Great God, I present my children before you as I know that your presence is the best place they can be. I thank you for the gift of children that you have given me, and for how you have been protecting and guiding them in all stages of their lives so far. I pray that your tender mercies will continually be their portion. Help them be the head and not the tail in all areas of their lives, that they will show your goodness and grace. Amen
We realize that we do not all have children yet, but it is our prayer that every one of us will have children (of the womb and/or of the heart). So thank God for the children you have and the children you will have. If you are still waiting, pray for each of your future children as though they already are here.
Children are a heritage and a blessing from God and we need to fully appreciate and raise our children with care and diligence. There are so many forces out there desperate to steal our children’s hearts and turn them away from God. So you need to pray, asking Him to keep them and hide them from evil. Pray against bad friends and peer pressure…ask God to surround your children with helpers and people who will help them live right and remain close to God.
Pray for their wives and husbands (even future ones) and ask God to guide your children to the right people. Ask that no evil or destiny stealing man or woman will come near your children. But just as your children will be blessings to everyone they meet, so also their spouses will be blessings to them and add more value to their lives.
Lift up your kids to God and ask him to make them all He intends them to be.
This is Day4 of our 30 day Prayers for your family and today is prayers for your children. You have and unbelievable influence on them and on how they turn out. Spend time in prayer.
