Praying For Our Children…Every Day

Uncategorized

When Jesus died he did not leave my children an inheritance of junk, he left them His most prized possession… His peace. I pray my children learn the combination to the safe (submission to the Holy Spirit) and choose to withdraw peace from their ‘trust account’ daily. I say choose because it is up to them… I pray their vision increases through faith so they may ‘see’ and embrace all that Christ has accomplished and bequeathed to them!
Col 3:15, Jn 14:27, Gal 5:22, Jn 14:1

Teach my children that earthly prosperity is NOT the goal but the result! Help them understand that seeking Your will then following it is the goal… for they will become so filled with joy, peace, and love that prosperity will simply become a fringe benefit… the frosting on the cake… and every parent knows that frosting makes you sick if that is all you get!
2Co 8:9, 3 Jn 1:2, Jn 15:4, 11

In the midst of my children’s pain, let them find someone who is hurting and offer them help and hope. In doing so they will please God and possibly save a life!
Lk 23:39-43, Ac 7:59-60


Tuesday 7/27/2021

May my children find the blessings in their trials. Often times it takes the presence of a storm to find peace… as they pass through the storm and walk into the eye they find Jesus. I pray my children find Him without the need of a storm… but if that is not the case, keep them safe and keep them moving until they find You!
Php 4:7

Faith enables my children to receive what God has already done. He has already made my children healthy, wealthy and wise… but they must believe it to receive it. May my children remain patience and steadfast in their faith as they mature in Christ and transform their lives and their destiny through obedience to Your Word.
Mk 11:22-23, 3 Jn 1:2, Heb 11:1


Sunday 7/25/2021

Give my children tunnel vision… help them see what You see. A lost friend doesn’t result in a life of loneliness; a bad grade doesn’t result in a life of poverty, and a pimple doesn’t mark them for a life of failure. May they walk by faith and not by sight, trusting You to “have their back” as they face another day.
Heb 10:38


Saturday 7/24/2021

As my children mature, give them the right amount of Your wisdom at just the right time. May they steadily grow in Your Word so they don’t become overwhelmed and stumble. Your promises are great… but we must each learn the doors we must walk through in order to receive them.
Ps 112:1


Friday 7/23/2021

Make my children strong… may they NEVER opt for the easy way out and detach from people. Christ gave his life for people… and we were left here on this earth for the purpose of connecting!
Mt 24:12, Jn 17:18


Thursday 7/22/2021

Show my children that keeping score is a sign of immaturity. Show them that forgiveness is defined by their actions… and that if they truly forgive someone who offended or hurt them, their actions towards that person will communicate that fact. Rather than withdraw their spirit and retreat into a protective shell around those who have brought pain to their lives or rather than boil over with anger in their presence… my children will have the courage to ACT in love towards them… offering patience and acts of kindness. They don’t have to stay in relationship, that requires earned trust, but they must be able to smile and have a genuine heart of forgiveness towards the offenders.
Mt 17, 1Co 13:4


Wednesday 7/21/2021

Thank You Father for breaking the hold sin had over my children. May they receive this incredible gift by faith, believing that through Christ, they have the power to resist sin. I am so grateful that You have made a way for us to travel from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God… may my children see me making the journey… and follow!
Col 1:13-14


Tuesday 7/20/2021

The next time my children are offered an invitation to a pity party, their own or to that of a friend, I pray they turn it down. Let them become so filled with gratitude for all the good in their lives and may their eyesight become so sharp that they are able to point out all the good to others whose sight has grown dim. When they are tempted to focus on the negative, may they remember Christ’s sacrifice and see that the power of the negative forces in their lives can only function if they allow it to… that all sin (this includes sickness, disease, poverty and lack) was nailed to the cross and is powerless… if only they call on You to rescue them!
1Th 5:16-18, Ro 10:13


Monday 7/18/2021

Let the spirit of Christ grow strong in my children, for that is the assurance that they will share in His glory. May Christ’s mighty power mature in them so they can share His glory with others.
Col 1:27


Sunday 7/18/2021

To have a profitable business, my children must know that business inside and out. I pray they approach the Word with even more fervor… spending time each day learning from Your wisdom. For just as one must be well versed in his business to stay afloat and prosper, one must be well versed in the Word to truly succeed in life!
Jas 1:21


Saturday 7/18/2021

Do not allow my children to fret about the unsaved. It is not their job nor do they have the power to save others. Let them live a joyful life knowing You have their back here on earth and that they will spend eternity with You. Their job is to plant the seed then remain humble and trust You enough to do the rest.
Jn 12:32


Friday 7/16/2021

I pray my children seek You for a vision for their future… so that I can become their biggest cheerleader. My spirit agrees with theirs when they are walking in Your will so that I get to support rather than correct! They will not allow facts or naysayers to interfere with their God given visions and they may look to me for a reassuring word or smile in the face of big odds… because I know You are bigger!
Joel 2:28


Thursday 7/15/2021

Dear Lord, I know that you have the power to do anything I ask… and when I don’t please let me acknowledge my lack of faith so You can give me that, too! Today, my children will speak promise and success over their situation (and they always have SOME situation!) They will not rehearse the curse of negativity with ‘whoa is me’ and ‘what am I going to do now’!
Mk 11:12


Wednesday 7/14/2021

Focus my children on solutions… not problems. Let them tackle their day with a happy heart, confidently knowing that You are in control. They will spend at least a few minutes getting the word of God in them either through song, a teacher, nature, or my voice! I believe that their life, health, love and all that encompasses earthly need will prosper as their soul prospers… give them wisdom and circumstance to help feed their souls!
3 Jn 1:2


Tuesday 7/13/2021

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, Ro 14:4


Monday 7/12/2021

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.
Mt 9:38


Sunday 7/11/2021

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!
Isa 55:10-11


Saturday 7/10/2021

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!
He 13:15


Friday 7/09/2021

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.
1Jn 3, Ro 5:5, Tit 3:6, Mt 3:10


Thursday 7/08/2021

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.
Pr 21:13


Wednesday 7/07/2021

If my children don’t have peace, reveal to them the root. If the cause is their own sin may they confess it today, stop the sinful behavior, and most importantly RECEIVE forgiveness so Your joy may come to them!
2Sa 11:27, 1 Jn 1:9
