Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the blessings of children and college! I am so thankful that my last baby is going off to college and not to war, jail, or any horrific COVID-19 hospital situation…so blessed for this gift! Please, Lord, continue to wrap Joey in your loving arms, lead him to holy relationships and activities, help him to pursue you and your righteousness in all that he purports to do. May his desires be your passions placed within him for fruition of goodness and delight. Prayers that Joey may always feel your loving presence in his journey. There will be times that he will be lonely, and I pray, dear God, that you would make your loving presence known, that Joey may be continually reminded that he may cling to you in all situations, times, and reach and communicate with you in prayer, that your are his safe harbor for comfort and protection. Please give him the motivation to continue performing well in his studies, to continue to bring others to a relationship with You through his love for others, and to keep Joey’s mind, heart, and soul at peace always that no matter the difficulties or the challenges that the world will try to ensnare him in, that he is always a free child of God, that his life has already been paid for on the cross, and to you alone does he belong… may Joey reside in that truth and not run after the destructive clambering around him whether it be material possessions, social media entrapment, or any ungodly snare…please encircle Joey in your hedge of protection and keep him safe from all evil. Blessed be your holy name, O God, as you hear my prayer, and lovingly answer your daughter. Please continue to bless Joey in his college journey with lifelong godly friends, good relationships, and with learning to help him navigate his path. May you help keep Joey’s compass straight as he considers future suitors that may present as the wife you are lovingly preparing for him. Please let him remember to honor her as Christ does the church. Please also equip Joey to continue to do your work, and let him never forget that he is here to honor you and love you above all things…the rest is just stuff to help him to be able to love and respect you the best way that he can. May Joey never doubt himself and his heavenly inheritance already claimed by your Son, and may he go forward in confidence and in faith, as he continues to remember that he is a prince, the son of you, our living God. Please hear my prayer, O Lord, and thank you for always making the path straight for those who love you. We honor you above all things and beings, to you we give all praise, to you we love wholly and infinitely, our Creator our loving Father from whom all things come. Blessed be your name. In love, faith, and hope, we graciously thank you and say AMEN!!!
