Praying with Abraham for our children

Abraham, the great patriarch of three major religions, talked with God often, but the Bible records very few of his actual prayers. Here’s one we, too, might pray for our children.
Genesis 17:18 – a prayer of Abraham
Oh, that my child might live in Your presence, Lord, and be under Your blessing!
