I have this feeling of worry and excitement every time I think about my children’s future. I want the best for them, and the things happening around them sometimes scare us. Many times when I am afraid and lost in thoughts, I find solace in praying daily over my children. In this guide, I have created a thirty days prayer plan that can serve as a guide to pray for your children. These prayers include prayers of protection, deliverance, direction, success and blessing for your children. I have also added prayers for their future spouse to the list. Before we go into the prayers, what are the benefits of praying over your children?

Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to him for the lives of your children, who faint from hunger at every street corner.

Lamentations 2:19

6 Tips to Stop Comparing Children

Children are a heritage from the Lord,
    offspring a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
    are children born in one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
    whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
    when they contend with their opponents in court.

Psalm 127 vs 3-6

The Bible mentions that children are like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior. Arrows are great weapons capable of piercing the hardest surfaces. An arrow forged from the right material and shot by a skilful archer achieves its aim. Parents are like the bow of an arrow. How much you are willing to give to prayers, proper training and direction for your children determine their outcome. This means that God has given us these children as a gift, and we have a responsibility to shoot our arrows in the right direction.

It is difficult for an arrow to reach its full potential without proper direction. I encourage you to pray these daily prayers over your children as they navigate life. I hope these prayers are helpful to you as you pray for your future children.
