Praying For Our Children…Every Day

Uncategorized

Thursday 5/31/2018

Reveal Your magnificence to my children … use the mountains, the testing of someone like Nick Vujicic (worth Googling), or the wonder of the tiny snowflake … just help my children view themselves in relation to You so they may remain humble … for only the humble will be lifted up and their lives made significant!
James 4:10, 14


Wednesday 5/30/2018

Help my children see that becoming a person of discipline has nothing to do with talent or conditions … it is about choice! As they work to reach the goals they have made for themselves, give them the spirit of practice … keep that fire of desire burning in them and the discipline needed to accomplish what they set out to achieve. They are young, but their dreams are strong. If my children learn that they have what it takes to accomplish the goals of their youth … I can’t help but grin as I imagine the impact they will have on this planet throughout their lives!
1Timothy 4:15


Tuesday 5/29/2018

I pray my children love those around them and remain faithful to others You place in their lives. When they do, my children’s lives will not only be filled with earthly blessings but more importantly have access to Your place of Shelter … and remind them that love is “doing” not just “feeling!” Show them opportunities to love others today through acts of kindness …. then give them to courage and selflessness to follow through.
Ruth 3:12


Monday 5/28/2018

Dear Lord, in the face of my children’s most grievous trouble, remind them to bend down and pray, that nothing is too hard for You. Your word tells my children that You will bend down and listen to them … but first they must submit to Your authority and have faith that You do indeed have the power to fulfill Your promises!
Psalms 116:1-6


Sunday 5/27/2019

Let my children savor the fruits of their own industry. Give them a spirit of independence so they taste the exquisite reward of freedom … then let them readily share the overflowing abundance of their hearts and their treasure … for when they truly love others my children will begin to see God’s hand working in this world.
Zechariah 3:10, Matthew 5:8


Saturday 5/26/2018

God gives different missions to different people, and equips each person to accomplish their purpose. Don’t let my children get bogged down with hang ups about other people’s gifts. Help them see that it is not only a waste of time, but questions Your authority and capability. I pray my children do what they were made to do, let others be free to do what they were sent to do, and rejoice in everyone’s differences! Let my children celebrate each other’s gifts and know that it is all for the Glory of God … not theirs!
Galatians 2:7-8


Friday 5/25/2018

As my children mature allow me to give them the dignity of making more and more of their own mistakes and then letting them learn from those experiences. They belong to You not me … keep me from hindering You from working in their lives by over parenting.
Romans 12:16, 14:3, 14:23


Thursday 5/24/2018

Secure my children’s values so they stand firm when tempted. May they know who they are. Then release them from the urge to compare themselves to others, especially those that are not pleasing You. Give them the grace to free others from conforming to their standards and the security to believe that judgment is Your job … not theirs.
2Corinthians 10:2, Romans 14:4


Wednesday 5/23/2018

Teach my children to speak their truth … to know who they are, why they are here … and have the courage to live accordingly. God, You gave each of my children a plan and a purpose and through Jesus Christ they will discover their own personal truth … and when they do and choose to live accordingly, they will be free.
Psalms 15:2, John 8:32, Ephesians 4:1


Tuesday 5/22/2018

Blaze Your promises on my children’s hearts. As they see Your promises come to fruition their trust in You will become unshakable. May I stand on Your promises as I face today’s struggles and may I display the fruits of Your Spirit; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. As I do, my children will want what I have and follow me … not their peers.
Hebrews 6:12-15, Galatians 5:22-23


Monday 5/21/2018

As a new day dawns, show my children what old ‘thing or habit’ they need to get rid of. They will not be held back by the past. They will move boldly into this day, their future … with no baggage or regret!
Isaiah 43:18


Sunday 5/10/2018

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


Friday 5/18/2018

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


Thursday 5/17/2018

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


Saturday 5/12/2018

Give my children the kind of faith that will give them the patience to wait for everything good that they want. Let them delight in and celebrate You so that You will give them the desires of their heart.
Psalms 37:4,7


Friday 5/11/2018

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


Tuesday 5/08/2018

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.
1John 1:9


Monday 5/07/2018

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.
Philippians 3:9-10


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


Friday 5/04/2018

Equip my children with all they need for doing Your will. Produce in them, through the power of Jesus Christ all that is pleasing to You.
Hebrews 13:20
