Praying from 3 John 1:4 relating to Joy, Truth, Parenting.

Dear Lord, I thank you for the promise that there is no greater joy than hearing about my children walking in truth. I claim this promise over my children and ask that you guide them in the path of righteousness. May they always seek your truth and follow your ways. I pray that they will be a shining light in this world, reflecting your love and grace to those around them. Thank you for the privilege of being a parent and for the joy that comes from seeing our children grow in faith. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Verse: I have no greater joy than this: to hear about my children walking in truth.
3 John 1:4

This is a Promise. The verse is a statement of joy from the author about hearing that his children are walking in truth. There is no command given to the reader.
