Leading with Wisdom Prayer
Lord, be with our children as they take every step towards the future. Keep them sure-footed and concrete in their beliefs. Please don’t let anything or anyone stand in between You and their hearts.

Be with them night and day. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen.

Give them a strong Christian stance in this world and make them the kind of witness that everyone longs to hear. Give them that powerful ability, Lord. I ask these blessings in Your Son’s name. Amen.

Admiration and Love Prayer
Lord, please let my children be looked upon with admiration and love. I want the world to see Jesus living in the souls and hearts of each one of my babies as they grow. Shine inside of them so brightly, that the light comes out and shines around them for everyone to see. Let them preach Your word and share Your teachings everywhere they go. Provide them with many talents so that Your life is glorified through them. In Your name, I pray. Amen.

Soul on Fire Prayer
Wonderful God, I ask that You bless the future of each one of my children. Allow each one to celebrate with You, cry to You, and rejoice in You. Put a passion in their heart for Your word and set their soul on fire for You. Give them flames so strong they can never be put out. Make their efforts always be credited to the glory of You and keep them close to Your side. In Jesus’s name, I ask these things. Amen.

Hope and Security Prayer
God, bless each of our children in Your own perfect way. Allow each one of their separate personalities to develop to its potential and be there as a shining beacon to always keep them on the right track. Bless their future with hope and security, but make sure they know those things always come from You. Keep their heads filled with thoughts of goodness and grace and show them they are never alone. In Your name, I pray. Amen.

Comfort and Contentment Prayer
Precious Lord, be with our children as they soar towards their future selves. Keep them steady in Your teachings, never let them be led away from You, and give them comfort and contentment in their daily lives. Bless them with safety, wisdom, and success. Show them when to talk and when to listen, encourage them to pick their friends wisely, and overwhelm them with Your love. These things I ask for our children, in Your name. Amen.

Never-Ending Love Prayer
Sweet Father, hold my children tightly every second of every day. Wrap them in Your never-ending love and keep them safely walking down the Christian path. I pray their futures are filled with honesty, love, fulfillment, and blessings. Help them to teach Your word, be a witness when they can, participate in church, and use their talents to please You. Lord, keep them grounded so they can become a knowledgeable and upright Christian adult. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen.

Courage and Wisdom Prayer
Lord in Heaven, place your hands on the hearts of my children and keep them healthy, safe, and faithful. As they become older, allow them to prosper and not suffer. Give them the courage to fight fear and arm them with wisdom so negative circumstances will have no power over their lives. Bless their actions, keep them living for You, and remind them daily that our job on Earth is to work towards our life in heaven. Keep their eternal future a focus point in their thoughts. In Your Son’s name, I pray. Amen.

Following Your Guidance Prayer
Jesus Christ, take each one of my children in Your loving arms and hold them tightly. Surround them with Your gentle spirit and let them know how much You care.

Protect their future and fill it with happiness. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen.

Sparkle with Grace Prayer
God, protect the footsteps of each of my children. Allow them to be safe no matter where they are, guide them to make good choices, and keep conflict out of their future. Clothe them with Your Holy Spirit and let them sparkle with grace. Take them to new places, show them Your beautiful world, and bless them generously. Allow them to lavish in Your presence and always stand for You. In Your name, I pray. Amen.

Unshakable Faith Prayer
Lord, I ask that you protect my children from harm, bless their futures with the light of Your glory, and provide them with unshakable faith.
