Praying For Our Children…Every Day

Uncategorized

Wednesday 1/23/2019

Keep my children from busying themselves with other people’s affairs rather than doing their own work. I will correct them as needed without becoming weary or losing heart in doing right. I will be consistent.

1Thessalonians 3:11-13


Tuesday 1/22/2019

Give my children the wisdom of Joseph to know that God is in control of our lives at all times, even in long times of trouble. May they grow in this time so they will be prepared to accomplish God’s will when the pieces fall into place. And they will!

Genesis 45:8


Monday 1/21/2018

You promise to make my home joyful and favored if I am just and consistently righteous. Make me grateful for that promise so that I take it. In doing so my children will taste the blessing and someday place their home on the same foundation as mine.

Proverbs 3:33


Sunday 1/20/2019

My children will follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit within them and stay away from sin. The act is arbitrary. That is why God says that breaking one law or commandment is as detrimental as breaking them all! The fact that we reject His authority is all that matters, on a large or small scale.

Genesis 4:3-4


Saturday 1/20/2018

Your word teaches us that if anyone will not work, neither let them eat. As my children mature, help me identify appropriate ways to hold them accountable for idleness and not taking care of their business!

1Thessalonians 3:11-12

Prepare my children to grasp the glorious future You have laid before them. Make their dreams strong and clear so they will have the vision to endure the trials and obstacles that will stand in their way.

Psalms 105:19


Thursday 1/17/2019

Let Your Holy Spirit lead the lives of my children. As they learn to yield to Your spirit, strengthen them to be a bearer of Your love to a broken world. May Your Holy Spirit give them great love for others.

Colossians 1:8


Wednesday 1/16/2018

Let my children organize their time and follow through with their plans. In doing so, they won’t be consumed by the busyness of life and the frantic “catch-up” which steals their peace. They will then experience a multitude of quiet moments throughout their day. These still quiet moments are the gateway to Your presence and the pathway to Holy Ground.

Exodus 3:2-5


Tuesday 1/15/2019

Prayer is more than a string of words or a list of requests; it is the act of intimacy with God. Coming into intimacy with You is the principal purpose of prayer. Let my children experience Your amazing presence through their prayers so they will know the power of keeping those lines of communication open. They will learn that leaning on You at work, play, or rest is worship … and they will feel blessed.

Revelation 8:3-4


Monday 1/14/2019

Build strong character in my children by teaching them the importance of self discipline. Their greatest victories will be their internal ones. They will set their standards high by following the example of the spiritual strength and character needed to accomplish great things for You.

Proverbs 16:32, Matthew 16:24


Sunday 1/13/2019

My children will not have the kind of faith that allows them to be lazy or apathetic while waiting on the Lord. They will use all that has been given to them to do all that they can … then trust God to do the rest.

Proverbs 16:9


Saturday 1/12/2019

Teach my children to live in Your will by giving them the resources they need minute by minute as they plunge into their unique adventures with You. The right provision at just the right moment will encourage them to stay on this awesome ride with You- fulfilling their purpose in the body of Christ!

Matthew 6:33


Friday 1/11/2019

Impress upon my children the urgency and importance of today. Rather than put off their obligations or delay their dreams, they will begin today, and in doing so release Your power over their lives. They will live by faith and not the illusion of their own power.

Galatians 6:4


Thursday 1/10/2019

Bless my children with the kind of faith that empowers them to receive what they ask for in prayer. Prompt them to forgive all grudges they are holding against others. In doing so, they are equipped to embrace Your promise that whatever they ask for in prayer, if they believe that they have received it, it will be theirs. Please give them the patience and hope to enjoy every day while waiting on that delivered promise.

Mark 11:23-26; 1Corinthians 12:9


Wednesday 1/09/2019

Make my children confident and courageous. Take their hand and lead them to start something today that they have been putting off rather than waiting for perfect conditions to begin. Take my hand, too!

Ecclesiastes 11:4; Deuteronomy 1:29-30


Tuesday 1/08/2019

Give my children the best view of reality so they may have the clearest priorities. They will understand You are worthy and order their existence around You. Teach me to do the same!

Revelation 8:6-11,19


Monday 1/07/2019

My children will learn to be courageous much like they learned to walk. They will see Your outstretched arms and hear Your loving voice saying, “Come, you can do it!” Make them understand that the assurance of Your voice, Your presence is all they need to tread safely into the unknown.

Deuteronomy 31:6


Sunday 1/06/2019

Build strong character in my children by giving them a clear sense of purpose. As they mature in character they will crave Your word, then all will be revealed; why we are alive, how life works, what to avoid, and what to expect in the future. My children will build their lives on eternal truths, not pop psychology, success, motivation or inspirational stories.

1Corinthians 2:7, 1Timothy 1:12


Saturday 1/05/2019

Help me take my tired hands and stand firm on my shaky legs. Give me wisdom to mark out a straight path for my feet. Then my children who are following me will not stumble and fall but will become strong.

Hebrews 12:12-13


Friday 1/04/2019

Teach my children the power of Selah (pause and reflect). Don’t allow them to race through life without capturing the meaning. When they experience those ‘ah ha’ moments, they will pause, give thanks for Your constant companionship in their lives, and then strive to comprehend that You were there all along.

Psalms 3:1-8


Tuesday 1/01/2019

Go with my children into the New Year so they will live and not hide. Give them the catalyst to activate their faith … courage. Show them how to tremble their way to confidence, that courage isn’t the absence of fear, but the conquest of it.

Deuteronomy 31:6


Wednesday 01/02/2019

Reveal to my children that letting their minds become seduced from wholehearted, sincere, and pure devotion to Christ is no different from Eve taking that apple. Both hinge on the test of obedience. Eve wasn’t ejected from the garden simply because she ate the fruit but because she disobeyed God by rejecting His authority. We won’t be rejected from the Kingdom for any of our acts, but because we disobey God by rejecting the authority of His Son.

2Corinthians 11:3, Genesis 3:6


Monday 12/31/2018

Give my children the wisdom to see that Your command to love God above all others is about actions. Love is a verb … They must seek Your presence and Your wisdom through bible study, prayer, and good teachers of Your Word (make me one of those!) so they will be led by the Holy Spirit to fulfill Your purposes for their lives. Loving You above all others means obeying You and turning away from the obligations to please others (and themselves) when their expectations are NOT in line with Your will.

Luke 10:27, Matthew 10:37


Sunday 12/30/2018

God speaks to us through the magic of music. Hearing a new song sometimes puts a bounce in our step or a smile on our face that lasts all day, or an instrumental arrangement that for some inexplicable reason fills our eyes with tears … thank You for these little previews of heaven while on this earth. Let my children pay the closest attention to these moments, for You are whispering secrets of where they have come from and unveiling the mystery of where they should go next.

Revelation 14:3
