Praying For Our Children…Every Day


Monday 7/13/2020

Give my children a tender heart … may they feel Your pain in the presence of friends who have closed their ears to Your Word and chosen not to receive or obey Your promptings. May these experiences cause them to renew their faith in Your way. And I ask You to help my children understand that You are mighty to restore Your wayward servants … that it is Your place, not theirs, to decide who stands or falls before You.
Psalm 119:136, Romans 14:4

Sunday 7/12/2020

I pray that my children leave their comfort zone today and share Your name when the time arises … they will know … let their ears be open to Your voice and their hearts be full of Your love so that Your goodness will naturally flow out of them to bless others.
Matthew 9:38

Saturday 7/11/2020

I pray my children’s lives become a conduit to bring Your love and purpose to fruition in the lives of those around them. Give me the wisdom to cleverly get Your Word into them until the day they begin to crave time alone with you … and that time will come!
Isaiah 55:10-11

Friday 7/10/2020

Give my children x-ray vision … to be able to spot the goodness in every situation. Just for today, I pray my children make a conscious effort to only see the good in every person and every moment. As their grumbles transform to laughter I pray they recognize the power of gratitude … their own attitude … and try it again tomorrow!
Hebrews 13:15

Thursday 7/09/2020

At some point we each learn (usually the hard way) that we prosper in direct correlation to the prosperity of our soul. I pray the Holy Spirit becomes so strong in my children and they hear His voice so clearly that their soul becomes strong and Christ like … for when it does, the gates of heaven will open and pour divine health, divine love, divine forgiveness, divine wealth and all forms of earthly prosperity into the lives of my children.
1John 3, Romans 5:5, Tit 3:6, Matthew 3:10

Tuesday 7/08/2020

I pray my children NEVER ignore the poor … for he who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor will also cry himself and not be answered.
Proverbs 21:13

Monday 7/06/2020

May my children choose to love You. Talk is cheap … their actions prove to You who they serve! You have given each of them the gift of Your voice, the constant presence of Knowledge available to them. I pray with all my heart they learn to LISTEN to You (that still, small voice in their minds!) I pray Your presence outgrows the overpowering ‘promptings’ of the enemy that come in the form of peer pressure, media, celebrity, and physical desire to make my children believe satisfying the craving’s of their flesh in ways that dishonor God is perfectly acceptable because “everyone is doing it … their parents don’t care!”
Romans 8:29-30

Sunday 7/05/2020

Give my children the wisdom necessary to understand the magnitude of Christ’s sacrifice. You teach us that sin has earthly consequences and You also teach us how to avoid the eternal consequences of our sin. Open my children’s hearts and make them tender … may they feel the pain of their own sin so that they accept the full measure of Your forgiveness. May they turn from their sin and live only for You.
2Samuel 12:9-14

Saturday 7/04/2020

Don’t let my children conform to this world but let them be transformed by the renewal of their mind. Give me a heart to be their spiritual blacksmith so that I may use my time with them wisely … molding them to follow You.
1Samuel 13:19

Friday 7/04/2020

Do not let my children develop an attitude of superiority. You created them to carry the burdens of others … and their load will require assistance, too. Let them receive the understanding and concept of teamwork and allow themselves to need help. The people You then place alongside them will take their breath away!
1Kings 10:20

Thursday 7/02/2020

May those who care for my children find rest. Your Word teaches us that the natural path away from depression, lack of perspective, and a sense of hopelessness is to rest our bodies, receive the love being poured out to us by friends, and banish the whispers of fear by replacing them with Your voice and the promises found in Your Word. Give my children adults who live by these principles, especially in their darkest moments. Life goes on … may we all live to our potential EVERYDAY regardless of our circumstance … the next generation is watching!
1Kings 19

Wednesday 7/01/2020

Show my children the steps they need to take to express their love to others … love is an action word. Let them begin to spend more time focusing on building relationships than building their toy box. This wisdom will naturally come to them as they are faced with their own mortality … they won’t long for their accumulated possessions as they prepare to exit this world … they will long for people. Give my children a vision of this now … and revolutionize their priorities!
1 John 3:8, Psalms 2:8

