Have you heard of using bible scriptures to pray over your children? I wish we’d thought of this years ago! 

It’s important we pray with our children, but sometimes we don’t know how to do it or what to say. Sometimes we need a gentle nudge to try a new approach. Maybe you’re in this place right now?

If you’re searching for fresh ideas to use in prayer time with your children, try leading them in prayer by using Bible verses as your theme. Here are a few ideas to get you started!


5-life-changing-scriptures-to-pray-over-your-children

1. SALVATION

Acts 2:38-39: “Peter replied, ‘Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.’”

Pray for a heart of repentance as they grow and for the Holy Spirit to fill them and permeate their life. Salvation is a promise available to “you and your children” (verse 39). That’s exciting! Be excited about this promise as you pray!

2. LOVE FOR THE WORD

Psalm 1:2: “But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.”

Psalm 19:10: “May my children grow to find Your Word more precious than much pure gold and sweeter than honey from the comb.”

Pray for them to have a deep love for the Word of God. May they delight in it and meditate on it day and night. May they find it more precious than gold and sweeter than honey.

3. PROTECTION

2 Thessalonians 3:3: “But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.”

Pray for protection from evildoers, protection in both their body as well as in their mind. Pray for protection online and from images they may come across on social media, the web, in books, or in magazines.

4. DIRECTION

Psalm 37:23: “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way.”

Pray that their steps are ordered by the Lord, and that He directs and guides them throughout their life (long term) and during school, church, etc (short term). Pray that they have a heart for the things of God and seek His direction as they grow up and begin making more choices on their own.

5. THANKFULNESS

1 Samuel 1:27: “For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him.”

Pray a prayer of thankfulness for the children He has given you, and let your children hear you express gratitude for them.

Prayer can be a powerful muscle in your family’s spiritual life. Be sure to exercise it daily and you’ll grow stronger in Him!
