Prayer For Children And Grandchildren

The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
For God is with the generation of the righteous.

Gracious God, I pray for wisdom and understanding for each of my grandchildren; that they would seek You in all things. I ask that You would look upon them and be with them from generation to generation.

The words of the Lord are pure words,
Like silver tried in a furnace of earth,
Purified seven times.
You shall keep them, O Lord,
You shall preserve them from this generation forever.

Sovereign God, please keep Your promises regarding Your children, and let the purity of Your Word preserve them. Speak into their lives and refine them as only You can. Thank You for preserving them always, and for keeping them in Your loving care.

The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed,
A refuge in times of trouble.
And those who know Your name will put their trust in You;
For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.

Father, please be a refuge for my grandchildren. Help them to run to You in times of trouble. Thank You for not forsaking them, but instead pursuing them with Your great love.

O Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth,
Who have set Your glory above the heavens!

Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have ordained strength,
Because of Your enemies,
That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.

Holy God, Thank You for my grandchildren. Thank You, that from their mouths, You have ordained praise. Please help them to recognize Your excellence in all the earth!

Gracious God, I ask you to be a shield for these precious grandchildren, and sustain them throughout their entire lives. Be the One they cry out to, and hear them when they call.

Heavenly Father, please help these little ones to find delight in You and Your word. I pray that they will be prosperous by abiding in You. Guard them against the paths of sinners and plant them beside rivers of Living Water.

Saint Ann, you know my concerns as a parent and/or grandparent. So many dangers threaten young people today. Will those children I love get a good education? Will they find fulfilling jobs? Will they follow the ways of your Grandson?

Because I am worried about the future of my children and/or grandchildren, I entrust them to you, Saint Ann. Take good care of them. Keep them healthy and always on the right path, faithful to God's commandments and love. If they have strayed from His teachings and Church, please help them to return.

Do for them what you did so well for your daughter, Mary. Teach them how to find true happiness in loving the Lord and their neighbor.

My hope and prayer is based on the goodness of God. I trust in Him to protect my children and/or grandchildren whom I love more than myself. Please intercede for them and for all the children of the world.


Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of my precious children and what a privilege it is to see my grandchildren growing up and learning about You. Thank You, Father, for each little life and I lift each one up to You Lord, and pray that by Your grace and love You would surround them with Your love throughout their lives.
Guard and guide them all I pray, and uphold and protect them. May each one come to know You Lord, as their personal Saviour, and may they all come to a deep understanding of all You are and all that You have done for them. Oh Lord, I pray most earnestly that each one would accept You into their hearts and lives as their Lord and Saviour.
I pray that as they grow into their teens and become young adults, that You would keep their hearts and minds turned to You and trusting in Jesus for their every need. Protect each one from the philosophies and mindset of the world that are so contrary to the truth of Scripture, and may each one grow in grace and become strong in their faith as they develop in wisdom and discernment.
Protect them from the evils of this age, keep them from temptations, and help them to live godly lives and to develop as responsible adults who will teach their own children the wonderful truth of Salvation through Christ Jesus our Lord. In His name I pray,
