Praying For Our Children…Every Day

Everyone has problems. Help my children see theirs differently and know that a problem is a sign they have a promise! As they suffer temporary situations or the actions of others they will learn to trust that You are steadfast and Your plan is to bless them … that as they suffer trials … if they persevere … not only will their character grow but so will their level of blessing!
1Corinthians 10:13, Genesis 50:20

Give my children perspective, not letting them become too attached to this world. Forget Disneyland and European vacations … give them visions of Heaven and the perfection that abounds there … for we are each on earth for only a while but those who repent and turn to God through Jesus Christ will spend eternity in a place they can only imagine in their dreams!
John 14:1-3, Revelation 21:2


Friday 6/22/2018

Transform my children by renewing their minds. Please find a way to bring the Word into their lives today, giving them a desire to know how You want them to live. Obedience to Your Word is the best way for all of us to find what we are looking for … but the enemy is working overtime to keep us from learning how to live!
Romans 12:2


Thursday 6/21/2018

Place a burning desire in my children’s hearts to read Your Word … for every answer to every problem they are facing today can be found in their Bible. The printed words are like pipes, transporting life giving water into their souls … but they must learn to connect themselves to the source of Your joy, comfort, peace, and prosperity by actually reading the Word!
Malachi 15:6, John 1:14, John 7:37-38


Wednesday 6/20/2018

Let each of my children be an instrument of peace … taking risks to be the voice of reason in a fallen world. We all need to reach out to our world to prevent others from choosing sin, to offer alternatives and God’s wisdom … please give my children the strength and most importantly a humble spirit to help others in this way.
1Samuel 25:32


Tuesday 6/19/2018

May my children’s ears be opened to the voice of reason. God will send wisdom through others, especially in the area of vengeance … and if my children withstand the urge to repay evil for evil … God will fight their battles and my children will see victory!
1Samuel 25

Thank You for allowing winds to come against my children. For it is in weathering their storms that they develop the strength and character necessary to succeed throughout their lives.
James 1:2-4

Endurance simply means outlasting the problem. Help my children endure the hardship they are facing today. Place warriors alongside them that don’t quit so my children will know the hope and joy endurance brings.
Hebrews 10:36


Saturday 6/16/2018

Let my children rejoice in triumph of their everyday battles and not become weary … it is a sign that God is preparing them for greater battles that will not only result in rich blessing for their own lives but eventually advance the Kingdom of Heaven.
1Samuel 17:37

May my children wake up today and see only two people groups, those in Christ Jesus and those not. I pray they lavish love on both groups of people.

When my children experience the majesty and beauty of the natural world, may they remember Christ and know that He is the restorer of their souls … that He is altogether lovely … and their friend!

Give my children a humble spirit that they may come before You and ask You to help their weakness of faith … so that You can begin transforming their heart and teaching them that all things are possible to those that believe.
Mark 9:23-24


Tuesday 6/12/2018

Let my children be grateful. Teach them the ‘reinforcement principle’ … they get more of what they acknowledge … so that they begin to routinely thank the ones they love for even the smallest favor. They already practice common courtesy when they are in public, thanking coaches, the lunch lady, the checkout clerks … let them bring that gratitude home!
Romans 13:7


Monday 6/11/2018

For their own good, I pray my children make up their minds to walk with You and follow Your plan!
Ephesians 1:11

I pray my children humble themselves and begin to understand their relationship with You. We are Your tools and You are the master craftsman. You give us talents and the will to develop them … You open doors and bring provision … we MUST give all glory to You … or we will fall.
Isaiah 9:12-18


Saturday 6/09/2018

Lord, I pray my children put all doubts aside regarding the state of their salvation. They have asked You to be their Lord and Savior through the sacrifice of Christ Jesus … and their hearts are being transformed as they work to remove sin from their lives (however slowly … teenagers!) Once the doubt is gone, they will truly be free to live wholly for you …and become the effective people You made them to be while on this planet.
Hebrews 5:12-14, Acts 10:43


Friday 6/08/2018

I pray my children put all anxiety to rest and learn to pray with grateful hearts making their requests known to You … for You promise Your peace in the hearts and minds of those who begin to trust and rely on Christ Jesus!
Philippians 4:6-7


Thursday 6/07/2018

May my children remain practical and stand firm against the enemy using the tools they have worked with all of their lives. Just as You prepared David to battle Goliath with a slingshot and a stone, thank You for preparing my children to face their giants according to their experiences and skill set.
Samuel 17:39


Wednesday 6/06/2018

Do not let my children become discouraged by their past mistakes. It’s over! Your word says that you heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds. Open my children’s hearts so your Spirit may pour into them and get to work.
Psalms 147:3


Tuesday 6/05/2018

We are commanded by Jesus Christ not to worry. Most of the trouble my children fear will never happen … worry is simply Satan’s tool to steal their day … and eventually their life!
Matthew 6:25


Monday 6/04/2016

Thank You for making my children free to run, free to dance, free to live for You! May they embrace this amazing gift and make the most of this day … it’s not over yet … the best is yet to come!
John 8:36


Sunday 6/03/2018

May my children look to God alone for direction and not become dependent on the world to define who they will become.

Saturday 6/02/2018

As my children live in obedience, they will receive the blessings God prepares for them in a timely manner … it is when they stray from their intended path that delays most likely occur!
1Samuel 9


Friday 6/01/2018

Give my children a heart of wisdom. Help them understand the importance of developing their gifts and using their passions to make the world a better place … give them the insight to put it all together and accept beyond doubt that they are here to introduce You to others … not save others … that is Your job … their job is to make sure the world knows about Your love … simply by just being their true selves.
Romans 12:12, Proverbs 11:30&19:21, IJohn 5:10, IThessalonians 1:8, Mark 15:15, Psalms 67:2, Ephesians 5:15
