Help my children develop a strong self identity that is rooted in the realization that they are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus.
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
* I changed this from "self-esteem" to "self identity". The whole self-esteem thing just makes me nauseous. Our kids will get a lot further in life by esteeming others. They don't need any more encouragement to think highly of themselves. 'Nuff said.
