Praying For Our Children…Every Day

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.

Psalms 34:1, 22:3

Tuesday 2/25/2020

I pray my children view their circumstances with You as the focal point and see that their problems are a platform to display Your power to act on their behalf … may they understand this, stand firm in their faith, and NOT let the enemy get the best of them!

By faith, my children will walk under the protection of their Lord. They will serve You and have no fear of being tormented or injured by the creatures of the pit.

Revelation 14:4-5

Help my children see that constantly seeking council from friends is a sign they aren’t hearing and understanding Your voice. Gently correct their sins so that their hearts will be pure and they can receive Your words.

Friday 2/21/2020

Help my children understand that many are called to God but few are chosen. They must put on the robe of righteousness when presenting themselves before God. Show them that Jesus Christ is that robe and then help dress them for the rest of their lives in Your eternal garment.

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

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
