Praying For Our Children…Every Day

May my children find the blessings in their trials. Often times it takes the presence of a storm to find peace … as they pass through the storm and walk into the eye they find Jesus. I pray my children find Him without the need of a storm … but if that is not the case, keep them safe and keep them moving until they find You!

Faith enables my children to receive what God has already done. He has already made my children healthy, wealthy and wise … but they must believe it to receive it. May my children remain patience and steadfast in their faith as they mature in Christ and transform their lives and their destiny through obedience to Your Word.
Mark 11:22-23, 3 John 1:2, Hebrews 11:1

Give my children tunnel vision … help them see what You see. A lost friend doesn’t result in a life of loneliness; a bad grade doesn’t result in a life of poverty, and a pimple doesn’t mark them for a life of failure. May they walk by faith and not by sight, trusting You to “have their back” as they face another day.
Hebrews 10:38

As my children mature, give them the right amount of Your wisdom at just the right time. May they steadily grow in Your Word so they don’t become overwhelmed and stumble. Your promises are great … but we must each learn the doors we must walk through in order to receive them.
Psalms 112:1

Show my children that keeping score is a sign of immaturity. Show them that forgiveness is defined by their actions … and that if they truly forgive someone who offended or hurt them, their actions towards that person will communicate that fact. Rather than withdraw their spirit and retreat into a protective shell around those who have brought pain to their lives or rather than boil over with anger in their presence … my children will have the courage to ACT in love towards them … offering patience and acts of kindness. They don’t have to stay in relationship, that requires earned trust, but they must be able to smile and have a genuine heart of forgiveness towards the offenders.
Matthew 17, 1Corinthians 13:4

Thank You Father for breaking the hold sin had over my children. May they receive this incredible gift by faith, believing that through Christ, they have the power to resist sin. I am so grateful that You have made a way for us to travel from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God … may my children see me making the journey … and follow!
Colossians 1:13-14

The next time my children are offered an invitation to a pity party, their own or to that of a friend, I pray they turn it down. Let them become so filled with gratitude for all the good in their lives and may their eyesight become so sharp that they are able to point out all the good to others whose sight has grown dim. When they are tempted to focus on the negative, may they remember Christ’s sacrifice and see that the power of the negative forces in their lives can only function if they allow it to … that all sin (this includes sickness, disease, poverty and lack) was nailed to the cross and is powerless … if only they call on You to rescue them!
1Thessalonians 5:16-18, Romans 10:13

Let the spirit of Christ grow strong in my children, for that is the assurance that they will share in His glory. May Christ’s mighty power mature in them so they can share His glory with others.
Colossians 1:27

Dear Lord, I know that you have the power to do anything I ask … and when I don’t please let me acknowledge my lack of faith so You can give me that, too! Today, my children will speak promise and success over their situation (and they always have SOME situation!) They will not rehearse the curse of negativity with ‘whoa is me’ and ‘what am I going to do now’!
Mark 11:12

Do not allow my children to fret about the unsaved. It is not their job nor do they have the power to save others. Let them live a joyful life knowing You have their back here on earth and that they will spend eternity with You. Their job is to plant the seed then remain humble and trust You enough to do the rest.
John 12:32
