I would like to take a moment to pray for my children from the book of Proverbs. God, I pray that all of my children will be "even tempered". I pray they will refrain from being short tempered or hot tempered. God please help my children to be sensible, patient, and to demonstrate self control. When my children are angered, help them to find healthy ways to deal with their emotions. I pray they will choose gentleness and kindness each time. Help them to be drawn to friends that are even tempered and not short tempered.
Here are the scriptures I pray over often for myself. I have titled them "Mommy Notes".
