My youngest daughter’s graduation is this Thursday. She is getting ready to step out into this cruel world, and she needs our prayers. All those graduating do …
They hear it from the older generation, “These are some of the best days of your life.” They nod and smile but have not grasped the truth of our words. In years to come, they will. Right now they are carefree for the most part. They don’t have responsibilities or the weight of the world like most adults.
Graduation day brings with it so many different emotions.
They did it!!
Moms, Dads, Grandparents, & Siblings – be proud!! Just as I know you are!
They studied hard, they made the grades, and now they are walking across the stage in their caps and gowns – high school graduates!
Little visions of them with their kindergarten caps and gowns fill our heads. We see them as such … not as the grown 18-year-olds they are now!
As they embark on their dreams, we pray for them and for their future. We pray for them with the heartache they will face as everyone does, as well as the great love and happiness they will have as they walk into adulthood and throughout the rest of their lives.
We ask for God’s hand of protection over them now and in the days to come. Father, bless them in ALL that they do! Shelter them and go alongside them. Comfort them in times of trouble, and wrap Your loving arms around them when they need it the most.
When they are unsure of themselves and what the future holds, remind them of Jeremiah 29:11. You have great plans for their lives, and we trust in YOU, Lord, to show them the way.
We pray they will always seek to honor and bring glory to YOUR name.
Be with them now and always, Lord. May they be filled with love from You and know their families love them very much.
Remind them that no matter what happens, they can always count on their families and no matter what, they will have our love …
Always & Forever!
