Praying For Our Children…Every Day

Uncategorized

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

Develop my children’s natural abilities and place opportunities in front of them that line up with those abilities so they can discover what they love to do. Lead them in the direction of that beloved endeavor. Place other people in their paths that encourage them to stay the course. Most of all, give them the strength to pursue and develop this passion so they truly accomplish the work You have placed them here to accomplish!
2Timothy 1:6

Let my life be a reminder to my children that we must obey the commands of God revealed to us through scripture. Many things are kept secret and for those we aren’t responsible … but where scripture is clear … there are no ‘ifs’ or ‘buts’ nor exceptions.
Deuteronomy 29:29


Sunday 5/13/2018

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.
Joshua 9:14

Keep my children close; don’t let them drift away from the assurance they received when they heard the Good News. Use me to teach them. When they experience the fruits of my love for Your people, let them crave opportunities to show their love and place people in their paths to receive it.
Colossians 1:23


Thursday 5/10/2018

Thank you for purchasing my children’s freedom with the life of Your own Son. You understand our pain because You have already faced our deepest fear and greatest loss- the loss of a child. Let us run to You for comfort when we feel overburdened by our pain.
Colossians 1:14


Wednesday 5/09/2018

When my children feel trapped and alone along the path You set before them, tell them to fear not and stand firm, confident and undismayed. You promised to fight for them so they will not lose their peace as they rest in the comfort of Your embrace… like a small child in his father’s arms.
Exodus 14:13-14

Of course my children will sin, that is not the point. May they freely admit their sin so they will be forgiven and continuously cleansed from all unrighteousness.

I trust Christ to save me. Use my life to teach my children that God’s way of making us right with Himself depends on faith, not their own goodness. Let them experience the mighty power that raised Christ from the dead.

Sunday 5/06/2018

Teach my children the secret to releasing Your power through their prayer. Give them divine understanding of Your will so they may be confident You are listening whenever they ask anything in line with that will. You have taught us that when our requests line up with Your will, we can be sure You will give us what we ask for.
1John 5:14-15


Saturday 5/05/2018

Sometimes when my children are experiencing a season of loss … they forget the good stuff. Their own loss hardens them to the plight of others as well as their own blessings. Their happiness will never come from getting what they want, but only through gratitude for what they already have. Please remind them today to appreciate all that they have and focus less on what they have lost.
Ruth 1:21

David killed Goliath with a slingshot and a stone. Teach my children that they don’t need an army to defeat their giants … they just need praise. As they learn to praise You in the trenches my children will learn that You live in that kind of atmosphere and a channel is created through which You enter and go to work on their problems.
Psalms 34:1, 22:3


Tuesday 5/01/2018

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


Monday 4/30/2018

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


Sunday 4/29/2018

My children will fear no enemies, not one! They will not tremble today or be terrified because of them. You are with them crushing those enemies and saving them from the potential pain of falling into traps and a life of destruction.
Deuteronomy 20:3-4


Saturday 4/28/2018

Teach my children to pray heartfelt and continuous prayers and reveal to them the life changing power available to those who live a life pleasing to you … may the resurrected power of Christ dwell in my children so they may become a mighty force for Your kingdom leading Your sheep back home!
James 5:16-20

May the sunrise become sacred to my children as the Glory of God speaks out over all the earth. May they exalt God above the heavens as they are reminded in Technicolor to live this day for You!
Psalms 57:11


Wednesday 4/25/2016

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


Tuesday 4/24/2018

Give my children an overcoming spirit. Turn their weakness into strength so that they may develop the kind of faith that refuses to settle for anything less than God has promised.

I pray my children speak with You this morning, saying to You, “All You command us we will do, and wherever You send us we will go.”
Joshua 1:16


Sunday 4/22/2018

When my children find themselves condemning others, let that be a clue that they are not receiving forgiveness for their own sin. Guilt and condemnation tell my children that their sins are too big for God’s forgiveness. Help them adopt a humble attitude and forgive themselves the way God has.
Isaiah 43:25
