Praying For Our Children…Every Day

Teach my children that earthly prosperity is NOT the goal but the result! Help them understand that seeking Your will then following it is the goal… for they will become so filled with joy, peace, and love that prosperity will simply become a fringe benefit… the frosting on the cake… and every parent knows that frosting makes you sick if that is all you get!

2Co 8:9, 3 Jn 1:2, Jn 15:4, 11

When Jesus died he did not leave my children an inheritance of junk, he left them His most prized possession… His peace. I pray my children learn the combination to the safe (submission to the Holy Spirit) and choose to withdraw peace from their ‘trust account’ daily. I say choose because it is up to them… I pray their vision increases through faith so they may ‘see’ and embrace all that Christ has accomplished and bequeathed to them!
Col 3:15, Jn 14:27, Gal 5:22, Jn 14:1

In the midst of my children’s pain, let them find someone who is hurting and offer them help and hope. In doing so they will please God and possibly save a life!
Lk 23:39-43, Ac 7:59-60

Faith enables my children to receive what God has already done. He has already made my children healthy, wealthy and wise… but they must believe it to receive it. May my children remain patience and steadfast in their faith as they mature in Christ and transform their lives and their destiny through obedience to Your Word.
Mk 11:22-23, 3 Jn 1:2, Heb 11:1

Give my children tunnel vision… help them see what You see. A lost friend doesn’t result in a life of loneliness; a bad grade doesn’t result in a life of poverty, and a pimple doesn’t mark them for a life of failure. May they walk by faith and not by sight, trusting You to “have their back” as they face another day.
Heb 10:38

As my children mature, give them the right amount of Your wisdom at just the right time. May they steadily grow in Your Word so they don’t become overwhelmed and stumble. Your promises are great… but we must each learn the doors we must walk through in order to receive them.
Ps 112:1

Make my children strong… may they NEVER opt for the easy way out and detach from people. Christ gave his life for people… and we were left here on this earth for the purpose of connecting!
Mt 24:12, Jn 17:18

Show my children that keeping score is a sign of immaturity. Show them that forgiveness is defined by their actions… and that if they truly forgive someone who offended or hurt them, their actions towards that person will communicate that fact. Rather than withdraw their spirit and retreat into a protective shell around those who have brought pain to their lives or rather than boil over with anger in their presence… my children will have the courage to ACT in love towards them… offering patience and acts of kindness. They don’t have to stay in relationship, that requires earned trust, but they must be able to smile and have a genuine heart of forgiveness towards the offenders.
Mt 17, 1Co 13:4

Thank You Father for breaking the hold sin had over my children. May they receive this incredible gift by faith, believing that through Christ, they have the power to resist sin. I am so grateful that You have made a way for us to travel from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God… may my children see me making the journey… and follow!
Col 1:13-14

The next time my children are offered an invitation to a pity party, their own or to that of a friend, I pray they turn it down. Let them become so filled with gratitude for all the good in their lives and may their eyesight become so sharp that they are able to point out all the good to others whose sight has grown dim. When they are tempted to focus on the negative, may they remember Christ’s sacrifice and see that the power of the negative forces in their lives can only function if they allow it to… that all sin (this includes sickness, disease, poverty and lack) was nailed to the cross and is powerless… if only they call on You to rescue them!
1Th 5:16-18, Ro 10:13
