31 Scriptures To Pray For Your Children

31 Scriptures To Pray For Your Children

31 Scriptures To Pray For Your Children is a compilation of my favorite Scriptures I prayed over the years for my children.

Looking back our lives weren’t easy but by the grace of God, it was worth it.

Facing so many obstacles on our path, I know we wouldn’t make it so far without God.

I don’t know what your story is, mom or dad, reading this. But I do know God is faithful to His children.

Please don’t give up on your child. Your prayers can make a difference in not only the lives of your own children but also the other children you are praying for.

No prayer will ever be in vain even if you have to wait for the results to manifest and if you don’t fight for your child on your knees chances are nobody else will.

I know my youngest daughter wouldn’t be alive today if she wasn’t covered in prayer, not only my prayers but so many people prayed for her.

While caught up in heroin addiction she encountered a few life-threatening situations and part of her testimony today is that she knows it’s only God’s divine intervention that saved her life.

May the Holy Spirit minister to you while reading through these Scriptures and inspire you to pour your heart out like water before the Lord on behalf of your child/children. (Lamentations 2:19)
