PRAYING FOR OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN (2)

📖:Deuteronomy 6:6-9

Confession: Psalm 91
 

As believers, looking back through our own past errors, mistakes, and bad experiences in life, we do not want our children or grand children to make wrong choices in life. It is therefore our responsibility to ensure they don’t make wrong choices by praying for them without ceasing so they do not fall into sin, lust, and coveteousness. God demands we train them and expects us to obey Him (Deuteronomy 6:6).
 

As Christians, our joy is for all our family members to be saved through the salvation of Christ and strive to live a holy life. In Proverbs 22:6 which says “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it”. There are many great scriptures we can use as prayers over our children and grandchildren. Some parents wants to start praying for their children and grandchildren but don’t know how or when to start. 

As parents, if we are yet to start praying for our children, Psalm 91 is a great Psalm to start off with. It covers every aspect of one’s life. Other suggested scriptures as prayer points; FEAR OF THE LORD – Psalm 128:1-4, LOVE – 2 Corinthians 13, DIRECTION – Proverbs 3:5-6, PROTECTION – Psalm 91:1-2, PEACE- Philippians 4:6, PROVISION – Philippians 5:19, WISDOM -James 1:5, COMPASSION – Ephesians 4:32, JOY – Psalm 16:11, COURAGE – Joshua 1:9, STRENGTH – Philippians 4:13, SELF-ESTEEM Ephesians 2:10, FAITH – Luke 17:5-6, SELF CONTROL – 1 Thessalonians 5:6, HOPE- Romans 15:13, HUMILITY- Titus 3:2, RESPECT- 1 Peter 2:17, just to mention a few. Together with our families, we shall dwell in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty, (Psalm 91:1) and we shall be for signs and wonders (Isaiah 8:18). Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, our Saviour. Have a blessed day.

PRAYER 

🙏 Let the Blood of Jesus separate my children from the sins of their ancestors, in the name of Jesus.

🙏 Problems that entered into the lives of my children through my foundation, expire, in the name of Jesus.

🙏 Any blood covenant affecting the lives of my children, break by the Blood of Jesus.

🙏 You spirit of rebellion, release my children, die, in the name of Jesus.

🙏 Thank You Lord, for answered prayers.
