Today is day 1 of praying for our kids especially school age. Feel free to add the name of your child to the prayer. If you have more than one child, repeat the prayer for each child. We will pray scriptures as we claim God’s Word to them. You can also pray out loud to your child so they know you are praying for them.
1. Praying for God’s blessings and protection upon Isaiah ( use your child’s name)
” Dear Lord, I lift up Isaiah to you. May you bless him in everything that he does. Please keep him safe and protect him from all harm. May your face shine upon him so he can delight in you. May you be gracious to him oh Lord. May you turn your face toward him and give him abundant peace.” In your name father I pray! “Amen”
Prayer taken from Numbers 6:24-26
Day 2: Wisdom.
Dear father, May you help Caleb ( your child’s name) to grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with you, and with man. May he understand your word fully to apply it to his life daily. May Caleb fear you so he can be rich in the knowledge of your word and have increased wisdom.
Help him to be strong and ready to learn in the classroom, to grasp things easily. Grant him wisdom in making wise choices in friendships and day today decisions.
Thank you Lord for answering my prayers when I call upon your name. In Jesus’s name I pray. Amen!
Luke 2: 52
Day 3: Praying For God’s Favor.
My mom always prayed for God’s favor upon us. I see how God answered that prayer in my life especially as I journey through a new land.
” Father God, I lift up Abigail to you (Your child’s name), May she be filled with divine favor from you and may she find it with everyone around her. May she find favor with her teachers, and fellow students. And may she use it for your glory to share Christ with those you bring into her life. I request that as she finds your favor may you make her efforts successful! Thank you Lord for blessing the righteous and surrounding them with your favor. In Jesus’s name I pray! Amen!”
From Luke 2:52, Psalm 90:17, Psalm 5:12
Day 4: For the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
Dearest father God, I lift up Micah ( your child’s name) to you, may he experience your love so he can show it to others, may he be filled with the joy that comes from you, and may he always practice and develop patience with school work and other things that he will be learning, patience around his peers and his surroundings. Help him to offer kindness to others, always being good in ways that honor you. Grant him the ability to remain faithful to you and your word no matter what! May he be as gentle as a dove though wise as a snake. May he maintain self control, help him to always think before taking a move. I thank you Lord for blessing us with your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’s name I pray; Amen!
Day 5: Contentment
Dear father, I lift up Isaiah (your child’s name) to you as he continues to grow both physically and spiritually. May he always stay away from the love of money, help him to be content with whatever you give him. May he learn to live in every situation. Both in abundance and in scarcity. Keep him from making comparisons, but instead grant him a heart of thankfulness. May he always remember that you will never leave nor forsake him. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
Today is our final day. Thanks for joining us and hope u felt encouraged to pray for and with your kids.
Day 6: To Trust in the Lord always.
Oh Lord, I lift up Caleb to you. I pray that he can draw closer to you, may he always trust in you with all his heart and not lean on his own understanding. May he acknowledge you in all ways so that you can direct his path/ steps.
In Jesus’s name I pray. Amen!
