It’s often been said children are our future and our most valuable asset. They’re also incredible blessings from God. Ones we as parents want to protect. On this page you’ll find websites, safety tips, articles and statistics to help you as parents be armed with the knowledge and practical strategies to help keep your children safe.
We’ll start with the first and most important thing we can do as parents— pray with and for our children.
Please join with me in praying for our children…
You are good and You are the Perfect Parent we so desperately need. We know in our heads that You love us and You love our children. We also know we live in a dangerous world where it’s hard not to worry and difficult to release our little ones into Your care. Daddy, open our eyes to the truth. Help us see Your hand of protection and call out to You. Father, protect our children. Put your angels around about them. Protect our children’s hearts, spirits, minds, and bodies. Teach us to teach our children about You, how to run to You, and how to live in this world keeping their hands clinging to Yours. Thank You for Your promises of protection and for your warnings that in this world we will have trouble, but You have overcome this world. And You will never leave us or forsake us. Help us as parents experience Your love and rest in Your arms as we entrust You with the children You have given us for such a time as this.
In Jesus Name we pray. Amen
