Prayer for our children…no matter what age!

God our Father, you see your children growing up in an unsteady and confusing world: Show them that your ways give more life than the ways of the world, and that following you is better than chasing after selfish goals. Help them to take failure, not as a measure of their worth, but as a chance for a new start. Give them strength to hold their faith in you, and to keep alive their joy in your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

One thought on “Prayer for our children…no matter what age!

  1. Lord, we bring our children and grandchildren to You right now. We bless them in Jesus’ great name. We call forth that You soften their hearts and fill their hearts with Your love through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us. We pray that You reveal the goodness of God to them and draw them to repentance. Bring to their remembrance all the good Word of God they have been taught from their birth even until now. Release laborers across their path that will move in power and kindness. Release demonstrations of Your amazing love to them for Your holy name’s sake. It is our hope and prayer that You will fill our children and grandchildren with all joy and peace in believing, so that they may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ name!
