Prayer For Boys
Dear God,You know our hearts, you hear our prayers, and care about all that concerns us. You understand the burden we carry and how we want, more than anything, to see our loved ones come to you. Help us to remember that you love them more than we ever could. And you desire to extend your great love and forgiveness, your mercy and hope. Thank you that nothing is too difficult for you. Thank you that your power is unlimited and you came to set the captives free. Thank you that you wait, arms open, for the prodigal to return, that you look for his arrival to lavishly celebrate that he's come home. We praise you for you are Redeemer and Rescuer, Savior and Lord. We know and believe that there's no pit so deep that your love can't reach us still. We understand that your mercies are new every morning, and your faithfulness is great.
Lord, we ask that you would halt the plans of the enemy over these we love as we bring them before you right now. We pray that his schemes be demolished and that your plans for good, for a future and hope, would prevail. Would you open blind eyes that they might see your Truth. Would you rescue those walking in darkness and heal the deep wounds of those who've been hurt.
We pray for the miraculous intervention of your Spirit to draw them to yourself, to work strong on behalf of our loved ones who are lost and wandering. For you came with good news, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for captives and release for the prisoners. Though we deserved penalty for our wrong, you stood in our place and took the blows on our behalf. You choose to die, so that we can live. Forever and free.
Lord, forgive our unbelief. Forgive the times we've doubted that you could ever change a distant heart. Forgive our hard-heartedness, our weariness, or forgetfulness to pray continually. Thank you that you never give up on us. Remind us of how you've changed our own hearts. How your miracle of life and hope has sprung up deep within our souls. We love you Lord, we need you, and we thank you that you hear our prayers and are at work even now. Powerfully. Faithfully. Miraculously. Thank you for the gift of our Savior, God with us. Thank you for your goodness and love. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Lord, Your Word says "If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him" (James 1:5). Lord, I need that kind of wisdom to know when to speak to my son and when to be silent. "Do not let any unwholesome talk, lecturing, judging, or accusing come of my mouth, but only what is helpful for building my son up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen (Eph. 4:29). Let me also be "quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for my anger doesn't bring about the righteous life that God desires" (James 1:19).
Lord, I pray that my son will develop an eternal perspective and purpose, not an earthly one. Help him to see lifeand every challengethrough Your eyes, eager and unafraid to share with others the good news of Jesus wherever he goes. I pray that they will set his minds on things above, not just what's going on here, and that he will be rooted and grounded in Your love. I pray that he will come to understand the extent of Your own love for himthat it surpasses all the head knowledge they will acquire in school. I pray he will be filled up with You from morning 'til night.
Holy Father, as boys continue to grow physically, they also grow emotionally. It is therefore in this growing period that I pray they will come to know You by Name and the love that You give. I pray that You will free every teenage boy from habitual and destructive behaviors in school and home. We pray for positive role models to stand alongside them and that You Lord, will transform their lives into what You want them to be, Amen.
Dear Lord, Your Word says, my son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. We pray against the spirit of giving in to enticing spirits that only leads our growing boys into prison. Help them to not enter the path of the wicked and to not walk in the way of evil. But Lord, I pray they shall find rest in Your shadow, Oh Lord, we Pray, Amen.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the education system, where teachers are doing their best to teach boys as they transition through each school grade. Lord as children grow and peer pressure increases, I ask that You will guard their minds and help them to recognize truth. Help them not to be influenced by others but they will trust You as their refuge and strength, this we pray Amen.
Dear Lord, You said, train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it. As boys continue to grow, I pray that parents will continue to train them in the fear of the Lord. Lord, please help fathers to not provoke their sons to anger, but to bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Father hear this prayer we ask, Amen.
Heavenly Father, I pray for growing boys within this city and land. I pray that their youth shall not be despised, but like Timothy, every boy will be an example to believers in word, conduct, love, spirit, faith and purity. I pray that they will be an example in their schools, home and society as a whole. I pray for Your spiritual, physical and emotional projection and that You will keep them from evil, Amen
