“We will not hide them from their children, but will tell a future generation the praiseworthy acts of the Lord, His might, and the wondrous works He has performed.”Psalm 78:4
Father, I pray that we will not keep Your wonders to ourselves, but that we will share them with our children. I pray that the next generation will know what You have done. I pray they will know Your power and Your great love, because we have told them of all of Your goodness toward us.
“so that a future generation—children yet to be born—might know. They were to rise and tell their children so that they might put their confidence in God and not forget God’s works, but keep His commands.”Psalm 78:6-7
Lord, I pray that our children and our grandchildren, the generations of those faithful to You, will put their confidence in You and walk in Your ways, because they have been told of Your wonders, Your goodness, and Your sovereignty.
Make us Your storytellers, Lord. May we tell Your story more than we tell our own. May it be the wonders, and the exploits of You that we pass on. I pray that we will be a people who proclaim all that You have done, more than we tell of all that we have done.
I pray that our children will know how You saved us and how You have loved us. I pray they will know how You have forgiven our sins, and why. I pray they will hear of how You calmed our storms, delivered us from oppression, and brought us out of slavery. I pray that our children and their children will know of Your great mercies and the power of Your presence.
I pray they will know, because we have told them. And I pray they will then know for themselves, and tell their own children. May we pass on the stories of You from one generation to the next. I pray that we will repeat Your Words to our children, talking about them in our homes, and wherever we go, when we lie down at night, and when we get up in the morning. (Deuteronomy 6:7)
From one generation to the next, Lord, may You be known!
In the Name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
