Prayer For First Born Son
First, oh Lord, forgive us for the times when we have misplaced our priorities so that we haven't been available to model a strong relationship with You in front of our kids. Help us to understand the power of our influence in our children's lives and to reorder our schedule so that we can be available to both directly and indirectly offer the godly influence that our sons desperately need.
Second, while we do pray that our sons would be protected from negative influences, we also pray that you would surround them with friendships and mentor-type relationships that portray what it means to have an authentic relationship with Christ. In turn, we pray that you would raise our sons up to be the influencers of the next generation. We pray that you would allow godliness and righteousness to dwell in their hearts so richly that these evidences of your truth spill out of them and to every person they encounter.
Through it all, we pray that they would not be prone to laziness or complacency, but that they would believe that even a single candle burning in the dark makes a difference and would boldly stand up for truth, even when it's unpopular.
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"
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.
Heavenly Father, I come to You with thanksgiving in my heart and praise and bless You for the birth of my baby son and the great joy that he is to us.
Thank You for the heritage and gift of children, and like Hannah in the Bible, I want to dedicate my precious son to You Lord. I consecrate his little life to You and pray that You would give me the wisdom to bring him up to know and love the Lord Jesus as his Saviour.
I give him to You Lord, and thank You that you have lent him to me for the first and vital season of his life. Protect him I pray, and keep him from all forms of evil. May he grow up to be a mighty man of God in the days to come. This I ask in the name of Jesus,
There Lord I thank you for giving me strenght I ask in Jesus name that you may remove every hate,rebellious, and abussiveNess that my son is having trouble with, let him be of good sprit and show him the right way to be a better person ,so he can grow to have a relationship with you God and so he may love and appreciate the good things in life, bless him with a family that he may cherish and care for help him to love and respect his mother and family.
Every evil garment of backwardness and stagnation affecting me as the first son, be destroyed and replaced with a new garment by the blood of Jesus.
All the blessings the Lord has given unto me as the first son of my family, shall remain with me for life, in Jesus name.
