Praying For Our Children

Lord, I prayed for this child, and You have granted me what I asked of You. 1 Samuel 1:27
The assignment to pray for our children is absolutely essential to raise up a generation that will withstand the enemy's attack upon them (Gen. 22:17, Psa.127:5).

1. Salvation. "Lord, let salvation spring up within my children, that they may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory" (Is. 45:8, 2 Tim. 2:10).

2. Growth in grace. "I pray that my children may grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Pet. 3:18).

3. Love. "Grant, Lord, that my children may learn to live a life of love, through the Spirit who dwells in them" (Gal. 5:25, Eph. 5:2).

4. Honesty and integrity. "May integrity and honesty be their virtue and their protection" (Ps. 25:21).
