Guide him in all he says and does, and give him a very strong conscience to help him make the right choices. Show him how to stand alone and do the right thing even when it’s not easy or even when others choose to do the wrong thing. Put positive friends in his path, but also allow him to show love to those who need You in their lives. Give him a heart to include others and encourage them. Give him a heart to love, to be helpful, to be kind. Allow him to be a positive influence on others.
Guard his heart and his mind against the bad things that are in this world. Protect him each and every day while he’s in that school building or anytime that he is away from me. I know that You love Ben even more than I do, so God I give Ben to you. Put him in Your loving, protective care.
