Are you looking for prayers to pray over your child? As a mother, the most heartbreaking thought is spending all eternity without your children. Praying for your child is not only important but a privilege. One day the trump will sound, and in the twinkling of an eye, all those in Christ will be seated next to him in Glory.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”Proverbs 22:6
Praying for Your Child
Your salvation is for you and you alone; your children are given minds of their own and free will. While they are under your roof, it’s moderately easy, in most cases, to help them walk the right path and make wise choices.
But the day will come when they step out on their own, and you must trust with all certainty that the words of the Lord will not return empty — “so is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11
What Does The Bible Say About Praying For My Child
“Some parents earnestly pray and their children become gifted leaders or scholars or musicians or athletes. Others earnestly pray and their children develop a serious disability or disease or wander through a prodigal wilderness or just struggle more than others socially or academically or athletically. And the truth is, God is answering all these parents’ prayers, but for very different purposes.
That’s why Scriptures like John 9:1–3 are in the Bible. We must not too quickly assess God’s purposes because they can be the opposite of our perceptions. God measures success differently than we do, which is why he often answers our prayers in ways we don’t expect.
So, pray for your children. Jesus promises us that if we ask, seek, and knock, the Father will give us good in return (Luke 11:9–13), even if the good isn’t apparent for forty years. And because Jesus regularly asked those who came to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” (Mark 10:51), we know that he wants us to be specific with our requests.” Desiring God
