7 Good Prayers for Stepchildren

Ephesians 6:4
Dear Lord, joining a new family can be a difficult thing, but I pray that You watch over this family as we do so. I pray that my stepparents do not provoke me to anger, but I pray that they bring me up in the discipline and instruction of You. I pray that my family is God-centered because everything good comes from You. I pray for peace during this transition, Amen.

Matthew 15:4
Righteous God, thank You for blessing me with a mother and father. I am grateful for my stepparents and I pray that I honor them in all that I do. I pray that my love and respect for them never dies because they first loved me. I give You thanks and praise for placing them in my life and I pray that You bless them and my household, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Ephesians 6:1
Holy God, I pray that You help me be more like You when I talk with my parents. I pray that You always give me the wisdom to obey them because they know what is best for me. I pray that I appreciate their love and do not take it for granted just because they aren’t my biological parents. It is right to respect them because You placed them in my life, Amen.

Proverbs 13:24
Dear Lord, Your Word says that whoever spares the rod hates his child. Help us understand that when we correct our stepchild / step children, it is done out of love. Your Word also says that a loving parent works hard to discipline and train their child. I thank You for giving us our step children/child so that we can push them to be better. I pray that they will accept our correction and understand that it is because we love them, Amen.

Exodus 20:12 & Proverbs 12:1
Eternal Savior, I pray that our stepchildren / child will honor us as their mother and father even though they are not our biological children. I pray that they will accept that we have chosen to guide and raise them because we love me. I also pray that they will accept our discipline because he who loves discipline loves knowledge and he who hates reproof is stupid. Father help us to be wise in Your eyes and direct our stepchild/step children in learning to love the teachings of us as parents, Amen.

Proverbs 10:1
Righteous God, the pain of not having biological parents was great so I thank You for giving me new parents. I pray that I love them and they love me as genuinely as those related by blood do. Please fill me with Your divine wisdom so that I can make my father glad and help me not bring grief to my mother, in Jesus Name. I pray that You guide me so that I can make them proud, Amen.

Matthew 5:14
Dear Father, I pray right now for every stepchild right now. I ask that as parents, we will influence them so that they will be in Your likeness. Lord, we pray that they will not be influenced by the negativity of this dark world, but we will demonstrate Your light because we are the light of the world. We pray for your divine comfort, guide and strength in their lives; this we pray, Amen.
