Prayer for your children

Every parent knows that there’s only so much that they can do for their children. Parents have to trust in God that their children will love Him, be obedient and follow His ways. In this prayer, we focus on God guiding them and that they will make wise decisions in their youth.

In praying for your child/children, say:

“Father  in  Jesus  Name,  I  believe  (Mark  11:24)  that  my  children/child would:
Walk  in  obedience  that  it  may  be  well  with  them/him/her  and live  long  on  the  earth,  for  this  is  well  pleasing  unto  You. (Ephesians  6:1-3,  Colossians  3:20)
