Prayer of the Day - When I Need Grace in Discipline

Dear Lord,
Please give me eyes to see how my spiritual character is so much of the time mirrored in my children's actions as they watch me so diligently for guidance.  Grant me Your grace in the teaching and discipline of them today, knowing that many times it is as if I am disciplining my own spiritual actions through their physical beings.  Remind me that to discipline them in an unbiblical way will only provoke them to wrath as they see my spiritual inconsistency.  You are faithful, and it is Your gentle loving kindness that draws me to repentance.  Help me to mirror Your Father-heart of this to my children today.  In Jesus' name, Amen!
