It’s prom in Jackson tonight and I felt lead to this scripture and stirred to pray for the kids:
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. [Numbers 6:24-26]
Father God, I ask for your blessing upon the prom kids this night as You keep them in Your loving and safe hands.
Father God, I ask You to shine Your beautiful face upon them that they may reflect Your glory in their decisions.
Father God, I ask You to be gracious to them that they may be gracious and generous with the respect they show one another.
Father God, I ask You to lift Your countenance upon these kids that they may know Your love.
Father God, I ask You to give them peace and encourage them to remain faithful to You.
Holy God, may the evil one not get a foothold in their hearts and may the kids be granted wisdom in the things they can control but may Your strong hand guide them and protect them in the things they can’t control.
And lastly, Lord God Almighty, please grant all those parents out there Your peace as they wait for their beloved children to return home safely in their arms.
May Your holy will be done, in Jesus name I pray, Amen.
