A Great Prayer for Your Children


We all need to pray for our children. Here are four simple prayers for you to try.

We have not ceased to pray for you (Colossians 1:9).

We need to pray for our children. For many years, my wife has prayed a prayer from Scripture for our three sons. Her prayers are based on Colossians 1:9–12.

Here are some ideas for you to try:

  • Pray that they will increase in the knowledge of God. Most parents’ greatest hope for their children is that they will be happy, but a fulfilled life comes from knowing God. Without God, there is a nagging emptiness. Lots of people know about God, but knowing Him personally is different. We all know a lot about our nation’s president, but only a few know him personally.
  • Pray that they live worthy lives. Pray that their lives have an impact for good and that they will be people of trustworthy character.
  • Pray that they’re strengthened in God’s power. The world and evil influences will seek to pull our children down. They need God’s power to be strong, to resist temptation, and to do the right thing.
  • Thank God for each child. They are unique creations of God.

We all need to pray for our children. Why don’t you do it right now?
