Praying For Our Children…Every Day

Latest

Let my children savor the fruits of their own industry. Give them a spirit of independence so they taste the exquisite reward of freedom … then let them readily share the overflowing abundance of their hearts and their treasure … for when they truly love others my children will begin to see God’s hand working in this world.

Zechariah 3:10, Matthew 5:8

God gives different missions to different people, and equips each person to accomplish their purpose. Don’t let my children get bogged down with hang ups about other people’s gifts. Help them see that it is not only a waste of time, but questions Your authority and capability. I pray my children do what they were made to do, let others be free to do what they were sent to do, and rejoice in everyone’s differences! Let my children celebrate each other’s gifts and know that it is all for the Glory of God … not theirs!

Galatians 2:7-8

As my children mature allow me to give them the dignity of making more and more of their own mistakes and then letting them learn from those experiences. They belong to You not me … keep me from hindering You from working in their lives by over parenting.

Romans 12:16, 14:3, 14:23

Secure my children’s values so they stand firm when tempted. May they know who they are. Then release them from the urge to compare themselves to others, especially those that are not pleasing You. Give them the grace to free others from conforming to their standards and the security to believe that judgment is Your job … not theirs.

2Corinthians 10:2, Romans 14:4

Teach my children to speak their truth … to know who they are, why they are here … and have the courage to live accordingly. God, You gave each of my children a plan and a purpose and through Jesus Christ they will discover their own personal truth … and when they do and choose to live accordingly, they will be free.

Psalms 15:2, John 8:32, Ephesians 4:1MAY 32

Blaze Your promises on my children’s hearts. As they see Your promises come to fruition their trust in You will become unshakable. May I stand on Your promises as I face today’s struggles and may I display the fruits of Your Spirit; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. As I do, my children will want what I have and follow me … not their peers.

 

Hebrews 6:12-15, Galatians 5:22-23

As a new day dawns, show my children what old ‘thing or habit’ they need to get rid of. They will not be held back by the past. They will move boldly into this day, their future … with no baggage or regret!

Isaiah 43:18
