Praying For Our Children…Every Day


Sunday 7/08/2018

I pray my children NEVER ignore the poor … for he who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor will also cry himself and not be answered.
Proverbs 21:13

If my children don’t have peace, reveal to them the root. If the cause is their own sin may they confess it today, stop the sinful behavior, and most importantly RECEIVE forgiveness so Your joy may come to them!
2Samuel 11:27, 1 John 1:9

May my children choose to love You. Talk is cheap … their actions prove to You who they serve! You have given each of them the gift of Your voice, the constant presence of Knowledge available to them. I pray with all my heart they learn to LISTEN to You (that still, small voice in their minds!) I pray Your presence outgrows the overpowering ‘promptings’ of the enemy that come in the form of peer pressure, media, celebrity, and physical desire to make my children believe satisfying the craving’s of their flesh in ways that dishonor God is perfectly acceptable because “everyone is doing it … their parents don’t care!”
Romans 8:29-30

Give my children the wisdom necessary to understand the magnitude of Christ’s sacrifice. You teach us that sin has earthly consequences and You also teach us how to avoid the eternal consequences of our sin. Open my children’s hearts and make them tender … may they feel the pain of their own sin so that they accept the full measure of Your forgiveness. May they turn from their sin and live only for You.
2Samuel 12:9-14

Don’t let my children conform to this world but let them be transformed by the renewal of their mind. Give me a heart to be their spiritual blacksmith so that I may use my time with them wisely … molding them to follow You.
1Samuel 13:19

Do not let my children develop an attitude of superiority. You created them to carry the burdens of others … and their load will require assistance, too. Let them receive the understanding and concept of teamwork and allow themselves to need help.The people You then place alongside them will take their breath away!
1Kings 10:20

May those who care for my children find rest. Your Word teaches us that the natural path away from depression, lack of perspective, and a sense of hopelessness is to rest our bodies, receive the love being poured out to us by friends, and banish the whispers of fear by replacing them with Your voice and the promises found in Your Word. Give my children adults who live by these principles, especially in their darkest moments. Life goes on … may we all live to our potential EVERYDAY regardless of our circumstance … the next generation is watching!
1Kings 19

Sunday 7/01/2018

Show my children the steps they need to take to express their love to others … love is an action word. Let them begin to spend more time focusing on building relationships than building their toy box. This wisdom will naturally come to them as they are faced with their own mortality … they won’t long for their accumulated possessions as they prepare to exit this world … they will long for people. Give my children a vision of this now … and revolutionize their priorities!
1 John 3:8, Psalms 2:8

Saturday 6/30/2018

May my children have good success in all of their endeavors, producing the desired results … and maintaining a heart filled with joy regardless of circumstance. For a life lived well is a great testament to the promises of Your Love. Teach my children to verbally give all credit to You alone … for when they do, Your blessings come upon them and satisfy the longings of their souls.
Psalms 107

Friday 6/29/2018

Keep my children from believing the lie that the thing they desire most will bring them the happiness they so desperately crave (be it a relationship, their health, a certain possession, financial security, etc …). Teach my children that true happiness comes when they trust You for what they need, knowing if it’s right You’ll provide it, and if not, You’ll give them something better!
Mark 4:19
