Take time to pray for your children daily. Every morning when I get up there are three things I pray over my children. Make this your prayer too!
1. Father, I thank You for teaching my children to fear (reverence) You because Your Word says that the fear (reverence) of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:10). And with wisdom, they will have long life, honor, and riches. (Proverbs 3:16).
2. Father, surround my kids with a shield of divine favor. I thank You that they will have favor with their teachers, the principals of their schools, their coaches, their employers, etc. They’ll be a highly favored and a blessing everywhere they go. (Psalm 5:12)
3. Father, I ask You to send good friends to my children—godly friends who will sharpen them like iron and cause them to be all You want them to be—and cut away any friends who would drag them down. (Proverbs 27:17)
The Take Away:
Pray these prayers over your children daily and watch God perform his word in your children’s lives!
