Praying For Our Children…Every Day

Prayers for the week

I’m camping out in West Texas with no cell or wifi service so posting the prayers for the following week! God bless you all richly! 🙂

 

8-01-08 Oftentimes my children forget that God’s children aren’t just the people that seem nice or other Christians or the people that seem safe…  but ALL the precious people God created. Let my children find ways to express Your love to the world around them… for You reside in every person walking the planet (whether they know it or not!) Mt 25:40

 

7-31-08 My children cannot throw out parts of the Bible they don’t agree with… they know this! Let them confess that Your works are marvelous, which includes their own bodies, inside and out! Let them learn that by confessing that they are wonderful is an act of praise to You. Putting themselves down is a direct insult to Your mighty masterpiece… Your children! And please remind them that You made everyone else too, that we are each remarkable creations making our way back to you, help them look past imperfections and cruel results of sin to see the original beauty You placed in each of us! Ps 139:14

 

7-30-08 When Jesus died he did not leave my children an inheritance of junk, he left them His most prized possession… His peace. I pray my children learn the combination to the safe (submission to the Holy Spirit) and choose to withdraw peace from their ‘trust account’ daily. I say choose because it is up to them… I pray their vision increases through faith so they may ‘see’ and embrace all that Christ has accomplished and bequeathed to them! Col 3:15, Jn 14:27, Gal 5:22, Jn 14:1

 

7-29-08 Teach my children that earthly prosperity is NOT the goal but the result! Help them understand that seeking Your will then following it is the goal… for they will become so filled with joy, peace, and love that prosperity will simply become a fringe benefit… the frosting on the cake… and every parent knows that frosting makes you sick if that is all you get! 2Co 8:9, 3 Jn 1:2, Jn 15:4, 11

 

7-28-08 In the midst of my children’s pain, let them find someone who is hurting and offer them help and hope. In doing so they will please God and possibly save a life! Lk 23:39-43, Ac 7:59-60

 

7-27-08 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! Php 4:7

 

7-26-08 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. Mk 11:22-23, 3 Jn 1:2, Heb 11:1

 

7-25-08 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. Heb 10:38
