This kind of goes along with yesterday’s post about praying for your child to make good decisions. This was in Finn’s bag when he came home from pre-school Wednesday.
Prayers for Your Child
That he might choose good friends and not those that might lead him down the wrong paths. (Psalm 1:1-3)
That he might not be sassy or smart-mouthed. (Psalms 19:14)
That he might show evidence of salvation. (Matt. 7:16-20)
That he might date only Christians and then marry a Christian. (II Cor. 6:14)
That his will might be channeled into the right direction. (Phil. 2:13)
That he might have God’s wisdom as he makes decisions. (James 1:5; 3:17 and Proverbs 23:23-26)
That he might discipline himself to study at home and at school. (II Tim. 2:15)
That he will be a witness for Christ at school in word and deed. (I Tim. 4:12)
That God will keep him from having nightmares. (Isaiah 26: 3)
That he would learn to be dependable in the little things — telling you before he leaves the yard, asking permission to eat candy or chew gum or play with objects that do not belong to him. (Matt. 25:21)
That he might learn the Word of God and it might become a part of him. (Col. 3:16; Psalm 119:9-11)
Pray through your child’s life — his salvation, his teachers at school and church, his friends, his witness at school, his education, college, his moral purity, his vocation, his mate, his children, their salvation, etc.
