10 Important Prayers for Your Children

This past week my oldest turned 21. My youngest is 16. There is never a day that goes by that I don’t fervently pray for both of them. I try not to let myself worry, because we know that worry is a sin and the devils work. Instead I pray that God protects them, watches over them, keeps them healthy, and leads them down the right path.

As parents it is our job to teach our kids right from wrong, guide them, be there for them, provide boundaries, let them make mistakes, and pray for them.

Some days are harder than others. You mind will start to wander and you imagine the worse. That is when you have to tell yourself that the devil needs to get off your shoulder. If you have done your job as a parent and you have given it to God, then you just have to trust.

protection

I pray for their protection from evil and the ugliness in this world.

I pray now that You would protect my children as they go throughout their days. Hem them in behind and before and lay Your hand upon them (Psalm 139:5). Do not let any harm come to them. Keep each of my children safe beneath Your wings and guard them against any plots that are meant to harm or bring ruin to them. Be close to each of my children, Lord, surround them with Your favor as with a shield (Psalm 5:11-12).

courage

I pray that they remain courageous and stand up for what is right and not succumb to evil and wrongdoing.

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm”[Ephesians 6:13]

strength

I pray daily for them to be strong, physically, and emotionally.

I can do all things through him who strengthens me. ~ Philippians 4:13

peace

I pray for them to have peace with their lives and the things going on around them

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. ~ Philippians 4:6

health

I pray for their health; physical and emotional

compassion and kindness

I pray that they have an open heart, have compassion for others and always offer kindness

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. ~ Ephesians 4:32

direction and wisdom

I pray daily that they make the right choices, they follow the path that the Lord has laid before them and they are wise in their decisions

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your pathsProverbs 3:5-6

love

I pray that they experience love and know how to love

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. ~ 2 Corinthians 13
