E is for Emotions
Ask God for an extra measure of sympathy and discernment as you parent your child through puberty and beyond. Pray that He would keep the lines of communication open as you discuss with them the fact that hormones not only affect the way their bodies grow, but the way they think, as well. Ask Him to help your teens navigate those changes wisely, while nurturing the fruit of the Spirit, including love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and (especially) self-control. Pray that they would not be ruled by their feelings, but would take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer
2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
El Hayyay, God of My Life (Psalm 42:8); we come in a spirit of oneness giving thanks for controlling the communications the proceed from our children's' mouths in public and private and the communications that reach their eyes and ears. We praise you for the meditations of their hearts being acceptable in thy sight. We declare blessings for the casting down of imaginations and everything that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and for the bringing into captivity every thought of obedience to Christ. This we pray with an anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ our Savior, Amen.
