Praying for my sons

It is such a privilege to bring those we love before the Throne of Grace.  

Here are some of my prayers for my little men.

  • Cause them to come to a knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:3,4)
  • With your grace upon them, may they become strong and increase in wisdom (Luke 2:40)
  • Place within them heart of obedience and help them to realize the importance of obeying us as their parents (Ephesians 6:1-4) 
  • Even in their youth, may they be as a grown up plant (Psalm 144:12)
  • May they have a teachable heart, one that desires to learn and to grow (Proverbs 18:15)
  • Help them to have the strength and discipline to flee the evil desires of youth and to pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace (2 Timothy 2:22)
  • Teach them to work hard as working for the Lord and not for man (Colossians 3:23)
  • May they become strong and courageous men, knowing that You are with them (Deuteronomy 31:6)
  • May they act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with You (Micah 6:8)
Here is another great resource.
