8 Prayers For My Son

Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God

Galatians 4:7

For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

Romans 8:14

Children are gifts from God. Like all gifts from Him, we are supposed to cherish, nurture and care for them. Sons are also children of God just like us, but we as parents are supposed to teach them the ways of God so that when they grow up they can take our place and continue to fulfill the purpose of God.

Sons are supposed to be raised to protect and care for their people just like daughters are supposed to preserve God’s generation. Mortal sons are people we give birth to through our blood, body, and spirit.

As Christians, sons are those who share the spirit God gave us. A son should allow himself to be led by the spirit of God and not be led astray by the snares and glamour of this physical world. We have a responsibility to raise our sons in the spirit, strengthening and admonishing them each day to seek the Lord God first in their lives.

Jacob loved all his sons and he taught them about the Lord. God blessed Jacob and the twelve tribes of Israel came from his sons. When you have a son it is an opportunity for you to inspire a different generation. Because of the love Jacob had for Joseph, he grew up to be a leader of an entire generation.

He saved his people through the revelations of God when it came time for him to have compassion on his brothers after what they did to him, he did just that.

The good traits that we instill in our children should be manifest in them even when we are no longer alive to witness them. That is what God expects from his children. We as Christians must raise our sons to be responsible members of society. They should respect their wives, care for and protect their children from harm.

Prayer for protection for my son

The love we have for our children is unconditional. Sometimes we set such high expectations for them, completely forgetting that they are only human too. They need us to believe in them and love them no matter what their flaws, imperfections, and faults may be.

We have to shelter them when they run into trouble. We have to encourage and make them feel happy even when the whole world turns its back on them. That is what God expects us to do because he does the same for us.

Hebrews 12:5-6 says and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, Nor faint when you are reproved by Him; For those whom the Lord loves He disciplines, And He scourges every son whom He receives.
