Teach Them To Obey

January 1, 2011

Teach Them to Obey

Father in heaven,

We know that it is pleasing to you

When children obey their parents.

Just as you lovingly discipline your children,

Help me to teach my children to obey.

Help us train my children our submit

To us as parents

And to you as Lord.

May their obedience spring not from fear or duty,

But from your life in them and their love of you.

May they never fixate on your rules

And forget your character;

Let them instead recognize that you are good

And you do good, and all of your commands are good.

Amen.

Ephesians 6:1; Colossians 3:20; 1 John 5:2; Hebrews 12:7-11; Psalm 119:68
