One thing about being a parent is constantly being worried about your children. Children come into this world innocent and helpless. It is up to the parents and caregivers to teach them what is right and to defend and protect them.
As a parent, you teach your child, you take care of their needs, you care for them, you protect them, you train them up, you encourage them, you help them and above all, you love them. You do all these things and yet still you can’t help but worry about them.
This is because you know that certain things are out of your control. As much as you try and as hard as you try, you can’t control everything. And so when your child is out of your sight, you can’t help but worry about them.
You worry about the decisions they make, if they can make the right ones that will help them. You worry about the people they encounter, if they are good people or they are people that want to harm your children, you worry about their life and their health, you worry about everything.
But as a Christian parent, instead of spending your days worrying about all the above, you should rather go to the Lord in prayer and pray for your child. He’s God. He’s the one in total control of everything and the amazing part is he’s everywhere.
So when you can’t be around to protect your children and help them make the right choices, he’s ever present and will always be there for them. So don’t worry about your children, instead, go to the Lord in prayer and prayer for your children.
Aside from praying for your children, it is also very important to teach your child how to pray. You can teach them a short prayer or teach them how to communicate with God, this will help the child bring a strong relationship with God. It will also give the child a sense of confidence and security when you are not with them because they know they are not alone.
Below are some prayer points for children that you can pray over your child.
10 Prayer points for children
Pray that God gives your children wisdom. Before anyone does anything, they first have to decide what to do and just one decision can change your life for good. That is why it is important to pray that God gives your children wisdom and helps them to make the right decisions.
Good health and strength
You also have to pray for your child’s health. No one can really do anything if they are sick and unhealthy. So pray that God gives them the strength to do everything that they should.
Courage and confidence
Ask God to give your child courage and confidence to be able to go through life. Life can be scary and especially for children, this can cause fear and panic. So pray that God helps your child to be brave no matter what comes their way.
Worrying is not something for just adults too. Children worry too. Pray that God gives your child peace and give their mind rest.
Pray that God will be your child’s refuge and protector. He’s the only one who can always be with your child. So pray that he protects your children wherever they go.
You are going to teach your children a lot of things but your children will learn a lot more from their school and their surrounding. Pray that God gives your child wisdom and knowledge, so they can learn.
Pray that they will be exposed to teachers, friends and neighbors who will teach them what to right. Pray that they will be able to understand what they learn in school and they will be able to apply what they learnt in their lives.
Nobody knows what the future holds but God does. The bible says in Jeremiah 29:11 that “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
God have plans for your child’s future, so pray that God’s plans for your child’s future manifests. Pray that their future is prosperous and God’s will for the prevails in their life.
You can teach your child all the right things in life and you can train them up well, but it can only take one bad advice from a friend to change your child’s life. Children are very impressionable, so it is very important that you pray that your child makes the right friends who will draw them closer to God.
Pray that your child will be able to discern between what is right and what is wrong. Pray that your child will only be concerned about pleasing God with their actions and not pleasing their friends.
Pray that your child knows they are loved and that they will also be able to give out love to others. Pray for their heart. Pray that they are kind and compassionate. Pray that they are filled with love.
Joy and happiness
Pray that God fills their heart with joy and happiness. It is so common to see children who are sad and depressed for various reasons. It doesn’t mean you are doing something wrong as a parent. It is just your child expressing how they fill deep within.
SO pray that God fills your child with joy and happiness. So that they can have a positive outlook on life.
