Prayer For Mother And Son
Dear Lord, on this day that we celebrate ________'s birth, I pray for blessings and joy over ________. You knew everything about him before his birth and You have a plan of prosperity and hope for his life! Let him feel confident and ready for the year ahead knowing that You have an order to his steps and a purpose for his life. Help him to find joy in every circumstance in life, knowing that You work all things out for good. I thank You for ________, for loving him with unconditional love, and for the promises You have spoken over his life. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Dear Jesus, we weep with you over the number of our kids who are buying into the lie that sexual pleasure is something to experiment with. We pray that our sons would treasure their sexuality as a true gift from You, and that they would honor that gift by saving it as a precious treasure to give their future spouse. We ask that you would help them to be strong in the face of their own desires and that they would choose purity in the face of temptation.
Lord we also ask that you'd protect our sons from the idea that they must do anything and everything (including abusing their bodies through eating disorders, drug abuse, or other harmful behaviors) in order to attaining a preferred shape or figure. We pray you'd protect our sons from that kind of destructive thinking, and that if they're tempted to take these kind of drastic measures, that you'd send someone in their lives to stop them. Help them to remember over and over that their identity is not in how they look on the outside but what you see as their potential and worth on the inside.
We pray that our children would treasure their health as a gift from God and that they would have a passion to eat nutritious food and to stay active in order to do their part to take care of this treasure.
Dear Jesus, help my son know that we are all born as sinners and separated from God because of our wicked hearts. However, at an early age, him grasp the life-transforming concept that he does not have to live as a sinner under that condemnation.
Teach my son that he has the opportunity to accept a new, beautiful identity that is called good, not because of what he has done or what he looks like, but because he is secure in who YOU say they are: treasured, delightful, known and protected. Let him not place their self-worth in accomplishments he may or may not achieve, but let him discover these deeper truths about who You believe he is and build every decision he makes on that sure foundation.
Lord, I pray that You will create in my son a clean heart and that You would constantly renew a right spirit within him, keeping his thoughts and actions pure and motivated by love. Guard him from temptation, and let him know You are always faithful to give him a way out and help to endure. May the words of his mouth and the meditations of his heart always please you and edify others.
Lord, I pray Your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over my son. Keep evil far from him, and help him to trust You as his refuge and strength. I pray You will guard his mind from harmful instruction, and grant him discernment to recognize truth. I pray You will make him strong and courageous in the presence of danger, recognizing that You have overcome and will set right all injustice and wrong one day. Help him to find rest in Your shadow, as he lives in the spiritual shelter You provide for him. Let him know that the only safe place is in Jesus,and that his home on earth is only temporary.
Heavenly Father, help us to model a healthy example of how to handle possessions and money. Help us to work hard, but to not wear ourselves out in order to get rich so that our children can witness a positive, godly view of hard work and the pursuit of success.
We pray that our sons would persevere in whatever vocation you give them and that they would work with cheerful hearts as if they were serving you directly.
We pray that our sons would see at an early age that money and possessions are a gift from You and thus must be always held with an open hand so that You can use those gifts to bless others.
We ask that our sons would find their value in their true identity as a child of You, not in the possessions they do or do not have. We pray for contentment and gratefulness in whatever situation they're givenrich or poor. We pray they would have a steadfast commitment to work hard with the talents you've given them so that they could support themselves, their families and use their money as a way to bless others in need.
Ultimately, we pray that they would discover that the greatest wealth they could possess would be in relationships, especially in a relationship with You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Heavenly Father, how I thank You for the joy I have found in this son that You gave me.. and how quickly the years have passed.. and he has grown into a man and a soldier.
I thank You for the joy I have had as I have watched him grow from his babyhood and infant years through his teenage time to manhood - and Lord my thoughts are somewhat divided as I realise that he is now in the services - a man called to serve his country and fellowman in this important and uncertain military position.
Lord I give him into Your hands and pray that You would lead and guide him, protect and support him as he takes up his position as a soldier and protector of this green and pleasant land of ours.
Father I know that he has not always been as close to You as I would have liked, but I pray that You would use this time in the army as a opportunity to draw him back to Yourself and renew his commitment to You. I pray that he may grow in grace and in a knowledge of Jesus, knowing that all who are in Christ have nothing to fear in this current evil world for we are one in Christ. Into Your hands I commit my son in Jesus name.
Heavenly Father, I kneel before You grieved in my spirit and with deep pain in my heart, due to the loss of my son, whom I loved so dearly and who has been taken from me so cruelly.
Father I know that he is in Your presence now, but I have been left with a gaping hole in my life that is hard to express and impossible to explain.. and yet I know that You grieved over the death of Your dearly beloved Son, Who gave His life as a ransom for others so that we might believe in Him and be given life everlasting and in my heart I know that there is no-one who understand the loss of a son like You and there is no one who can comfort the heart of those that are grieving more than our heavenly Father for You are the God of all comforts, Who comforts us in all our afflictions and pain.
Lord I know that there are others also who are going through this same, deep sadness and loss of their sons too, and I want to lift each and every one up to You and pray that You would comfort every mother and father who has had to go through the devastating loss of their son.
Thank You that Your grace and pity is beyond our understanding and that Your peace can calm each aching heart and still the troubled mind of all who are grieving.. and we pray that in a wonderful way You would meet the needs of each one at this time of loss, and draw them into a closer walk with Yourself - this I ask in the name of Your own, dearly beloved Son Jesus Christ my Lord,
