Praying For Our Children…Every Day


Saturday 10/01/2016

Making God the ultimate authority in every decision my children make is the key to unlocking the door that releases peace into their lives. As Christians, the peace is always available to them (as is the love, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, & self-control) but they MUST choose Your will (they know the sound of Your voice they just sometimes ignore it!) and submit to You through obedience.
Galatians 5:22-25

I pray my children recognize that their resources are all from You. May they seek Your will and then believe You. I’m quite sure You are asking them to do far more than they believe they are capable of achieving … and I am even more certain the resources You have given them are far greater than they can even imagine!
Nehemiah 9:15-17

May my children dwell in love, live it and walk it out, and not just love for You but love in action for those around them. For in doing so they place themselves in Your shelter and can weather any storm.
Psalms 91:1

Give my children a heart and mind to work for Your purposes. Show them the plots of the enemy meant to frustrate and halt their progress so they may call on You. May they stand firm in accomplishing all that You have called them to do, even if that means working with one hand and holding a weapon against the enemy in the other.
Nehemiah 4:6, 15, 17

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 im- mediately or ultimately experience peace.
Isaiah 9:6-7, 2Thessalonians 3:16, Galatians 5:22

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

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
