10 Things to Pray Over Your Children
I am a firm believer in the power of prayer. I think that as mothers there are certain things we should be praying for regularly and our children are at the top of that list. It can be difficult to figure out exactly what to pray over your kids, especially if they are really young. However, I don't think there is such a thing as starting to pray for them too early.
Here are 10 things to pray over your children.
1. That they don't get lost in the world
Now when I say this, I don't mean literally lost in Africa somewhere, I mean lost in worldly things or ways of living. I pray that they always know right from wrong and they don't do anything, say anything, or go anywhere that they know isn't right in God's eyes. I pray that they choose to follow Jesus and know the deep love he has for them.
2. That they stand firm in their beliefs
This world can be cruel. This world can be tempting. I pray that they stand firm in their beliefs when they are tempted to stray. I pray that they stand firm in their beliefs even when it isn't "cool" or if they are persecuted for it. I pray they know that with God, they can withstand anything that comes their way.
3. That they have a kind heart and brave spirit
I pray that they are kind to everyone they encounter, but that they are brave enough to stand up for themselves. That they are brave when it comes to their faith, their decisions, and their actions.
4. That they be a light
I pray that they shine the light that God has given them. That they radiate the love of Jesus to everyone they meet. That they make a difference in this world and bring others closer to Jesus.
5. That they use their talents
I pray that whatever talent or ability God has given each of them, that they use it to further his kingdom and serve him. I pray that they don't let fear or comparison stop them from using it.
6. That they are strong & courageous
There are so many times Jesus commands us to be strong and courageous. I pray they know that God is with them wherever they go, so they can be strong and courageous to do what is right.
7. That they choose friends wisely
I pray that they surround themselves with Godly influences and friends that truly value one another.
8. That they are protected
I pray that God keeps them safe mentally and physically. That no matter where they go, they are protected.
9. That they find someone who shares their values to share their life with
I pray that they find a Godly spouse. Someone who is patient, kind, and puts you above all else. I pray that their love endures every hardship, tragedy, and trial that comes their way.
10. That they have peace
I pray that they would not be anxious. That when things go wrong they turn to you and they don't let their mind take over.
