  For your child?  Put your request in the comments and responses of prayer as well, for your fellow 'mom' friend. 
I want to encourage you to also check back on the last posts for encouragement with promises from God's Word through fellow mothers who are hungry for God in this area in their lives.

Pray This Promise & Share Your Heart

Isaiah 59:21 "As for Me, this is My covenant or league with them, says the Lord: My Spirit, Who is upon you [and Who writes the law of God inwardly on the heart], and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouths of your [true, spiritual] children, or out of the mouths of your children's children, says the Lord, from henceforth and forever." [Ampl.] 

All the years we have implanted God's Word into our children...God says IT WILL NOT DEPART!

Isahiah 59:12 "...thou shalt raise up the foundations of many called, ...the restorer of paths to dwell in."

Our generations will be lifted up and built up for God...His Kingdom. By His Word living in and flowing out of their lives. 
"Jesus, we stand on these promises for our children, that they will not only know Your Word, but love your word, live by Your Word and Speak Your Word and be a Path for many to come to know You as their loving Savior."

What Are Your Top Priorities As You Pray -tell us!

  Though there is some commonality as a Christian when we pray for our kids; as God leads us...there are times He may give us a unique conception on areas our children need prayer for. For example; for years I have prayed for my son to become a 'Man of Valour' like Joshua! 
  Will you share with us? You don't have to get personal...but generally what God has led you to pray.
  I like what this site listed as their top three priorities as mothers come together to pray.
Three Priorities of Prayer...
  1. "The salvation of our children (Isaiah 49:25;
    Psalm 144:12; Isaiah 43:5-6).
  2. That they take ownership of the faith at an accountable age (I John 2:25-28; James 1:25).
  3. That they enter into the ministry of the Lord's harvest (Matthew 9:38)."
I pray; 1- For my children's protection-physically, emotionally, financially, most important-Spiritually.
          2- For them to Fall in Love with Jesus; hungry for His Presence & His Word.
          3- That they all be prayers warriors, scholars of the Word, Soul Winners...not pew warmers but Church Fillers...(increasing God's Kingdom)
          4- Then I pray for their schooling, health issues, talents to increase and then their soul mates. (plus more as the Lord leads day by day).
YOUR TURN...tell us all: share and inspire!

FROM BETH ROBERTS (mother of 6)
1-I pray the the Lord guides my children so that they grow mature in Him. 
2-I pray that they will be built solidly on the foundation of Jesus, and grow in His grace with a conscious sense of His presence. 
3- May they continue to be built up with wisdom, favor, truth, love, life, faith, strength, and thankfulness (Luke 2:52: Eph. 4:15: Col. 2:6-7).
4- I ask the Lord to bless my children with the joy that comes from knowing Him and walking with Him. (Phil.4:4;Neh. 8:10)
 5-I pray for protection for my children by the covering blood of Jesus. I pray that they will know the power of the blood to defeat all the works of the evil one. By that power, bind the enemy from interfering with your perfect will in their lives. (John 17:15; 1John 4:4).
There are so many more, but I try to specifically pray these when I pray for them.  
God Bless. ~Beth~

PROMISE SCRIPTURES... concerning your children

 THIS IS ...
  For our children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and on....standing in the Gap...interceding for them all-that my friend; is our APPOINTMENT from God as mothers!
  My heart is being filled with the Spirit of God stirring me to PRAY like I have never prayed before. I am being drawn by God to cry out for my children; for their hearts to be His ALL the days of their lives. 
 Through the years I have seen several children who have been raised in godly homes...move on and then out of a personal walk with God and into a life of depravity and despair. In addition, mom's who feel as if they have failed as Shepherds of their little flock.
 On my face book page I messaged some friends who I know have a solid walk with the Lord. I asked them to share with me the promises God has given to them (from His Word) for their children. Allow me to share with you some of their responses. 
I do ask that you add on your prayers, your promises. 
Do you have a prayer requests....we will agree together and lift you up. 
Bear with me, I am not a computer geek---we all will do what we can to spread the word to one another to pray. 
Thank you...and Lord bless!   Daneille Snowden

  • Paula Foster Young I have to pray without ceasing, for my children anyway! Lol! I do pray, and have learned to step back and let God be God in their own lives !
    I have to trust that the Holy Spirit will truly be their guidance with encouragement from their God given parents! Destiny has been entrusted to the Holy Spirit, as she ventures out to New horizons and destinations beyond our presence. It is much prayer on my part that she will be led to make wise and Godly choices!

