Praying For Our Children…Every Day


Wednesday 9/26/2018

We cannot produce peace, it is a fruit of the Spirit. When my children received Christ they also received His peace … they just don’t always know how to activate it. May they allow the Prince of Peace to govern their lives because it is in circumstances where my children submit to His will (not theirs) that they immediately or ultimately experience peace.
Isaiah 9:6-7, 2Thessalonians 3:16, Galatians 5:22

Tuesday 9/25/2018

May the Lord make my children increase, excel, and overflow in love for one another and for all people … just as I do for them!
1Thessalonians 2:14

Monday 9/24/2018

Give my children resiliency and a sense of humor. They are a love letter from Christ to the world … and a crabby attitude to their lives is like illegible handwriting to Christ’s love letter.
2 Corinthians 3:3

Sunday 9/23/2018

Thank You for giving my children Your Word and giving me the insight to release its power into their lives. May they exercise the power of the Word in their own lives by learning to adhere to, trust in, and rely on it!
1 Thessalonians 2:13

Saturday 9/22/2018

Teach my children that Christ has redeemed them from every curse of the law, including sickness and disease … that Jesus bore their sickness for them not with them. Reveal to my children the ways in which the enemy is blocking the manifestation of their healing so they can act to unlock Your promises into their lives!
Galatians 3:13, Matthew 8:17, James 5:15-16

Friday 9/21/2018

I pray that at some point in this day I will have the opportunity to teach my children that good and evil are both present in each of our hearts … and that whichever we choose to feed is the one we will become.
Romans 12:21

Thursday 9/20/2018

Thank you for giving me Your peace. If I become wrought up or anxious about anything today, remind me that I am wasting treasure. Show me that it is as silly as swimming in a crystal clean river and complaining of thirst. Help me teach this to my children.
John 14:7

Wednesday 9/19/2018

When my children are knowingly or unknowingly walking in sin, cause their hearts to soften. May they hear and heed Your messengers rather than mock Your rebukes. Yes, gossip really does sting back and those innocent white lies are still entrances for the enemy. There are natural consequences to sin … may my children repent and turn to You before it’s too late!
2 Chronicles 36:14-16

Tuesday 9/18/2018

Teach my children to be content regardless of circumstances. Once they finally learn to depend on You to fill their needs they will be free. Free from the bad moods of others, the ugly words of others, the gloom others bring into their day … my children were created with a need only You can fill … let them STOP depending on circumstances or loved ones to fill them up!
Philippians 4:11-13

Monday 9/17/2018

Give my children a pure heart. Place in them a desire to study Your word and identify all sin lurking in the corners if their life. Let them receive Your cleansing so their hearts will be free to obey You.
Matthew 5:8, Hebrew 12:1, John 15:3, Psalms 50:10

Sunday 9/16/2019

May my children recognize who they are … clay in the Potter’s hand. The pressure, spinning and heat may at times feel ‘too much’ for them as their lives are shaped and formed into vessels God can use to bless … as well as bless others.
Isaiah 64:8

Saturday 9/15/2018

I pray my children don’t become lifelong whiners … and I pray even harder that I don’t get sucked in by those who do! Give my children warrior spirits so they don’t freak out when they encounter trials (at least not for long!) Let me teach them (by example) to rise in the midst of adversity rather than wilt!
Proverbs 31:15

Friday 9/14/2018

Pride is the bitter enemy of my children. Humility is their dear friend. May I humble myself before God so that humility will be mine. As my children witness my actions they will see with their physical eyes my transformation as I am given a humble heart. They will witness the blessing of God’s strength in my life and the benefits that come with it … and want You for themselves!
James 4:10, 1Peter 5:6, Job 38

Thursday 9/13/2018

The power of sin is broken in my children’s lives. If they choose to receive it (by walking out their faith) then they get to live in the kingdom of God while on earth rather than the kingdom of Satan. Thank You that my children do not have to live in sickness, poverty, depression, controlled by lusts and all the consequences that result from sinful behavior.
Colossians 1:13-14

Wednesday 9/12/2018

When my children recognize they are worrying about something, prompt them to repent then turn to You in gratitude for what they already have … and prayer to strengthen and prepare them for the task at hand.
Philippians 4:6

Tuesday 9/11/2018

As we remember the historical winds of terror brought upon our nation by enemies, let those memories serve to remind us that we are ONE nation under God. That united as one body, each taking our place to serve the needs of our fellow Americans … as well as future generations … that the enemy will fall and in Christ we will stand victorious. May we remember the passion that united us … to forever fuel our daily devotion of service to one another, our country and our God.
Romans 12:4-11

Monday 9/10/2018

May my children add You to their speed dial … calling on You first when they have a problem. Their faith grows as they stand firm and believe You can bring comfort and victory to their lives.
2Chronicles 20:17

Sunday 9/09/2018

I pray my children learn this pattern: seek You, listen, trust You, then praise You while they wait! Help my children understand that praising You is the KEY to unlocking Your power into their current situation. It is all about faith … and when their faces are long and their spirits are hopeless … their faith suffers and so does the measure of the power behind it.
2Chronicles 20:3, 20:15, 20:21-22

Saturday 9/08/2018

Of course my children will fall, that is the nature of humanity! I pray they don’t view the fall as the end … but the beginning. Thank You for extending Your hand down to them … I pray they take it, rise in Your strength and finish the course You have set before them!
Proverbs 25:16

Friday 9//7/2018

The hands of angels are holding my children, guiding them and protecting them from danger. I pray my children feel the warmth and protection of these celestial beings sent to them from God … I pray I feel them too!
Daniel 10:10

Thursday 9/6/2018

You planted my children in the garden of their lives. Show them their role in tending that garden … that everything they need is there, but they must work it and take care of it to produce fruit. You give my children all the resources, but they must do their part!
Genesis 2:8, 2:15

Wednesday 9/05/2018

You have planned out and made ready the good life for my children to live. Your Word does not promise a ‘bad life’ for my children … show them who they are living for when they make bad choices (the enemy) … and please help them stay on Your ‘good path’ so they may experience Your peace, joy and fulfillment!
Ephesians 2:10

Tuesday 9/04/2018

The seeds have been planted! My children have talents they haven’t discovered and dreams that haven’t been filled. Give them the faith and patience to know they are evolving … to keep them humble in seasons of great harvest … and strong in times of lack.
Genesis 2:8

Monday 9/03/2018

May my children hear the whisper moving them to serve others. Their physical eyes hinder their God given sight … let them see past the physical imperfections of others and see what God sees!
1John 2:20, John 16:14
