4 Most Powerful Prayers For Your Children

We are full of so much joy and happiness on special occasions like Christmas, New Year, Weddings, Birthdays, Valentine days, Graduation, etc.  We feel loved seeing our friends and loved ones around us. So much joy, laughter and giving of gifts is the order of the day because the day has been marked ‘SPECIAL’.  So is the birth of a child.  I see the day a child is born to be a joyous day.  The pain during pregnancy and delivery are all forgotten immediate the beautiful gift is born.  Psalm 127:3 make us understand that children are an heritage (a gift) from the Lord.  John 16:21  also indicated that “When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.”

A gift needs to be taken care of and praying for our children is one of the ways to show our love and concern for their physical, spiritual & emotional needs.  Be encouraged by these scriptures.

God’s Blessings
Pray for their lives to be preserved by God and that they’ll walk in the fear and knowledge of God.  We saw this in the life of Abraham who prayed for his son Ishmael.  So Abraham said to God, “May Ishmael live under your special blessing!” Genesis 17:18 (NLT)

A Devoted Heart
Pray for your children to have a devoted heart to keep God’s commands.  An example is David, for Solomon Give my son Solomon the wholehearted desire to obey all your commands, laws, and decrees, and to do everything necessary to build this Temple, for which I have made these preparations.” 1 Chronicles 29:19 (NLT)

Forgiveness Of Sins
Pray and constantly (i.e. daily) ask for the forgiveness of sins for your children.  Job consecrated and offered burnt offerings to the Lord on behalf of all his children and he did this continually.  And when the days of the feast had run their course, Job would send and consecrate them, and he would rise early in the morning and offer burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Job said, “It may be that my children have sinned, and cursed[a] God in their hearts.” Thus Job did continually.” Job 1:5 (ESV)

Health
Always pray for their health without giving up.  Pray for their physical and emotional health including any demonic attacks, etc. Build a life of FAITH to see deliverance in the lives of your children.  James 5:15 says  ”And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.”  The Syrophoenician Woman exhibited great faith for the healing of her daughter – Mark 7:26-30

May we be women of faith who always have a relentless life of prayer.

 

 

The Giver Of Perfect Peace

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you – Isaiah 26:3 (NIV)

Lord, I rejoice in you because your portion for me is to dwell in a peaceable habitation.  I thank you for your promise of perfect peace as I trust in you.

I confess that I shall be surrounded with your peace and nothing shall make me afraid.  Let my mind be steady and help me to always trust in you.  amen

Not Easily Broken

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.  – Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NIV)

Thank you heavenly father for our marriage.  Thank you for being the solid foundation of our marriage.  May we be strong and united because we have made you our foundation.

Help us to always have a close relationship with you.  A divided family cannot stand therefore cause us to remain united.  May we find unconditional friendship in each other and may we remain like a twisted threefold cord which is not easily broken.  amen

Why Are You Worried?

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (NIV) – Philippians 4:6

Thank you Lord for the opportunity to put all my cares and worries on you.  I pray for strength to overcome the fear of the future.

Holy Spirit take control of every situation that has troubled my mind.  By prayer and petition, with thanksgiving I commit my challenges and requests to you Lord.

Fill my heart with faith instead of worry.  amen

Loving Each Other Deeply

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. (NIV) – 1 Peter 4:8

Thank you Lord for your marvelous love.  Thank you for the love we share as a couple.  We know there are times we both failed and hurt each other.  Teach us how to love deeply for we now know that love covers a multitude of sins.

Above all may we seek the best for each other unselfishly.  amen.

Why You Shouldn’t Worry

“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life–whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?”-(NIV)

Matthew 6:25

Creator of the universe I thank you.  The Lord my provider I thank you.  Thank you for the abundance of your grace.  I know you are the God of all flesh and there is nothing too difficult for you.

I have realised that worrying will not change my situation.  I therefore reject the tendency to worry over things I cannot change in my own power.

Thank you Lord because you will provide for all my need just as you do for the birds of the air.  amen

Seeking God

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

Jeremiah 29:13

Lord, I desire and want to know you more.  Cause me to understand your word.  Help me to be patient in my journey to seek you.

I totally surrender my heart to you and as I seek to find you let me be obedient to your word. amen

The Gospel, The Power of God

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.”

Romans 1:16

Lord, I thank you for my salvation.  Thank you for the gospel which carries the power to change me.

I am not ashamed of this gospel.  I ask for confidence and boldness to share it with others so they can also see the light and the power of your word.  amen.

The Living Bread

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” (NIV) – Matthew 4:4

Your word oh Lord is my daily food.  As I taste your good word may I be nourished.  I pray that your word will be deeply rooted in my heart that it’ll bring forth fruit.

I ask for the spirit of meekness to always abide in your word.  Holy Spirit be my guide and teacher.  amen.

Honey on My Lips

“How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” – Psalm 119:103 (NIV)

Lord, thank you for your word which is divinely sweet to my taste.  I ask that you place a deep desire for your word in my heart and cause me to read, discern and enjoy it.

Let the words that proceed from my mouth be faith building & may they be sweeter to the hearers.  amen.
