Prayer For Adult Children
Heavenly Father, I pray for my adult child's life. I know that he/she has experienced many things in life and has learned how to cope without me. I pray that You continue to be the compass in my child's life. I pray that my child will continue to trust in You with all his/her heart and will not lean on his/her own understanding. I pray that You are acknowledged in all his/her ways. Please continue to direct my child's path. Amen.
O Lord, Mighty in Power, I thank You for the gift of my child. He/she has made me so proud, and has exceeded every expectation I ever had for parenthood. Thank You for blessing me with a child who has honored and obeyed me. My life has been so full because I have You, my Lord Jesus, and I have my beautiful child. Now that he/she is grown, please help him/her stay straight on the path I have taught him/her, keep him/her close to You, and protect him/her all the days of his/her life. Amen.
O Exalted One, I thank You for my child who is now stepping into adulthood. I thank You for guiding me as I tried my best to teach the correct morals to my child when they were younger. I pray to You that he/she will continue to live by those morals in adulthood and strive to live life as You did. Please keep Your hand upon my child. Even though I cannot physically be with my child at all times, I pray that You will continue to be with them in everything they do. Amen.
Father of Compassion and Mercy, I pray for my child and my child's future spouse. Your word says that a man shall leave his father and his mother and be joined with his wife, and they shall become one flesh. I pray that when my child chooses his/her spouse, that You will lead him/her to a Godly, love, patient spouse. Please bless my child's future marriage and help my child keep the vows of holy matrimony. Amen.
Precious Jesus, my Savior, Your word declares that when a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish. Thank You for giving me the gift of a child so many years ago. Being a mother is, aside from my love for You, the greatest joy I have ever known. Now that my child is ready to have children of his/her own, please let his/her family be blessed with happiness, health and prosperity. Show my child how to each his/her children how to love and cling to You. Amen.
All-Powerful Father, I thank You for who You are. I thank You for being with my child from the very beginning, through adolescence into adulthood. I thank You into adulthood. I pray that You continue to be the strength of my child's life. Your word declares that nothing will be impossible with You, and I pray that my child never lives without You by his/her side. I declare that Your light will continue to shine upon him/her for the rest of his/her days. Amen.
Awesome God, I pray that You will have Your divine way in my child's life. As an adult, there are struggles and difficulties he/she is facing, and will continue to face throughout this life. I pray that in his/her trials, Your grace will be sufficient for him/her, for Your power is made perfect in his/her weakness. I praise You all the more gladly because of his/her weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon him/her. I know that You hear the cries of You people, and that You will do good in Your own way, and on Your own time. Amen.
Blessed is the Child of Light
Who doth seek his heavenly Father
For he shall have eternal life.
He that dwelleth in the secret place
Of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow
of the Almighty.
For he shall give his Angels charge over thee
To keep thee in all thy ways.
Know ye that the Lord hath been
Our dwelling place
In all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth,
Or ever he had formed
The earth and the world
Even from everlasting to everlasting,
Hath there been love
Between the Heavenly Father
And his children.
And how shall this love be severed?
From the beginning
Until the ending of time
Doth the holy flame of love
Encircle the heads
Of the Heavenly Father
And the Children of Light:
How then shall this love be extinguished?
For not as a candle doth it burn,
Nor yet as a fire raging in the forest.
Lo, it burneth with the flame
Of Eternal Light,
And that flame cannot be consumed.
