Praying For Our Children…Every Day


Tuesday 8/21/2018

Speak tenderly to my children after You chastise them so they will be more open to receive Your forgiveness and subsequently obey Your voice. Give me a tender spirit also, so my discipline will be an earthly example of the freedom that follows repentance and results in obedience.
Isaiah 40:1-2

One Happy Meal will not satisfy my children for the rest for the day … we are lucky if the effect lasts until we get to the car. And so it is with peace and prosperity! My children cannot obey You once and expect the results to sustain and satisfy them forever … obedience to You is a way of life … not an occasional treat.
Isaiah 48:18

May my children submit to Christ, stop fretting about their hurts and challenges and give them to You!!! May they spend time everyday thanking You and seeking You … so that they experience peace like a mighty river rolling through their obedient lives!
Isaiah 48:18

My children already possess everything they need to accomplish what they were sent to do. I pray they open their eyes and their hearts to the will of God and learn their mission … for they are equipped with the perfect tools to arrive at their destination … not anyone else’s.
1 Peter 1:3-4

May my children show and make obvious that they are letters from Christ delivered to the world by me … not written with ink but with the Spirit of the living God … not on tablets of stone but on tablets of the human heart.
2 Corinthians 3:3

Keep my children in front of Your mirror, set their gaze on You. As they begin to see their reflection through Your eyes they will see the actions they need to take in order to come in line with who You want them to become. Remind them as often as needed to feel no shame for the distance they must travel and let them rejoice because they are lucky enough to be journeying toward You!
2 Corinthians 3:18

When my children feel the favor, benefits, and opportunities that seem too good to be true, as if the stars have lined up and everything is too perfect … I pray they give You the glory. May they walk securely in Your favor in these moments and reject any feeling of discouragement, weariness or exhaustion. As they walk in Your divine will … and push through … Your promises will see them through!
2 Corinthians 4:1

Tuesday 8/14/2018

When my children are on my last nerve and I feel overcome with irritability, selfishness, anger, or resentment for my present circumstances, may I recognize the root of the problem … which is NOT my children, but my hungry soul needing to rest in You. Just as I become a grouch when I experience physical hunger … I become even grouchier when I am experiencing spiritual hunger!
John 4:14

Monday 8/13/2018

You have assured us that if we believe in You that we will be able to do the things that You do, and that we will do even greater things because You have gone to the Father. It is with this authority that I break every hold the enemy has over my children and deliver them before the throne so that You can teach them how to unleash Your power into their lives! John 14:12

Sunday 8/12/2018

Give my children a revelation of communion. Jesus is the Bread of Life and I pray my children will KNOW this so they will never be hungry or thirsty and will continually be filled with Him so they lack nothing.
John 6:35
