesses your children within you.
Bless my children, Lord.
Tony, Heidi, Sandy and Marieke: that they would enjoy being together today, that they would realize that you are in control of their lives and that they owe all to you.
Kim, Jeff and Alexis: Lord, to learn to depend upon your goodness and your provision. Give them a sense of your purpose in their lives and show them that You are calling them into a ministry as You called us.
David, Lynne, Libby Sam and Jack: that David will turn to you and Lynne will return. That those precious children will find you and that you will keep them safe from the evils of this world. That those siren songs of sex, drugs and self-choice will not bring them down to the pits, but they will draw near to you.
