Thursday 2/20/2020

I pray that You strengthen my children with Your glorious power so that they will have all the patience and endurance they need.
Colossians 1:11

When my children throw a pity-party for themselves, help them stop! Open their eyes to the immediate needs of others around them and let them find ways to help, prayers to pray and, above all … offer unconditional love.
Psalms 25:16

Tuesday 2/18/2020

My children will be the salt of this earth, daily preserving the attributes of Christ within them so they may bring forth Your love to a hurting world.
Leviticus 2:13, Mark 9:50

Help my children understand what it means to honor one another above themselves. Let them experience the unexpected joy of helping others and the unbelievable peace that comes when they stop believing that their way is the only way.
Romans 12:10

Sunday 2/16/2020

Thank You for giving my children tender hearts. Yes, they feel pain as their hearts break for what breaks Yours, and they feel the piercing arrows of Your correction. May they never harden so that this divine connection of the heart they share with You remains strong. Their faith is defined as they learn to walk with You … when they get busy going about life … it is these tugs on their hearts that remind them they are living for You.
Joel 2:12-14, Ezekiel 36:26

Saturday 2/15/2020

Lord, please reveal to my children the areas of their lives that displease You. Give them a wholesome dread of displeasing You so they will choose obedience. In doing so, they will release the power of Your blessings over their lives.
Psalms 25:11-14

Friday 2/14/2020

Use me to fill up anything that may still be missing in my children’s faith. Make their love grow and overflow for each other and to everyone else so that Christ will make their hearts strong, blameless, and holy when they stand before You on judgment day.
Thessalonians 3:12-13

Thursday 2/13/2020

Our world offers powerful substitutes for needs that only God can meet. Show my children that it is their union with Christ that makes them complete. He is the only answer.
Colossians 2:8-10

Wednesday 2/12/2020

Don’t let my children close their eyes to Your goodness because of any hurt they are nursing. Help them hold on to what is good and keep them away from every kind of evil.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-22

Tuesday 2/11/2020

Show my children that it is the condition of their heart revealed to You through their acts of obedience that define their worship as true or simply formalistic. Let them draw from the story of Cain and Abel the difference between a heart that seeks to please God and one that just jumps through the hoops.
Genesis 4:3-5

Monday 2/10/2020

My children have talent and God requires them to use it. They will not spend precious time strengthening the talents they want rather than the ones they already have.
1 Corinthians 12:11

Sunday 2/09/2020

Join my children to Christ’s body by his strong sinews so they are nourished and strengthened by You. Show them that the only way to receive Your strength and blessing on earth is to bind their lives to Jesus Christ. Show them that sin weakens the connection and saps their strength.
Colossians 2:19

Saturday 2/08/2020

Give my children a hunger for Your word. Place them under the care of teachers and spiritual leaders who are strong Christians so they may further grow in truth. Expose false teachers sent by the enemy to shift their focus and energy to unworthy things. Keep them on guard so they don’t find themselves valuing that which is not God.
2 John 1:7-11

Friday 2/07/2020

We offer You our hearts, dedicated and fully immersed in a lifestyle of continual worship. Let my children release their gifts, talents, and abilities to You so they may hear what kind of sacrifice You want from them. With a pure heart they will serve You first so the purpose of their lives will be fulfilled.
Genesis 4:3-5

Thursday 2/06/2020

Lord, let me hear the sweet comfort of Your voice. Those moments when my mind becomes sharp, clear, focused and completely consumed by my connection to You. My children will benefit as I carry them along my path, teaching them to walk with You also, and then rejoicing as they recognize Your voice and follow You.
1Samuel 3:9, Proverbs 22:6, Deuteronomy 11:19, Deuteronomy 4:9

Wednesday 2/05/2020

Help my children see the truth, that under God’s protection and Christ’s blood, they do not have to live under guilt or condemnation. In fact, if they do, they are essentially calling God a liar … for all the sins they will commit while on earth have already been forgiven … from the womb to the tomb!
Colossians 2:13-14, 1 Peter 3:18, 1 Peter 2:24

Tuesday 2/04/2020

Take my children’s hand so they will feel the warmth of Yours. They will not seek pleasure from worldly desires that lead to destruction but rather seek experiences that draw them closer to You. They will give and receive only love.
Deuteronomy 31:8

Monday 2/03/2020

My children will consider the ways of the ant and be wise. The ant does not wait for someone to tell them how to survive, they just do it. Give my children the determination to accomplish the ingrained mission programmed into their very being … and the will to keep working daily toward that goal!
Proverbs 6:6-8

Sunday 2/02/2020

Don’t let any unwholesome talk come out of my mouth, but only what is helpful for building others up. My children will know my criticism is for their benefit and not feel the sting but only the comfort of my hand leading them in the way of God.
Ephesians 4:29

Saturday 2/01/2020

Make Your way level and straight before my children. They are young and need Your guidance. Send me out before them as a mighty worker removing stones and breaking down obstructions with every prayer I utter and every act of obedience and service to You.
Psalms 5:7-8

Friday 1/31/2029

Let my children experience the exquisite peace and contentment that You have given to me. Then they will crave more and seek opportunities for righteous living … for Your confidential communion and secret counsel are only with those who are upright and in right standing with You.
Proverbs 3:32

Thursday 2/30/2020

Let my children recognize that the little rainbows in their lives (the small needs met at just the right time) are the signs that You care for them. I will watch for these moments in their lives also and together will worship You in gratitude and love.
Genesis 9:13-15

Wednesday 2/29/2020

My children will be patient and kind. They will not be irritable, rude, selfish, easily angered and will keep no record of when they have been wronged. Let me be a living example of your definition of love so they will grow in knowledge and wisdom and reveal this kind of love to future generations.
1Corinthians 13:4-5

Tuesday 2/28/2020

Fill my children with joy by revealing their shortcomings. Do not let them erect defenses against their own inadequacies and try to hide their faults from themselves and others. Let them embrace justified criticism for what it is … encouragement toward spiritual growth.
Proverbs 15:5
