How to Pray for Your Children

The Word for Today
Written by Bob and Debby Gass

'...I will pour out My...blessing on your children...' Isaiah 44:3 NLT

You must pray, claiming God's promises over your children. Are such prayers effective? Yes. God says, '...I am ready to perform My word' (Jeremiah 1:12 NKJV). We serve a promise-making, promise-keeping God! 'So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it' (Isaiah 55:11 NKJV).

So pray for your children each day and stand on these promises: '...I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, and My blessing on your offspring' (Isaiah 44:3 NKJV). '"And this is my covenant with them," says the Lord. "My Spirit will not leave them, and neither will these words I have given you. They will be on your lips and on the lips of your children and your children's children forever. I, the Lord, have spoken''' (Isaiah 59:21 NLT)! 'Now this is what the Lord says: "Do not weep any longer, for I will reward you," says the Lord. "Your children will come back to you from the distant land of the enemy. There is hope for your future," says the Lord. "Your children will come again to their own land"' (Jeremiah 31:16-17 NLT). '...the posterity of the righteous will be delivered' (Proverbs 11:21 NKJV). '...Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who finds great delight in His commands. His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed' (Psalm 112:1-2 NIV). 'Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household' (Acts 16:31 NKJV).
