Praying for My Children, Part 4 of 4 August 12, 2009

Filed under: Parenting with Purpose — Michelle Ferguson @ 11:15 am

I will wrap-up my last six prayer points of praying for my children with this post.  It is truly a privilege to pray for our children and to watch how God answers.

*That they will be wholeheartedly sold out to serving Jesus Christ (Romans 12: 1-2)

*That they will be hedged in so that they cannot find their way to the wrong people or the wrong places (Hosea 2:6)

*That their children and grandchildren will know Christ as Savior and serve Him with their whole heart, soul, mind, and strength (Matthew 22:37-38)

*That they will have a strong sense of belonging to a family that is loving and dwells together in unity (Psalm 133; Colossians 3:12-14)

*That when they leave home it would be with an eternal perspective and Christ-like values and characteristics (Isaiah 40:8)

*That their entire lives will be a testimony of the greatness and love of Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:15-16; IThessolonians 5:23)

This is by no means an exhaustive list of things to pray, but it is a great start!  Prayer increases our faith, reduces our stress, relieves our worries, and enriches our lives.  Let’s invest time in daily, devoted prayer for our children!  They are worth  it!
