Praying God's Word for our Children

By: Deana Stevens, Preschool Teacher

As we know from our key verse for this year, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful….” (2 Timothy 3:16). One way I have found It to be very useful is using It as a template to pray for my children.  God tells us that the prayers of the faithful avail much (James 5:16), but how much more powerful would it be to use HIS very own words to pray for our children! When my children have a need, I find a Bible verse that pertains to that need, insert his/her name into that Scripture verse, and pray it over and over again until the issue is resolved.  A lot of times, I proactively pray Scripture for their future decisions and situations.  I trust God when He says that His Word does not return empty, but will accomplish what He desires and achieve the purpose for which He sent it. (Isaiah 55:11)  Below are some of my favorite Scripture verse prayers:

“You have not given __________ a spirit of fear or timidity, but of power, love, sound mind, and self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:7)

“__________ will not fear for You are with him/her.  __________ will not be afraid because You are his/her God.  You will help __________ and make him/her strong.  You will uphold __________ with Your victorious right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)

“Command Your angels concerning __________ to guard him/her in all his/her ways.”  (Psalm 91:11)

“__________ will be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.” (James 1:19)

“__________ will trust in You with all his/her heart and lean not on his/her own understanding.  In all his/her ways __________ will acknowledge You, and You will make his/her paths straight.”  (Proverbs 3:5-6)
