Keep Me Real Lord!
Lord, thank you for the privilege of having a daughter to influence. It terrifies and excites me all at the same time. As I learn what your love is like please help me to model that to my little girl. Help me to love her mother in such a way that my daughter finds comfort and security in our relationship. Help me to be a team player in the parenting, the disciplining and the raising of our daughter. Help me to introduce her to you, the greatest lover of all time.
