Praying For Our Children…Every Day

Uncategorized

Sunday 10/21/2018

I pray my children stand firm and NEVER give in to a coldness of heart. May they never allow the enemy to talk them into protecting themselves relationally by shutting their hearts up in a steel box.
Matthew 24:12


Saturday 10/20/2018

I pray my children receive the steady supply of the Word they get each week by APPLYING it to their daily lives … not just to their lives but through their lives by allowing the Word to transform the way they think then ultimately behave!
2Corinthians 3:18, 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24


Friday 10/19/2018

Stop my children from praying for show! Don’t let them become like the hypocrites who love to stand and pray in the churches and street corners so they can be seen by men … for if they do their reward will come from men and not from You.
Matthew 6:5


Thursday 10/18/2018

Praying repetitive empty words blocks my children’s prayers from reaching You. May they talk to You from their hearts!
Matthew 6:7-8


Wednesday 10/17/2018

Nothing blocks promise like prayers NOT prayed. In order to receive Your blessings my children must humble themselves and ask!
James 4:2


Tuesday 10/16/2018

Today, each of my children will encounter at least one person who is hurting … whether they recognize the pain or not. May my children be the encouragers of this world bringing hope and joy to everyone they meet. When my children are hurting, I pray they realize You haven’t turned your back on them … for it is in knowing Your true love that enables them to comfort others.
2 Corinthians 1:4


Monday 10/15/2018

My children will not receive the fruit of Your promise if they ask with wrong motives. I wouldn’t give a beggar provisions to buy beer and neither will God bless my children if they are solely motivated by their own selfish pleasures.
James 4:3


Sunday 10/14/2018

I Pray my married children never mistreat their spouse … not only will they hurt the one they love … they will block the blessings from the ONE who loves them!
1 Peter 3:7


Saturday 10/13/2018

May my children pray from a repentant heart. If they cherish sin in their hearts, the Lord will not listen, but when my children repent God listens and hears their voice in prayer.
Psalms 66:18-19


Friday 10/12/2018

May my children be anchored in Your ways so they don’t drift away when circumstances begin to change. Yes, problems will come but give them the wisdom to only glance their way rather than obsessing over them!
James 1:6-8


Thursday 10/11/2018

We are created to believe the best in every person. My children do, but they forget the most important part … ALL the time! Especially when someone is annoying them, may my children STOP and focus on the positive attributes … I am not that bad!!!
1 Cor 13:7


Wednesday 10/08/2018

Show my children specific areas of their lives where they are displeasing You. May they repent, receive forgiveness and then work to remove those behaviors from their lives. In doing so, they will be free to live a life that is full of joy, peace, and much love!
2Timothy 3:15-17


Monday 10/08/2018

Faith is a force that can change things in my children’s lives. I pray that their dreams and plans are in line with Your will. I pray that my children BELIEVE that what they ask WILL take place … and most of all I pray their faith grows so that You become the most powerful force in their lives!
Mark 11:23-24


Sunday 10/07/2018

I want to be a good example for my children. Help me understand that true joy and peace are directly tied to my faith. If I want more joy, or more peace … I must simply ask You for more faith. Just as eating pie brings a smile to my face, asking for more faith brings a smile to my soul. Eating pie last week didn’t do anything for me today … and neither will my prayers from last week sustain me through today!
Philippians 4:6-7


Saturday 10/06/2018

I pray my children yearn for Your presence, for when they do … it is a clear picture of a satisfied life. Just as those who drink water crave water to satisfy their thirst … those who experience the presence of God crave Him to satisfy their souls.
Isaiah 55:1-2


Friday 10/05/2018

May my children find favor with the multitude of their brethren by seeking the welfare of others and speaking peace to all they encounter.
Esther 10:3


Thursday 10/04/2018

May my children walk in all that You hold for them. May their lives transform to be a place of refuge and protection from a broken world. The world is broken but my children are NOT because they are the redeemed of the Lord … saved by the one and only source of salvation … Jesus Christ!
Isaiah 61:1-4


Wednesday 10/03/2018

I pray my children hear You when You speak to them … through pastors, their Bibles, nature, songs, whispers, and sometimes my voice. You speak to them throughout the day gently nudging them in the direction of Your will … may they seek You and be aware of Your constant presence.
Revelation 2:29


Tuesday 10/02/2018

Take whatever faith my children possess and work with it! Your Word is filled with thousands of promises. May my children use the index at the end of their bibles, find the promises they need to carry them through their current trial … and then believe You that You are able and willing to deliver! May they see me carrying around scriptures tucked in my pockets, enjoy the warmth of my peace and joy … to want what I have and get it for themselves!
Romans 4:17-21, Hebrews 11:1


Monday 10/01/2018

Making God the ultimate authority in every decision my children make is the key to unlocking the door that releases peace into their lives. As Christians, the peace is always available to them (as is the love, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, & self-control) but they MUST choose Your will (they know the sound of Your voice they just sometimes ignore it!) and submit to You through obedience.
Galatians 5:22-25


Sunday 9/30/2018

I pray my children recognize that their resources are all from You. May they seek Your will and then believe You. I’m quite sure You are asking them to do far more than they believe they are capable of achieving … and I am even more certain the resources You have given them are far greater than they can even imagine!
Nehemiah 9:15-17


Saturday 9/29/2018

May my children dwell in love, live it and walk it out, and not just love for You but love in action for those around them. For in doing so they place themselves in Your shelter and can weather any storm.
Psalms 91:1


Friday 9/28/2018

Let my children see that FEAR is a tool of the enemy! May they make a conscious effort to eliminate ungodly fear from their lives. The natural outcome of fear is a propensity to sin … and when that happens … the enemy gets another point!
Nehemiah 6:13


Thursday 9/27/2018

Give my children a heart and mind to work for Your purposes. Show them the plots of the enemy meant to frustrate and halt their progress so they may call on You. May they stand firm in accomplishing all that You have called them to do, even if that means working with one hand and holding a weapon against the enemy in the other.
Nehemiah 4:6, 15, 17
