Praying for Your Child's Growth in Grace

Holy One,
How can we who are accustomed to doing evil do good? A leopard could as easily change his spots (Jeremiah 13:23). Unless you should change us, we shall never be free of our desperate wickedness. We confess the sinful nature of __________ and ask that you would change him/her. Conform him/her to the likeness of your son; having called him/her, justify and glorify him/her (Romans 8:30). May you, the God of peace, sanctify him/her through and through; may his/her whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We know that you are faithful and you will do this (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24). May it be so in __________ 's life. Transform him/her into Christ's likeness with ever-increasing glory (2 Corinthians 3:18). Take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5); make every word pleasant in your sight. May the world look upon his/her deeds—done in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit—and praise his/her Father in heaven (1 Peter 2:12). May his/her life reflect your holiness, offered as a perpetual sacrifice for the honor of your glorious name.
Amen.
