As I said in the introduction, this challenge is an opportunity to spend the next thirty days being intentional about praying for a child or children.
I hope you had time to decide and write down the name or names of the child/children you will be praying for the next 30 days. If not take the time and do that now. Also, I would encourage you to use a prayer book/journal and write out your prayer each day. This just really allows to really think and ponder on the words, and gives you something to look back at as God answers these prayers. Reuse the prayers and add new notes as you continue to pray for the children in your life.
No matter how you choose to use this prayer guide, the most important thing is to be intentional. Don’t just make it a habit or chore that you check off your to do list each day. Make time and take time to really pray for the child/children, and ask God to show you ways to bless them.
Each day I will post the topic and scripture, and write out my prayer for you to use as a guide, as you go to the Father in prayer. No matter whom God lays on your heart to pray for that is exactly who you should be praying for.
May Yehovah God bless us as we seek to bless Him and His children.
Day 12 – Pray that your children will be humble.
Your Word teaches us that we should not think of ourselves more highly than we ought, but to think of ourselves with sober judgment (Romans 12:3). I pray this for my children; help them to honor others above themselves even when its hard or circumstances seem unfair. Grow them and establish them so firmly in Your Word that they have no desire to seek praise others.
Create in my child a heart that is gentle and compliant to Your will, always ready to do what is good, to be kind to all, to love and promote peace, to be considerate, demonstrating humility toward all (Titus 3:1-2).
Use me to teach my children that a humble person walks securely and you vindicate all who live according to Your Word. Help me set an example to my children to be still and quiet , placing their hope and faith solidly on Your foundation. May they have no desire to build, defend our uphold a kingdom of their own. May they boast only of Your Kingdom.
In Yeshua’s name,
I hope this blog series is a blessing to you and the children in your life. If you would like to join our prayer group on Facebook here is the link.
