Let him be a shining light of the love of Christ. Amen.
Prayer for a Love of the Truth
Lord God of all truth, in our world today, truth is so ambiguous. Your Word tells me that the day will come when many will turn away from the truth.

Prayer for Freedom from Love of Money
Most precious Lord, in our world today there is so much emphasis placed on wealth and possessions. As my baby boy grows up in the midst of this world’s insatiable appetite for money and things, I pray that you would keep him free from the love of money. Money is not evil, but the love of it is a sin. I pray that Your love will guide him away from materialism so that he will understand what is truly important in life. Amen.
Prayer for Freedom from Lust
Loving Father, men in this world today are continually bombarded with the temptation of lust. I fear this will only get worse as my baby boy gets older.

Please keep him away from temptation, with his eyes firmly planted on You for the strength to act as a good Christian man should. Amen.
Prayer for Spiritual Eyes
Gracious God, as I pray over my baby boy, I am reminded that we are living in a spiritual world as well as a physical one. You gave spiritual eyes to Elisha’s servant so he could see the vast spiritual army which You provided to protect Your children. There are times when we need to walk by faith, and times when we need a little insight into the spiritual arena. For this reason, I pray that You would give my baby boy the spiritual eyes he will need to navigate the seen and unseen in this world. Amen.
Prayer for His Faithfulness
Faithful Father, we are easily distracted and led astray by temptations that end up separating us from You. I ask, Lord, that You would not let my baby boy get distracted and become distanced from You. Please keep him safe. Help him remember and follow my teachings, and Your teachings. Chase after him when he strays, so that he will never be unfaithful to You. Amen.
Prayer for His Holiness
Blessed Lord, I know that You detest wickedness. I am asking You, Lord, to keep my baby boy from entering onto the path of wickedness. Though he is small now, Lord, one day he will grow up and have to walk on his own in this world. I entrust him to You and ask that You lead him away from sin and immorality. Please place a hunger within him to be pleasing in Your sight. Amen.
Prayer for His Reverence
Gracious Savior, Your Word tells me that the fear of the Lord is the necessary foundation for obtaining knowledge. I pray, Lord, that You please help my baby boy have a healthy reverence for You, not just to obtain knowledge but to be pleasing in Your sight. I ask that You lead him to have a reverence that results in him experiencing the amazing depths of knowledge and deep understanding of who You are. Amen.
Prayer for a Thankful Attitude
Precious giving Lord, it is very easy for us to go through our lives and forget to thank You for all that You have done for us. I pray that my baby boy will grow up and always honor You with his possessions, thoughts and actions. I pray he will have a faithful heart to tithe to You and support Your amazing work in this world. Help him realize that all he has and all he is comes from You. Amen.
