Say A Little Prayer

If you are a Christian parent, you realize the importance of prayer for our children. I love to find prayers filled with God's Word to pray over my children. As we begin a new week, I will share one that I found.

Pray that our children will:
Love God's Word " May my children grow to find God's Word more desireable than gold - than an abundance of pure gold and sweeter than honey." Psalms 19:10

Biblical Self-Esteem: Help my children to develop strong self-esteem, rooted in the realization that they are "His creation - created in Christ Jesus for good works." Ephesians 2:10

A Passion For God: Lord, please give my children a soul that craves You and a heart that clings passionately to You. Psalms 63:8

Self-Discipline: I pray that my children may develop self discipline and acquire a habit "for receiving wise instruction in righteousness, justice and integrity." Proverbs 1:3

A Good Work Ethic: Teach my children, Lord, to value work and to work hard at everything they do "as something done for the Lord and not for men". Colossians 3:23
