Praying For Our Children…Every Day

Latest

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.

Hebrews 10:38

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 con- necting!

Matthew 24:12, John 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.

Matthew 17, 1Corinthians 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!

Colossians 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!

1Thessalonians 5:16-18, Romans 10:13

Let the spirit of Christ grow strong in my children, for that is the assurance that they will share in His glory. May Christ’s mighty power mature in them so they can share His glory with others.

Colossians 1:27 

Friday 7/18/2014

To have a profitable business, my children must know that business inside and out. I pray they approach the Word with even more fervor … spending time each day learning from Your wisdom. For just as one must be well versed in his business to stay afloat and prosper, one must be well versed in the Word to truly succeed in life!

James 1:21
