Praying For Our Children…Every Day

Uncategorized

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.
Romans 12:16, 14:3, 14:23


Friday 5/24/2019

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.
2Corinthians 10:2, Romans 14:4


Thursday 5/23/2019

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.
Psalms 15:2, John 8:32, Ephesians 4:1MAY 32

Blaze Your promises on my children’s hearts. As they see Your promises come to fruition their trust in You will become unshakable. May I stand on Your promises as I face today’s struggles and may I display the fruits of Your Spirit; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. As I do, my children will want what I have and follow me … not their peers.
Hebrews 6:12-15, Galatians 5:22-23

As a new day dawns, show my children what old ‘thing or habit’ they need to get rid of. They will not be held back by the past. They will move boldly into this day, their future … with no baggage or regret!
Isaiah 43:18


Monday 5/20/2019

Give my children a wholesome dread of displeasing You so they will be intrinsically motivated to obey Your commands. Let them experience the light free feeling that flows from doing the ‘right’ thing so that they crave more and truly begin to understand that obedience is not only the root of character but the foundation of all happiness.
Ecclesiastes 12:13


Sunday 5/19/2019

Let my children be fire lighters, inspiring those around them to dream big. Reveal to them those phrases they use that tear others down so that they will become effective in lighting the fire of passion throughout their lifetime … let it start today.

Jeremiah 20:9

My children will learn to seek Your wisdom in all situations. There are many people on this earth who are out to trick them … my children will be protected from false motives as they learn to seek You.

Thursday 5/09/2019

You know what You are doing. You have it all planned out. Plans to take care of my children, not abandon them. Plans to give them the future they hope for. When they call on You, when they come and pray to You, You will listen. When they come looking for You, You’ll find them. Yes, when they get serious about finding You and want it more than anything else, You’ll make sure they won’t be disappointed … You will turn things around for them.

Jeremiah 29:11-14


Wednesday 5/08/2019

Surround my children with people who celebrate and worship You. May they love and be kind to all people, especially those who don’t know You … keep them from adopting the ways of those who do not trust You … so they do not fall victim to the enemy.

Joshua 23:14


Tuesday 5/07/2019

Make my house strong so the enemy can’t use us to hurt each other. As I parent Your remarkable children … I will keep them from hunger, anger, loneliness, and exhaustion … that is when they become vulnerable and make bad decisions. Thank You for loving me and sharing this wisdom with me this morning.

Matthew 24:43

Luke 21:34


Sunday 5/05/2019

I pray my children know You through Jesus … for He is the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to You but through Jesus! May they humble themselves and finally accept that they can NOT earn Your love, forgiveness, devotion, or salvation!

Focus my children. Reveal to them the purpose You have placed in their hearts so they don’t waste time and energy chasing someone else’s dream.

Proverbs 4:27


Thursday 5/02/2019

Keep my children from jumping to false conclusions. When they see each other seemingly displeasing You, let them take the time to ask for each other’s explanation. Most likely, all is well, as the Israelites discovered of their brethren in the matter of the Lord’s alter near the Jordan.

Joshua 22


Wednesday 5/01/2019

Do not let my children be deceived into believing they are immune to the judgment of our Lord because they reject His authority in their hearts and minds. This world has powerful pulls of deception working to distance us from our maker … strengthen my children’s faith so they will stand firm.

Deuteronomy 29:19-20


Tuesday 4/30/2019

My children have made a difference in my life, just be being who they are. Help them make a lasting difference in the lives they touch. Develop their character … help them become the kind of people who put others first and fight for truth. Let their lives be an example for others … even after they are gone.

2Peter 1:15

My children will be more influenced by the future than the past. What they commit themselves to will determine who they are today and who they will become.

Philippians 3:13


Thursday 4/25/2019

My children will pray for those who persecute them. Give them the heart of Christ and let them react to persecution the way the soldier in the story did. When boots were thrown in his face as he knelt in prayer, he did nothing … and the next morning … the boots were polished and returned to the offender’s bunk. Give my children that kind of strength and understanding of Your Word!

Matthew 5:49
