When my children experience the majesty and beauty of the natural world, may they remember Christ and know that He is the restorer of their souls… that He is altogether lovely… and their friend!

Give my children a humble spirit that they may come before You and ask You to help their weakness of faith… so that You can begin transforming their heart and teaching them that all things are possible to those that believe.
Mk 9:23-24

Let my children be grateful. Teach them the ‘reinforcement principle’… they get more of what they acknowledge… so that they begin to routinely thank the ones they love for even the smallest favor. They already practice common courtesy when they are in public, thanking coaches, the lunch lady, the checkout clerks… let them bring that gratitude home!
Ro 13:7

For their own good, I pray my children make up their minds to walk with You and follow Your plan!

I pray my children humble themselves and begin to understand their relationship with You. We are Your tools and You are the master craftsman. You give us talents and the will to develop them… You open doors and bring provision… we MUST give all glory to You… or we will fall.
Isa 9:12-18


Wednesday 6/09/2021

Lord, I pray my children put all doubts aside regarding the state of their salvation. They have asked You to be their Lord and Savior through the sacrifice of Christ Jesus… and their hearts are being transformed as they work to remove sin from their lives (however slowly… teenagers!) Once the doubt is gone, they will truly be free to live wholly for you…and become the effective people You made them to be while on this planet.
Heb 5:12-14, Ac 10:43


Tuesday 6/08/2021

I pray my children put all anxiety to rest and learn to pray with grateful hearts making their requests known to You… for You promise Your peace in the hearts and minds of those who begin to trust and rely on Christ Jesus!
Php 4:6-7


Monday 6/07/2021

May my children remain practical and stand firm against the enemy using the tools they have worked with all of their lives. Just as You prepared David to battle Goliath with a slingshot and a stone, thank You for preparing my children to face their giants according to their experiences and skill set.
Sa 17:39


Sunday 6/06/2021

Do not let my children become discouraged by their past mistakes. It’s over! Your word says that you heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds. Open my children’s hearts so your Spirit may pour into them and get to work.
Ps 147:3


Saturday 6/05/2021

We are commanded by Jesus Christ not to worry. Most of the trouble my children fear will never happen… worry is simply Satan’s tool to steal their day… and eventually their life!
Mt 6:25


Thursday 7/03/2021

May my children look to God alone for direction and not become dependent on the world to define who they will become.
1Sa 8:19-20


Wednesday 6/02/2021

As my children live in obedience, they will receive the blessings God prepares for them in a timely manner… it is when they stray from their intended path that delays most likely occur!
1Sa 9


Tuesday 6/01/2021

Give my children a heart of wisdom. Help them understand the importance of developing their gifts and using their passions to make the world a better place… give them the insight to put it all together and accept beyond doubt that they are here to introduce You to others… not save others… that is Your job… their job is to make sure the world knows about Your love… simply by just being their true selves.
Ro 12:12, Pr 11:30&19:21, IJn 5:10, ITh 1:8, Mk 15:15, Ps 67:2, Eph 5:15


Monday 5/31/2021

Reveal Your magnificence to my children… use the mountains, the testing of someone like Nick Vujicic (worth googling), or the wonder of the tiny snowflake… just help my children view themselves in relation to You so they may remain humble… for only the humble will be lifted up and their lives made significant!
Jas 4:10, 14


Sunday 5/30/2021

I pray my children love those around them and remain faithful to others You place in their lives. When they do, my children’s lives will not only be filled with earthly blessings but more importantly have access to Your place of Shelter… and remind them that love is ‘doing’ not just ‘feeling’! Show them opportunities to love others today through acts of kindness…. then give them to courage and selflessness to follow through.
Ru 3:12


Saturday 5/29/2021

Help my children see that becoming a person of discipline has nothing to do with talent or conditions… it is about choice! As they work to reach the goals they have made for themselves, give them the spirit of practice… keep that fire of desire burning in them and the discipline needed to accomplish what they set out to achieve. They are young, but their dreams are strong. If my children learn that they have what it takes to accomplish the goals of their youth… I can’t help but grin as I imagine the impact they will have on this planet throughout their lives!
1Ti 4:15


Friday 5/28/2021

Dear Lord, in the face of my children’s most grievous trouble, remind them to bend down and pray, that nothing is too hard for You. Your word tells my children that You will bend down and listen to them… but first they must submit to Your authority and have faith that You do indeed have the power to fulfill Your promises!
Ps 116:1-6


Thursday 5/27/2021

Let my children savor the fruits of their own industry. Give them a spirit of independence so they taste the exquisite reward of freedom… then let them readily share the overflowing abundance of their hearts and their treasure… for when they truly love others my children will begin to see God’s hand working in this world.
Zec 3:10, Mt 5:8


Wednesday 5/26/2021

God gives different missions to different people, and equips each person to accomplish their purpose. Don’t let my children get bogged down with hang ups about other people’s gifts. Help them see that it is not only a waste of time, but questions Your authority and capability. I pray my children do what they were made to do, let others be free to do what they were sent to do, and rejoice in everyone’s differences! Let my children celebrate each other’s gifts and know that it is all for the Glory of God… not theirs!
Gal 2:7-8


Tuesday 5/25/2021

As my children mature allow me to give them the dignity of making more and more of their own mistakes and then letting them learn from those experiences. They belong to You not me… keep me from hindering You from working in their lives by over parenting.
Ro 12:16, 14:3, 14:23


Monday 5/24/2021

Secure my children’s values so they stand firm when tempted. May they know who they are. Then release them from the urge to compare themselves to others, especially those that are not pleasing You. Give them the grace to free others from conforming to their standards and the security to believe that judgment is Your job… not theirs.
2Co 10:2, Ro 14:4


Sunday 5/23/2021

Teach my children to speak their truth… to know who they are, why they are here… and have the courage to live accordingly. God, You gave each of my children a plan and a purpose and through Jesus Christ they will discover their own personal truth… and when they do and choose to live accordingly, they will be free.
Ps 15:2, Jn 8:32, Eph 4:15-32