    • Kelly Zumbahlen  Jeremiah 29:11 God has plans for my children. Plans to prosper them and give them a future. Plans to give them hope and not harm. I know this is not word for word, but you get the idea. :) Trusting God in all situations of life is what He wants us to do. As my children draw closer and closer to that flying from the nest, I pray that they find that personal relationship with God that will be intimate and real! My children are 13,12,11 (almost), and 9 (almost). I do not pray over my kiddos at bedtime any more, but pray for them throughout the day and anytime. I pray over them in my prayer times and when they are in need. I pray for them when they are hurting and let them hear me. God is so good!

        • My children are all grown and out of the house. I pray many scriptures over them but the one I seem to use frequently is from the Lord's prayer---Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven. I constantly ask that God's will be done in their lives and His kingdom principles rule over them.

          • My kids are all grown. I know (I hope) I raised them as best I could. I pray for all 4 of them. Three of them I believe are either away from the Lord or walking away from Him. I pray for them seems like all day, everyday.

            • Ginger Payne Sharp Cool idea Daneille! The scripture I have prayed over my children since they were very young is Isaiah 54:13 " And your sons will be taught by the Lord and great will be your children's peace." God gave me this scripture when my children were small and when I, as a mom felt insecure about the huge responsibility of raising children who would grow to serve God. As parents. it is so important to teach our kids about God. It is even more important to teach them to recognize that God is the ultimate teacher, and that if they will learn to be taught by him, there will be no end to their peace. This is also a good scripture to claim over them as they grow and our direct influence over them diminishes. We can pray and thank God that he is teaching them even at times when we may not see obvious evidence of this.

              • Shelley Noonan Thanks Daneille! The website for moms of tweenage daughters is called B'twixt and B'tween you can find it at We have online classes for moms and daughters going through Beautiful Girlhood starting in September!
                The best book I have found for my adult children, was given to me by my future daughter in law for mothers day. It is The Power of A Praying Parent by Stormie OMartian. The one I am going through right now is Praying for Your Adult Children. Plum full of scripture and godly wisdom. Praying the scripture for your children is powerful and effective...just like God's word.

                  Ann Blue Haney I plead the blood over my children daily and I believe as in Bible times it protects my children from danger. Often times I have put scriptures under their mattresses for areas I knew they were challenged in, I have anointed the doorways to their rooms at night and each and every night I give them a kiss goodnight and pray as a group. I do this know matter what their age, when my 23 year old stays the weekend, as he does.
                  • I give him a kiss goodnight and pray over him as well. When he has a life challenge he always calls mom for prayer. A laid foundation will never fall apart.
                  • God has given me direction for all my children, but probably the most important thing God has ever told me (I now understand) is this--"the prayers you prayed for me to help your child love me and accomplish my goal for his life can only be reached when I tell you it is my turn to take over the training. I love him more than you do and can lead him better than you can. You have accomplished the purpose I called you to now let me take over ". I now understand the importance of this word God gave me, even though at the time I did not think my child was ready. I have seen him grow closer to me and to God and God's will for his life. He understands now more than ever the importance of seeking God. I thank God for helping me let go and let him be in control.

                    • Ulonda Allen  As a mother of 10 children, my prayers vary in so many different ways an I believe all of Gods promises for my children, but the one most important to me is a WORD that gave me, in His word, while earnestly seeking for direction in my life is Isaiah 54:13 "and all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children". No matter where my children are in their walk with the Lord, I stand on God's Word and know that it will NOT return void but will accomplish what He says it will. My children and my husband are the very reason I exist, outside of God. I will always stand in the gap for them!!

                      • Fannie Kaveny  The one scripture I use is Jeremiah 31 16-17
                        (mom of 2 biological & 2 adopted) scripture: Jeremiah 31 16-17 "Thus saith the LORD; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.

                        • Vicky McIntosh Stankus I have the book "The Power of a Praying Parent" by Stormie Omartian. I have read through it in the past, but it has sort of gone by the wayside. This conversation is motivating me to get back into it again. I do pray for my children but, lately, its only been popcorn prayers about their safety and about their walk with the Lord. These are good, but I would like to do more. I see it as vital, due to some circumstances that have arrised in the last few weeks. A blog on this topic is a great idea.

                          Sherry Kellinky  
                          I just wanted to share this scripture that someone prayed over me several years ago." For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants." Isaiah 44:3. I believe this for my children and the future generations to come. I would love for you to share this scripture. I pray this will be a encouragement to many others as well. Sherry.
