Prayer For A Disrespectful Child

?Lord, thank you for the life of my child [Name]. Your word in Proverbs 20:11 says people know a child by his deeds and others know mine for rude behavior. This is causing me shame and disgrace. Show me the cause of his/her rude behavior.

Help [Name] with what they are struggling with and heal their heart. Let his/her heart overflow with good things so that good will come out of his/her mouth. Season my child's speech with grace to only speak kind words to others.

Give me the patience I need as I help him/her become a better child. Grant me an insight into the cause of bad behavior in this child so I will address the right problem. Thank you for your help.

In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Lord, you are the giver of children. I thank you for the child you gave me and the opportunity to become a parent. Today I bring this child [Name] to you and ask for help with their rebellious behavior.

I did not always teach him/her the godly way to behave and I repent. Show me how to deal with their rebellion which you consider as the sin of witchcraft (1 Samuel 15:23).

Give my child an obedient heart and convict them of wrongdoing. Help me understand the root cause of their rebellion so I will know how to pray and deal with it.

Help my child deal with the cause of their anger and frustration without taking it out on other family members and friends.

In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.


Please help me to be the parent that you designed me to be.

Help me to discipline and raise my child in a way that glorifies you.

I pray that you would wash over him/her with your peace, that you would fill their heart and mind with joy and the desire to be a child that is behaved and respectful.

And Lord, please give me patience and wisdom.

For I pray this in your heavenly name - Amen.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the blessing of parenthood and the joy that comes with having children. We are grateful for growth and learning that comes with Godly discipline and teachings.

Forgive us, Lord, when we are frazzled and feel like giving up from bad behavior in our children. Sometimes we reach the end of our ropes and our anger, and lack of patience rears their ugly heads in sinful ways. Father, when satan tries to rob our relationship with our children through unruly behavior or rebellion, equip us to step in immediately with a firm yet loving hand. Enable and guide us to discipline our children according to your teachings.

I pray that you would help us to look past the behavior and see the reason or cause for it. Reveal to us if there is something that we can improve or do better as their parent.

We trust in you Father to bring about a change in our child and that you would give them a tender and calm spirit. Help them to thrive despite their conduct. Please plant self-control within them that can overcome the temptation to act out.

Please place Godly influences in their lives and allow them to be a Godly influence to those around them as well.

Please bathe our child's heart, body, and mind in your soothing peace. Help them to react and act in a way that is accepting and non-irritating to others around. Forgive them when they do act up and help them to have the strength to resist the urge or desire to disobey or misbehave.

Forgive me, Father, when I give in to the bad behavior to keep things from escalating. I know this only teaches my child that the behavior is ok. Give me the power to handle the situation at the very moment it happens.

I pray for your hand of protection upon my child's heart and mind and that you will bring us closer together as a family. May we grow in our walk with you and glorify you in all that we do.

I pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.

Dear Saints,

My adult son, who is 21 is disobedient, rude and disrespectful to me and other adults. I am a single mother and he is my only child. I have no support from my family. Lately, I have open up and have told people that my adult son is disrespectful to his Mother. I was embarrassed to tell anyone. Never in my wildest dream would I think my son would turn out this way. Did I love him too much and give him too many things? I love my son unconditionally but I can't put up with his disrespect. He says he hates me. I want him to move out and get his own place. He tells me if he moves out. He will move far away from me and I will never see him again. He curses at me. He wants to get in my face. He tried to intimidate, manipulate and make me feel guilty. My son blames me for getting breast cancer (I had it 2 times) and for his father's passing. He wants to smoke weed and have sex in his room with his girlfriend. What he really wants to do his play videos games and play his rock music loud all day. I have talked to my pastor and have prayed and prayed but things seem to be getting worse. I will have to seek legal action to get him to move. I am tired and tired of fighting and I shouldn't have to fight with my son. I only want to best for my son. He acts like he is scared to be on his own. I work part-time and we are barely making it. I am trying to keep a roof over our heads. I want him to contribute to our house hold bills and he flip out. My son is very selfish and spoiled. I am trying to teach him how to pay a bill and be responsible. I want him to grow up and be a man. My older sister keeps cuddling him and won't let him grow up. My sister is filing his head with negative talk about me and my son do not tell his Aunt not too bad about his Mom nor does he defend or protects me. My sister, Tina, has never been a sister or a friend to me. For some reason, she hates me. I have reach out and tried to repair our relationship. I've tried to be a sister but she still has hatred towards me. My sister, my niece and my son has betrayed me. I know for fact that my sister would not condone her daughters being disrespectful, rude and disobedient to her. I am so hurt, depressed and feel so alone. I told my son his Aunt is using him to get back at me but he will not listen to me. He believes everything she tells him. My sister has two daughters one is on drugs and the other barely speaks to her but she wants to interfered in my life. She only doing it to hurt me. Recently, I stopped speaking to me sister because she encourages my son to be disrespectful to me. She has betrayed and hurt me so many time over the years. Please pray my son will move out soon. He's stressing me out. We barely speak to each other and I can't stand to be around him. I locked my bedroom door at night afraid he might get a knife. He was saved. He said he's a rocker and listen to rock music. He thinks he can be a rock star. Please pray for us.

Please pray for my son he's 18yrs old and doesn't wanna do anything with his selfhe doesn't go to school all he wants to do is run the street and hangout with friends and drink alcohol and smoke. I have tried to talk to him but he's very disrespectful towards anything I say.

Thinks I treat him like a child which he still is and that's how he acts. He says he doesn't like me because I always got something to say Please pray for him to find guidance and respect towards me and his dad

In gods name.
