Prayers for daughters

As the father of a daughter myself I found this from Tim Challies on how he prays for both of his daughters poignant and encouraging.

“And finally, I pray that God will protect my girls from God. Ultimately, God saves people from himself. R.C. Sproul says it well: ‘The grand paradox or supreme irony of the Christian faith is that we are saved both by God and from God.'”

“I long for God to protect my girls from his own wrath which he must pour out on those who will not put their faith in Christ.”
