Praying for our Children … Day 13

Jeremiah 13:11

As a loincloth clings to a man’s waist, so I created Judah and Israel to cling to me, says the LORD. They were to be my people, my pride, my glory–an honor to my name. But they would not listen to me.  NLT

Precious Lord

I pray that my children would

cling to you,

hold on to you,

stick to you,

stand and abide by you,

cherish you,

remain true to you

and have faith in you and only you.

I pray that in their lifetime, they would bring you praise, glory and honor.

I pray that they not only hear your words, but walk in obedience to your voice, serving no other Gods but you.

I pray that they would not depart from you Oh Lord, but cleave to you.

Amen

Praying for our Children… Day 12

Dear Lord

I pray that kindness, truth and love will never leave my children

I pray that they would bind them around their neck and write them on the tablet of their hearts, so that they will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man.

I pray that they will trust you with all their hearts, leaning not on their own understanding.

I pray that they will acknowledge you in all their ways, and that as they do this, you will make all their paths straight.

Proverbs 3:4-6

Amen

Precious Lord

I pray that my children will be kind women and men of God, who are of a humble and broken spirit.

I pray that they would tremble at your word and revere your commands.

I pray that they will acknowledge you in all their ways, so that you will make their  paths straight.

I pray that they will not be wise in their own eyes.

That they will fear the Lord and turn from evil.

That this will be healing to their bodies and refreshment to their bones.

Amen

Praying for our children … Day 10

Precious Lord

I pray that my children would be protected from sinful men, men who will influence them in the wrong way

I pray that they would be protected from sinful paths and wrong choices

That your Holy Spirit would convict them and redirect them and keep them on the right paths – paths of righteousness.

I pray that they will have friends who are founded on your word, and who will have a positve influence in their lives.

I pray that they too will be positive influencers in their generation.

As iron sharpens Iron.. may they have such friends, given by you.

 

Praying for our children … Day 9

Precious Lord

I pray that my children will choose what is right and what brings honor to your Name

I pray Lord that they will not harbour sin in their hearts but will be quick to confess and repent, turning away from sin and walking righteously before you.

I pray Lord that when they do sin, they will be caught.

Amen

Just a follow up note on this prayer:

My older friend and mentor P keeps emphasizing that we need to pray that when our kids sin, they be caught. Why? so that you can correct them and train them in the way they should go.  If they are doing something wrong, e.g lying, and are not caught, then it becomes a habit and eventually a lifestyle.

Praying for our children … Day 8

Precious Lord

I pray that the you, the Eternal God will be my children’s refuge 

and that your eternal arms will be under them.

I pray that you would drive their enemies from before them.

I pray that my children will live in safety,

I pray that you will be their protecting shield and triumphant sword.

Deuteronomy 33: 27-29

Amen

Praying for our children… Day 7

Dear Lord

I pray that my children will be rich in favor

I pray that they will be full of the Lords blessings

May they posses the west and the south

May they bath their feet in olive oil

and Lord, May they be secure all the days of their lives.

Deuteronomy 33:23-25

Amen!
