7 Uplifting Prayers for Children to Learn

1 John 4:4, Romans 12:21
Dear Father, I pray that you help me be the light in a world of darkness. Please help me understand and believe that while You are in me, I am greater than anything in and of the world. Help me be strong and turn away from the false pleasures the world has to offer. I pray that I will not be overcome by evil, but I will overcome evil with good. Father let Your goodness be evidence of true greatness, this I pray, Amen.

Ephesians 3:20, Jeremiah 33:3
Dear Lord, I pray that You help me as I struggle in my education. I struggle to believe that I can achieve the grades that have been predicted. But Father, I declare that I will do well, in Jesus’ Name. I place my trust in You, knowing that when I do, I can exceed my goals because You do more than I could ever ask or think. I pray that as I study, You will reveal the hidden things I did not know, enabling me to understand topics with ease. This is the prayer of my heart, Amen.

2 Samuel 22:7, John 10:10
Oh God, I pray against my thoughts that tell me that I am unimportant in this world. I pray when I feel unheard or unseen, I remember that You hear and see me. I pray against the enemy’s plans to destroy me with labels that people are too quick to use such as depression, anxiety and suicide. I know that the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Father You have come to give life more abundantly. I pray for peace within my heart, soul and mind, Amen.

Proverbs 22:29
Most righteous Father, I pray for my future. I pray that I do not limit myself to mediocrity and instead set out to achieve my wildest dreams. I pray that I exceed the works of my parents and bring more fruit to the family name. I declare Lord, that I will stand before kings, because of Your favor. Lord, help me to work hard so that I may experience success and excellence in the future. This is the prayer of my heart, Amen.

John 10:10, 1 John 3:2
Dear Lord, I pray that I experience things a child should and I ask that I do not grow up quicker than I need to. Father, I pray my innocence, in Jesus’ Name. I pray that I am able to enjoy being a child and live a carefree childhood. I ask for Your divine protection over my life and I pray against the enemy’s plans to steal and destroy my innocence. I am Your child and I ask that You Lord, help me to do the things required of You; this I pray, Amen.

Proverbs 22:6, 1 Corinthians 16:14
Heavenly Father, I pray that my parents/guardians correctly teaches and trains me so that when I am older, I can live a wise and happy life. Lord, I ask that Your peace remains in my parent’s/guardian’s heart so I can experience peace in my home. I pray that every parent/guardian acts lovingly towards their child. Let love be what each child experiences in their household. I pray that parents/guardians will demonstrate the love You have shown and that all they do will be done with love, Amen.

Exodus 20:12
Oh Lord, help me learn to honor and most importantly love my parent/guardian. I pray that I respect the sacrifices that my parent/guardian has made in order to make me happy, so that my days may be long upon the land which You have given. I pray that I do not intentionally burden my parent/guardian, instead help me make them proud each day. Let love be the foundation of our relationship, this we pray, Amen.
