Thank You, Heavenly Father for giving Julie the ability and diligence to memorize Your Word. I pray that she will now hide these verses in her heart so that she might not sin against You. May she think about these words day and night. May Your words give Julie joy, encouragement, and hope in You. May Your words cause Julie to love and trust and follow Jesus every day.
And I pray that everyone in our class will desire and diligently work at memorizing Your wonderful Word. Help each of us to love You and Your Word more and more! May we taste and see that Your Word is sweeter than honey and brings joy to the heart.Including this type of prayer serves to point both the child being recognized and the students in the class Godward in their focus. It helps affirm and recognize diligence on the part of the child while pointing to the ultimate source and empowerment of his or her ability, as well as reminding the class of main purpose for memorizing the Word.