Tuesday 6/30/2020

May my children have good success in all of their endeavors, producing the desired results … and maintaining a heart filled with joy regardless of circumstance. For a life lived well is a great testament to the promises of Your Love. Teach my children to verbally give all credit to You alone … for when they do, Your blessings come upon them and satisfy the longings of their souls.
Psalms 107

Monday 6/29/2020

Keep my children from believing the lie that the thing they desire most will bring them the happiness they so desperately crave (be it a relationship, their health, a certain possession, financial security, etc …). Teach my children that true happiness comes when they trust You for what they need, knowing if it’s right You’ll provide it, and if not, You’ll give them something better!
Mark 4:19

Saturday 6/27/2020

Matthew 12:29
Miracles are just waiting to be unleashed in the lives of my children. Give them the confidence to believe that if they will repent of their sin and fix their eyes on Jesus … they too will weather their storms and arrive victorious. Give them a vision of Christ standing before them with all of their problems under His feet … and let them know … because of their faith … their problems are under their feet, too!
Matthew 14:28

Friday 6/26/2020

Don’t let my children wait for the perfect conditions to occur before they take steps to reach the visions you have placed in them. May the power of Your Word through their faith in Jesus Christ propel them to take action to begin each new journey … and most importantly, when they are experiencing storms … they will walk towards You.
Matthew 12:29

Thursday 6/25/2020

Help my children understand that feeling overwhelmed and alone is not a sign they are walking OUT of Your will. Even Jesus felt this kind of pain as he hung from the cross under the weight of our sins. My children are strong and able warriors. They will stay at their posts and not give into temptations from the enemy to walk away from their dreams and attain the visions You have placed in them!
Matthew 27:46, Luke 23:46

Wednesday 6/24/2020

Everyone has problems. Help my children see theirs differently and know that a problem is a sign they have a promise! As they suffer temporary situations or the actions of others they will learn to trust that You are steadfast and Your plan is to bless them … that as they suffer trials … if they persevere … not only will their character grow but so will their level of blessing!
1Corinthians 10:13, Genesis 50:20

Tuesday 6/23/2020

Give my children perspective, not letting them become too attached to this world. Forget Disneyland and European vacations … give them visions of Heaven and the perfection that abounds there … for we are each on earth for only a while but those who repent and turn to God through Jesus Christ will spend eternity in a place they can only imagine in their dreams!
John 14:1-3, Revelation 21:2

Monday 6/22/2020

Transform my children by renewing their minds. Please find a way to bring the Word into their lives today, giving them a desire to know how You want them to live. Obedience to Your Word is the best way for all of us to find what we are looking for … but the enemy is working overtime to keep us from learning how to live!
Romans 12:2

Sunday 6/21/2020

Place a burning desire in my children’s hearts to read Your Word … for every answer to every problem they are facing today can be found in their Bible. The printed words are like pipes, transporting life giving water into their souls … but they must learn to connect themselves to the source of Your joy, comfort, peace, and prosperity by actually reading the Word!
Malachi 15:6, John 1:14, John 7:37-38

Saturday 6/20/2020

Let each of my children be an instrument of peace … taking risks to be the voice of reason in a fallen world. We all need to reach out to our world to prevent others from choosing sin, to offer alternatives and God’s wisdom … please give my children the strength and most importantly a humble spirit to help others in this way.
1Samuel 25:32

Thursday 6/18/2020

Thank You for allowing winds to come against my children. For it is in weathering their storms that they develop the strength and character necessary to succeed throughout their lives.
James 1:2-4

Wednesday 6/17/2020

Endurance simply means outlasting the problem. Help my children endure the hardship they are facing today. Place warriors alongside them that don’t quit so my children will know the hope and joy endurance brings.
Hebrews 10:36
