Prayers For Our Children


Jesus prayed to His Father. Jesus prayed for His disciples. Jesus prays for you and me. How much more should we pray for our children.

I will pray for my children:

1. That they will know Christ early in life. Psalm 63:1; 2 Timothy 3:15

2. That they will hate sin. Psalm 97:10

3. That they will be caught when guilty. Psalm 119:71

4. That they will be protected from the evil one in each area of their lives; spiritual, emotional, physical. John 17:15

5. That they have a responsible attitude in all their personal relationships.
Daniel 6:3

6. That they will respect those in authority over them. Romans 13:1

7. That they will desire the right kind of friends and be protected from the wrong friends. Proverbs 1:10-11

8. That they will be kept from the wrong mate and saved for the right one.
2 Corinthians 6:14-17

9. That they, as well as those they marry, will be kept pure.
1 Corinthians 6:18-20

10. That they will learn to totally submit to God and actively resist Satan in all circumstances. James 4:7

11. That they will be single-hearted, willing to be sold out to Jesus Christ.
Romans 12:1-2

12. That they will be hedged in so they cannot find their way to wrong people or wrong places and that the wrong people cannot find their way to them. Hosea 2:6

You can see there are 12; one for each month. Within a year, you will have consistently prayed this entire list or you could also just pray for all twelve daily. Print this out and keep it somewhere you could pray for them---in your Bible, on the fridge, etc.

  3. These are wonderful reminders that we often times forget. I have not seen such a list in quite sometime. I remember seeing one at one point that had something different for 30 days with the idea of praying for our children each and every day.

  7. Great post!
    When I pray for my kids it never seems to be for anything specific.. protection, good health,etc but these are great points.
    I will print this out and use it as a reminder.
    Thanks!
