Prayer For Young Children

Father, let my children make every effort to do what leads to peace.

Please keep them safe today. I ask that you would protect them from any harm or evil intent that would lurk close by, or attack them while they're unaware. I ask for you to cover them in your care and hide them in the safety of your powerful presence. I pray for you to protect their coming and going, and to remind them that you're always with them. Give them alertness, spiritual discernment, and wisdom to avoid temptation and to make the best choices. Give them a heart for your word and for your ways.

I pray that you would direct their steps, that your plans for them would prosper, and that every place you have determined for them to walk would be paved clear. We ask for you to open doors that need to be opened and close every one that needs to be shut tight. Allow every gift and treasure you have placed inside their lives to grow, develop, and flourish, to bring you glory.

I ask that you would raise up greatness in my children, greatness in this generation, willing to stand strong and true, passionate for you, believing that you have designed them for purpose and good works, which you have planned and prepared in advance for them to do.

Be a lamp for their feet. Be a light to their path. Shine over them. Fill them with your Spirit. Bless them with your favor and peace.

I thank you God, that you walk ahead of them, beside them, and behind them too. So I can trust you to always lead the way, be constantly at their side, and to have their back too, all at the same time.

Thank you so much for allowing me the privilege to care for my children, and I praise you for the work you are continuing to do in their lives. They are a gift to me and to many others.

I love you Lord. I need you. And I trust you today with these precious ones I love so dearly.

In Jesus' Name,


Dear God,

Another day is ahead, and once again, I want to release my children who I love so incredibly much, straight into your tender care. Because I know that's the best place they could ever be. Thank you in advance for all that you have in store, for this day, for this season, and for their entire lives.

I ask for your wisdom and direction over their day, that you would give them understanding beyond what their years say they should even know. I ask that you would remind my kids again of how very much you love them. I pray that they find security and confidence fully in you, knowing that you are trustworthy and true.

I ask for your peace to cover them. I ask for laughter and joy to fill their day. I pray that you would give them boldness and courage to face the challenges set before them, with the confidence and calmness that can only come from your Holy Spirit.

I ask that you would teach them your ways, help them to be respectful to others, obedient to your paths, and have a desire to learn your word. Give them a compassionate spirit, and a willingness to look beyond the outward appearance of another to the deeper heart.

I pray that you would bring wrong to the light, that you would bring restoration and forgiveness when they mess up and lose their way. I ask for you to protect them from feelings of shame or condemnation, but instead, cover them with your grace and hope. I pray that you would surround them with friends and leaders who would challenge them to press closer to you.

Dearest Lord, thank You for helping us through this day. Thank You for allowing us to be productive, for allowing us to be channels of Your blessing to the people whom we serve. Thank You also for allowing my kids to do the same today.

As we lay our heads to rest tonight, Lord, will you bless my little ones. Grant them a restful night. Allow them to recover their strength, that they may face tomorrow with confidence. Quiet their minds and guard their hearts tonight, Lord. Let no cares or worries surround them as they sleep. Instead, let Your love and peace be with them during the night.

I also ask You, Lord, to be their armor of protection as they rest tonight. Watch over them, and let no harm fall on them. Let no disease enter their bodies in their sleep. May Your hands be upon them tonight and every moment of their lives.

Thank You also, Lord, for granting me this opportunity to be a parent to my kids. Thank You for the wisdom that You give me in raising them. I am forever grateful for their lives, and for how they are growing up to be individuals that give glory to Your name. Keep enabling them, Lord, to grow in Godly character. Through this, allow them also to be good influences to their community.

Renew our strength, Lord, so that we may be ready for another day. Grant us a good night's rest, and make us able to serve You again tomorrow. All these I ask in Your Name, Amen.

Dearest Lord, this is the day that You have made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it. Thank You, Lord, for another opportunity to serve You and to live life in fullness. Thank You for the good night's sleep You have given to us. Thank You for restoring our strength for today. Thank You for the bright hope that we have for the day ahead. Truly, Lord, life is more worth living with You to guide us always.

Today, I ask You to bless my kids, Lord, that they too might experience Your grace today. Thank You that they are well-rested and ready to face another day. I am also grateful, Lord, for the wisdom You give to their young minds. Guide them always, Lord, to express love to the people around them their classmates, teachers, and friends. May they always exhibit the fruits of the Spirit love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Let them be fountains of blessing to everyone around them.

As I send them on their way to school, Lord, protect them all the way. Be their Guardian in the hours that I am not with them. Shield them from accidents, disease, and other forms of harm. Protect their minds from evil influences. Guard their hearts against any ungodly character. May their tongues always speak words that give life, and may their hands be extensions of Your grace to others.

As my kids go about their way, Lord, also enable them to be positive influencers for Your glory. Let them spread Your love to their community. May their friends catch a glimpse of who You are through their actions. Let them be salt and light to the world around them.

All these I pray in Your Name, Amen.

Lord Jesus, my child has fallen prey to disease. My precious little one is hurting, and I almost cannot bear to see the pain in her eyes. As a parent, there is nothing that hurts me more than seeing my child suffering. It is during these times that I wish I could do something more, but I just cannot. For that reason, Lord, I need You now, and my little one needs You even more.

Lord, I firmly believe that You have the power to heal my child. You are greater than this disease. You are the author of her life, and You are fully able to bring her back to normal. Touch her now with Your healing hands, God. Remove the affliction from within her body. Enable her to rise up and walk again. Bring the smile back to her face.

Despite all of this, I am still thankful, Lord, that You have given my little one a chance to rest. Thank You, Lord, that she is able to be comfortable at home as she recovers her strength. Thank You for giving her an unexpected day off from school. When the disease has left, she will be once again ready to face the challenges ahead of her.

As I look forward to my little one's complete healing, I would like to thank You ahead of time, Lord, for restoring her strength. Thank You for your healing touch that you will grant my child. Through this experience, allow her also, Lord, to experience You in a special way. Let this circumstance draw her closer to You. May it teach her to depend on You more, especially in times of weakness.

Thank You so much, Lord Jesus, that we are able to draw strength and healing from You. Even during the times when we are weak, You are always strong. Thank You, Lord, that You also share that strength with us when we need it the most. All these I pray in Your Name, Amen.

Protect my children, Father God, each and every day. As they go to school, and as they come back home, be their shield and their fortress. Keep them away from the evils of this world. Let no bad influence corrupt their precious minds. Let no accidents fall on them while they're away from home. Allow no physical harm to touch their bodies. Keep them away from illness.

Last but not least, Lord, bless their studies. Allow them to gain more knowledge both about You and the universe You created. May they develop minds that seek the Truth above all.

All these I ask in Your Name, Amen.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of life. Thank You especially for my children who You have entrusted to me. Truly, they are a treasure from You, Lord. They make life so much more fulfilling. I will be forever grateful to You for giving them to me.

As my kids are growing up, help me, Father, to be a good example to them always. Help me to be a Godly parent. Help me to love them just like You have loved me. Enable me to bring them up in proper discipline and instruction. Make me the instrument, Lord, by which they will see You and who You are. Being a parent is not an easy task, but with You, Lord, everything is possible.

I also ask You to bless my children, God. As I do my best, with Your help, to teach them how to live a righteous life, help them to always do the right thing. Bless their minds with sound decision-making skills. Let their hands be channels of Your blessing to their friends, classmates, and relatives. Let not their tongues be used to destroy others through harsh words. Rather, enable them to speak words of life, encouragement, and grace.
