What blessings to seek for your children in your prayers
There can be several things to pray for your children. Hence do pray for them. Jesus promises us that if we ask, seek, and knock, the Father will give us good in return (Luke 11:9–13).
At some point, almost every parent reaches a stage where they can’t control everything, as things become rather dicey and tricky. Yet the parents can’t stop wishing a lifetime of happiness for their kids.
Therefore, rather than throwing up our hands in desperation, a wise mother or father starts praying and seeks the guidance and help of God. He is the one who created your child too, and loves him even more than you do.
So, here are a few helpful, specific things to pray for your children.
1. Prayer for faith
Parents are always there for their children, but at some point the child must embrace a relationship with God on his own.
A strong faith in God will help them to overcome their spirit of fear. The fear could be of anything and it inhibits the growth. Therefore, it is necessary to use faith to overcome fear.
2. Pray for health
Good health is something we all need. Every parent should pray for his child’s good mental health as well as good physical health.
If your child is healthy, do not take his or health for granted. Ask the parents of a child with health challenges about the value of good health.
3. Pray for safety and protection
God’s grace is ever essential – against the physical injuries in the playground , riding a bike, bullies or enemies bad intention. There is always a need for asking for God’s hand of protection against any physical, emotional and spiritual harm.
4. Pray for a good future
All parents have big dreams about the future of their little one. Parents want to see their children even going beyond their own achievements.
But the foundation for a great future has to be laid out now – even if your kid is playing with crayons now. Pray for their preparation for what lies ahead and God’s blessings for a great learning, direction, guidance to a successful career.
5. Pray for right kind of friendships
Good friends are an important part of your child’s moral, social and emotional development. Friends play a major role in shaping their views, character and in a way future also.
A bad company of the child could be absolutely damaging in all respects. Hence a prayer to God to watch over and provide best friends.
6. Pray for a good moral character
A child with a strong sense of right moral values will make better choices and earn blessings and praise of other members of the society. Good moral character will earn the child good karma and he will be spared of the consequences of wrong deeds.
In their prayers, parents have to pray that their children embrace a life of integrity, kindness, empathy and goodness, right from the childhood.
