My daughter, my sister, and I were discussing praying for our
children, as mothers. It was so bittersweet when my children started
moving away from home, but being a grandma
and talking to my daughter mother-to-mother is wonderful. I am looking
forward more and more to my relationships with my adult children.
Back to praying for our children. I like praying the words of Scripture outloud when I pray:
1) Angels, who render service for those who will inherit salvation, obey the voice of God’s word.
2) God’s word is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword …
3) The word of God is the sword of the Spirit, our offensive weapon in our battle against principalities and powers.
4) Faith — our shield, which extinguishes all the fiery darts of the enemy against us — comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
I posted my favorite prayer for my children, from Psalm 23. Another of my favorite prayers for my children, and now Zane, is:
“He will tend His flock like a shepherd;
He will gather the lambs in His arms;
He will carry them in His bosom,
And gently lead those that are with young.”
you have favorite scriptures you pray regularly for your children?
Please share them in the comments; it would be a wonderful resource for
mothers to draw on for prayer inspiration!
