Prayers for your Child

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.
