Blessings for our children

Shortly before he dies, King David pronounces blessings on his son Solomon – blessings any parent can adapt for their children…

My son [or, My daughter],
the Lord be with you,
and may you have success…
May the Lord give you discretion
and understanding… 
Be strong and courageous.  
Do not be afraid or discouraged.

Acknowledge the God of your [parents / family / brothers and sisters in Christ], and serve Him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought.  If you seek Him, He will be found by you.
