Lord, I lift my children/grandchildren to You today and pray, according to Your Word, that:

>They will know Christ as Savior early in life and desire a close relationship with You throughout their childhood, teen, and adult years (Mark 10:13-16; Luke 2:52; 2 Timothy 3:15).

>They will develop the discipline of prayer and time in Your Word (Joshua 1:8; Daniel 6:10; Matthew 4:4; Philippians 4:6-7).

>You will bring into their lives godly adults and friends who will help them grow in godly living (Psalm 1:1-3; Philipians 1:27; Proverbs 27:17; I Corinthians 4:15).

>You will keep them pure and strengthen them against temptation (Job 17:9; Psalm 24:3-4; I Corinthians 6:18-20).

>They would develop discernment, wisdom, responsibility, and a strong conscience (I Kings 3:11-12; I Timothy 1:5; Daniel 6:3).

>They will be caught if they wander into cheating, lies or mischief (Psalm 119:71; Proverbs 20:30).

>They will see other people as You do, treating them with love and kindness (Matthew 25:35-40; Romans 12:10; Philippians 2:1-4).

>You will protect them from emotional, physical and spiritual danger (Psalm 28:7-9; Psalm 41; John 17:15; 2 Thessalonians 3:3).

>You will prepare them to be a godly, loving and faithful spouse or prepare them to glorify You in their singleness (I Corinthians 7:7-8); and that You also prepare their future spouse (2 Corinthians 6:14-15; Ephesians 5:21-33).

>They would leave home with an eternal perspective and Christ-like values (Matthew 28:18-20; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 1:21).

>They will sense Your calling on their lives and their lives will count for Your kingdom (Psalm 78:1-8; 103:12-18; 2 Timothy 1:9).

  1. Just as a suggestion to others: I printed these off to make into (large) bookmarks for the Children’s Church kids to include in their home made cards to their dads on Father’s Day….I’m laminating them too. 😀 We all can use specific instructions for prayer on the behalf of the ones in our lives who we love.

  7. We still dont know where they are, what kind of people and situations they are being exposed to and how their basic needs are being met. Let go and let God,let go and let God, let go and let God.

  8. America needs Jesus back in America, as I read your requests I wanted to cry, Tajee doesn’t need the prayers, it’s the Bullies that taunt her that need the prayers. We are all hurting, we all need to pray for one another, we all hurt, we all need Jesus !!
    EVENING AND MORNING AND AT NOON I WILL PRAY, AND CRY ALOUD, AND HE SHALL HEAR MY VOICE. PS. 55:17 Tajee will need to pray and forgive these bullies. she will be an example for these bullies, they are bullies because they were taught to be bullies, no one dislikes a bully more than them self, they are to be pity !!!! We need Jesus back in our lives, we need “HIM” back in our schools. It is easy to say: LET GO AND LET GOD, we all need to pray and let God do what he does best. I love you all and you can depend on my prayers, depend on your miracle, I believe in miracles, your miracle is only a prayer away. Answered prayer is the interchange of love between the Father and His child. We all need prayer, so pray for some one, let some one pray for you and your needs. Christians work together, together we can bring Jesus back into America. Amen

  12. I have a laminated “Lifting My Children/Grandchildren Through Prayer”, dated 2000…. flip side “Praying for Myself As a Parent or Grandparent”.
    Is it possible I could order more of these. I would like to distribute them to my Christ Care women’s Bible class.

  13. I’m not a distributor! This is a personal blog. 🙂 Sorry not to be of more help. I think if you contacted “Family Life” you’d have better luck.
