Introducing Part 2 Of Our 30 Day Prayer Challenge
PRAYING BIBLICAL VIRTUES FOR YOUR CHILDREN Vol. 2
I believe that prayer is the most important part of rearing our children. Why? Because God can do what we cannot do!
The battle for our kids is waged on our knees, so we need to saturate their lives in prayer.
Thus saith the Lord, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.” Isaiah 45:11
It’s not enough to diligently teach our kids about God and His Word. We must also pray for God to work in their hearts in a mighty way.
We need to work as though it all depends on us and pray as though it all depends on Him!
I believe that the power of God penetrates a child’s life when a parent prays, yet so often we neglect it and get discouraged when we see them making wrong choices. We wonder if the mistakes we make as a parent are the reason for their wrong choices.
The thing to remember is that none of us can be perfect, and that’s okay because it’s being a praying parent that makes the difference, and that is something we ALL can be!
Our weapon as we pray:
To make our prayers more powerful and effective, we need to use God’s word as our weapon. If we declare the Word of God as we pray, we have a powerful weapon that no enemy can prevail against.
The Word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword. Hebrews 4:12
One of the best things you can do for your kids is to pray Scripture for them!

Hi Louise! I’m so glad you’re going through the first prayer challenge. You can definitely sign up for the 2nd one later — once it starts on June 1 it will be set so people can sign up at any time and go through it.
I would love to join up for the prayer challenge vol 2 but I’m still finishing the first one (up to day 11). Can I join at a later date?
Like Donna, most of our children are grown up. We have one daughter at home still who’s 15. Three have left home and we love to pray for them all including our son in law and daughter in law to be. Now we include any future husbands for our two unmarried daughters as well as future grandchildren and great grandchildren too!
My husband and myself both come from unbelieving families so we want to leave a heritage of prayer cover over our family. Thank you for the challenge. It has been a real learning curve and encouragement.
I agree totally! Thanks for stopping in. 🙂
We should never stop praying for our children no matter how old they are or we are. #Awisewoman linkup
Hi Nerissa! Yes, the challenge starts on June 1st — thank you for pointing that out to me! I updated the email.
I just want to clarify that this starts June 1st. The email says August 1…thanks
Hi Mieke, I’m glad you want to share the challenge info with your prayer group. I’m not sure wha tyou mean by the ap mark — could you just share the link to it?
I would like to share this on whatts ap with our women prayergroup. But I don’t see the ap mark….
Donna, I love that! WE are the ones who need to be praying for them, and yes, even when they are grown!
If we’re not praying for our children, who is? Mine are grown, but they still need prayer!
