“Lord, please help my children to develop a heart for missions, a desire to see your glory declared among the nations, your marvelous deeds among all people” (Psalms 96:3).
I love this. I love it because I can’t think of a better way to end these 31 days of prayer, praying for our children to go out into the world and share the Good News with all! Isn’t that the whole point of our entire existence? We’ve spent the last 30 days praying for a solid foundation for our kids; now let’s go be world changers! “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). Let’s take this portion of the Lord’s Prayer and apply it in our lives. Let’s continue to pray these attributes over our children and not just stop because these 31 days are over. Even if you missed days and forgot to pray every day, it’s okay, keep this list as a reminder and make it your goal to pray for your kids every day. They need it! I’m going to end with the paragraph at the end of original site this list is taken from. May the Lord bless you and keep you!
“After several weeks of praying through the above list for my children, I discovered an additional benefit to my prayer program; as I prayed with my children each night, the Lord brought to mind the subject I’d prayed for that morning, and I would repeat my request in Aubrey and Aaron’s hearing. Before long, they began to echo my praying, and pour out their hearts in prayer for the very virtues and qualities I desired to see in them. Thus, my simple prayer program not only changed how I prayed, but also how my children pray… and, by God’s grace how they live as well.”
