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 28 – Pray that your children would know God’s peace and safety.
Isaiah 41:10; Philippians 4:6-7; Isaiah 54:13
There is nothing I want more than to know that my kids are safe and at peace. It is the best feeling when they all come home and are under one roof. I long for the day when our Messiah returns and brings peace and security to us all.
Today, I not only pray for my children’s physical safety, but also their mental wellbeing.
The world is so dangerous and it can become easy to be afraid. But I will not fear. Instead, I ask you to protect my children wherever they go. Keep them safe from evil, keep them safe from stupid decisions, keep them from harm that is unintentional. Keep them safe in travel and at home.
Most of all Father, give them peace of mind. It seems so many are becoming mentally unwell. So, today, I pray that my children will apply Your Word to their lives and You will bless their heart, body, and mind.
May my children always,
“Rejoice in Yehovah always. I will say it again: Let them Rejoice! Let their gentleness be evident to all. Remind them that You are near. May they not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present their requests to You. And may Your peace, which transcends all understanding, will guard their hearts and their minds in Messiah Yeshua.
Fill their hearts and mind with whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy. And fill them with peace..
