Praying For Our Children…Every Day


Friday 11/09/2018

Somehow show my children (in a way that makes sense to them) that their job as Your child is to trust You … to be happy today even if they are in pain … For You have deprived it of power to harm them and have conquered it for them!

John 16:33

May my children STOP trying to humanize God. Yes, He loves those we perceive as bad … as much as those we perceive as good. We tend to love people based on their actions … God loves them based on who He is!

Psalms 107:15-20

May my children feel secure enough to approach You honestly with the secret struggles of their mind … for You promise to keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast because he trusts in You!

Thank You Lord for loving my children enough to make them miserable in their rebellion … for allowing darkness to follow rebellion … for sometimes we need darkness before we can see the tiny portal of light leading to freedom. Thank You for satisfying my children’s longings and filling their hungry souls … I respect and appreciate any method You choose!

Psalms 107:9-10

As my children mature, I pray they begin to rejoice when they see people acting differently from ‘the world’ … following the Lord in obedience instead! When my children truly begin to serve You … their definition of ‘cool’ will completely change from those imitating Hollywood … to those imitating Christ!

1 Corinthians 13:6

Teach my children to put all anxiety to rest and learn to pray the life changing power available to those who live a life pleasing to you … may the resurrected power of Christ dwell in my children so they may become a mighty force for Your kingdom leading Your sheep back home!

James 5:16-20

I pray my children will invite the Word to penetrate them through and through with its full power and authority for the purpose of sanctifying them as they are trying to walk with You while battling peer pressure.

John 17:15-18, 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

To live obedient lives … my children are not called to perfection and sinlessness but a lifestyle of confession and repentance when they sin. Rather than living miserably by a set of laws, they must come to see God’s Word as their safe harbor. Obedient lives love and treasure their time reading God’s Word and experiencing the presence of the Spirit working through them.
Matthew 26:42, John 4:34, John 6:38

Reveal to my children the secret to experiencing Your constant presence … God walks with and pours blessing upon those walking with Him, not the other way around! May my children learn to walk with God rather than begging Him to walk with them!
2 Corinthians 2:14, Psalms 84:5

The fiery trials that come against my children are meant to burn the ropes that bind them and set my children free. May they stand in fearless confidence with steadfast patience and endurance so they may fully accomplish the will of God and receive what is promised!
Hebrews 10:35-36, Daniel 3:23-25
