3 Daily Prayers For Our Children
I pray the Lord’s prayer (aka the Disciples’ Prayer) every day on waking, but praying it specifically for our children is a great idea, because it is Biblical, simple, and, like a onesie (all-in-one garment), covers everything!
“Please provide them today with their daily needs.”
You can go on to elaborate! These might be physical, emotional, spiritual, relational.
“Please forgive them their sins, and help them to forgive those who have sinned against them.”
Job prayed in this way for his children. Our children need to know God’s forgiveness, as well as the release of being able to forgive – we can pray for this!
“Please keep them away from temptations and all the plans and schemes of the enemy.”
The enemy likes to kill, steal and destroy, but Jesus came to give us abundant life! We can pray for the Lord’s protection over our children, whether it’s worldly pleasures luring them away from walking with God, battles with their own sinful nature, or other external evil influences.
We do not pray to a God who is far away, but a God who is near, and He loves our children even more than we do, so we can pray with confidence. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. So let’s pray!
Thank you for reading – may you be blessed as you pray!
