Praying for Your Child's Purity

Alpha and Omega,
In dazzling brilliance and purity are you arrayed: head and hair as white as snow, eyes blazing like fire, voice like the sound of rushing waters, you stand enthroned in the majesty of your holiness while the saints and angels declare your glory (Revelation 1:14). And we are to be holy like you! Purify us, precious Jesus. Cleanse us that we may be clean; wash us, that we may be whiter than snow (Psalm 51:7). Protect __________ from being soiled by a world steeped in sin and debauchery. Give him/her a spirit to stand firm in the face of so much temptation (Matthew 6:13); legs to flee when facing sexual immorality (1 Corinthians 6:18); eyes committed not to look lustfully on any divine image-bearer (Job 31:1); and a mind renewed by your transforming power (Romans 12:2). Teach him/her your perfect plan for marriage, the union of two souls and bodies in heavenly bliss, and keep him/her from ever diminishing that pleasure by illicit means. Make him/her only to rejoice in the wife/husband of his/her youth, captivated always by her/his love, satisfied by her/his body alone (Proverbs 5:18-19). A person's ways are in full view of the Lord (Proverbs 5:21); may __________ live with this truth in mind at all times.
