Prayer For My Child Protection
Dear Lord, Your Word tells us that it is a sin to do nothing when it's in our power to help someone in need. Help us to speak out against crimes against children. Prod us to act whenever we suspect that a child is in danger. Don't stop prompting us until we do the right thing.
Jehovah Jireh, I know that You are my child's provider. I know that where I cannot reach or provide for my child, You will. Though my child may walk in the midst of trouble, You will preserve his/her life. You stretch Your hand against the wrath of his/her enemies, and Your right hand will be my child's deliverer. I will not fear because I know that You will provide my child with the protection they need. Amen.
Righteous God, I pray that my child continues to grow in his/her love for You, because I know that for those who love you, all things work together for good, for those who are called according to Your purpose. Therefore, I praise You because my child is protected by Your promise, a promise of good things for Your people. Thank You for being the Light of my child's life, continue to protect him/her. Amen.
Beautiful One, I adore You because You will be my child's rock, fortress and deliverer. I know this because You have been my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge. You are my child's shield and the horn of his/her salvation, my stronghold. Thank You for protecting my child and I, You are our source of peace and refuge in a world that shows us evil. We will not fear, for You are with us and You go before us. Amen.
Lord, I know that my child's help (and protection) comes from You, the Lord who made heaven and earth. You will not let Your foot be moved. You will not slumber. Thank You for being my child's keeper, You are the shade on my child's right hand. The sun will not strike my child by day, nor the moon by might. Thank You in advance for keeping my child from all evil. You will keep my child's life, from this time forth and forevermore. Amen.
God of Protection, I thank You for Your hand upon my child's life. You created my child. My child belongs to You. When my child passes through the waters, You will be with him/her, and the rivers will not overwhelm my child. When my child walks through the fire, they will not be burned, and the flame will not consume him/her. For You are Lord our God, the Holy One of Israel, our Savior. You are our Divine Protector, I place my child's life in Your hands. Amen.
Lord, chaos and fear cripple communities overrun by gang violence. Thank You so much for the gift of Your Son. Through Him, we truly become a new creation. We claim Jesus' blessing for peacemakers in Matthew 5:9. Help young people see themselves the way You see them, so they can help bring peace and hope to other people's lives.
Father, we come to you in prayer to protect Your children from abductors who prey on the most vulnerable. Bless the radical partnership between leaders of all faiths, law enforcement, traditional healers, and communities to stop child sacrifice once and for all. Comfort grieving parents in their time of unimaginable loss.
