A Prayer for Children and Parents…

“Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray and confess Your Word over my children/grandchildren and surround them with my faith – faith in Your Word, that You watch over it to perform it!  I confess and believe that my children/grandchildren are disciples of Christ taught of the Lord and obedient to Your will. Great is the peace and undisturbed composure of my children/grandchildren……because You God contend with that which contends with my children/grandchildren and You give them safety and ease them..

“Father, You will perfect that which concerns me. I commit and cast the care of my children/grandchildren once and for all over on You, Father. They are in Your hands, and I am positively persuaded taht You are able to guard and keep that which I have committed to You. You are MORE than enough!

“I confess that my children/grandchildren obey their parents in the Lord as His representatives for this is just and right. My children/grandchildren honor, esteem, and value as precious their parents; for this is the first commandment with a promise; that all may be well with my children/grandchildren and that they may live long on earth. I believe and confess that my children/grandchildren choose life and love You Lord, obey Your voice, and cling to You; for You are their life and the length of their days. Therefore, my children/grandchildren are the head and not the tail and shall be above only and not beneath and are blessed when they come in and when they go out.

“I believe and confess that You give Your angels charge over my children/grandchildren to accompany and defend and preserve them in all their ways. You, Lord, are their refuge and fortress. You are their glory and the lifter of their heads.

“As parents, we will not provoke, irritate or fret our children. We will not be hard on them or harass them, or cause them to become discouraged, sullen, morose and feel inferior and frustrated. We will not break or wound their spirit, but we will rear them tenderly in the training, discipline, counsel and admonition of the Lord. We will train them in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it.

“O Lord, my Lord, how excellent, majestic and glorious is Your name in all the earth! You have set Your glory on or above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and unweaned infants You have established strength because of Your foes, that You might silence the enemy and the avenger. I sing praise to Your name, O Most High.


My children/grandchildren increase in wisdom and favor with God and man.  In Jesus name – AMEN!
