The Bible says in Lamentations 2:19 that we should pour out our hearts like water before the Lord and lift up our hands to him for the lives of our children. Praying daily for our children is one of the most important things we can do for them; they are the future generations who will take the gospel to the lost and fulfill the great commission. These prayers and confessions will help you to pray on a daily basis for your children’s spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental needs, protection, courage, and strength. These prayers and confessions will help you to pray and confess the word of God over your children.
Father, I put upon my children the full armor of God and I thank You that they will be able to stand against the plots of the evil one. I thank You that they are girded with Your truth and that they are fitted with the sandals of peace. I thank You that they have upon them the breast plate of righteousness and they stand as the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I thank You for the helmet of salvation and that they operate in Your wisdom and walk in the mind of Christ. I thank You for the shield of faith that will protect them from any fiery dart the enemy would throw at them. I thank You that as they hold up the sword of the Spirit when the enemy comes at them, the spoken truth of Your word will defeat their adversary.
Father, I thank You in Jesus’ name that my children are protected from harm as Your word says that Your angels are encamped about them.
Lord, I thank You that You are my children’s light and their salvation; therefore they shall fear no one; You Lord God Almighty are the defense of their life, they shall not dread.
Lord, I thank You for giving Your angels charge over my children. I thank You that Your mighty angels will guard them concerning all of their ways and will lift up my children in their hands so they will not dash their foot against a stone.
Father, I ask in Jesus’ mighty name that You would deliver my children form wicked and evil men, for not everyone has faith in You. I thank You Lord that You are faithful and You will protect my children from the evil one.
(2 Thessalonians 3:2-3)
Father, I thank You that my children’s minds are set on whatever is honorable, whatever is right and pure, and whatever is lovely. I thank You that my child’s mind dwells on whatever is excellent and worthy of praise.
I thank You, Father, that my children hide Your word in their hearts so they won’t sin against You.
Father, I pray in Jesus’ name that my children will put You before all things, knowing that You are always with them and they will not be shaken.
I pray, Father, that my children will know that as they seek wisdom and knowledge from You they will be stable at all times.
Father, I thank You that You go ahead of my children and You are always with them, You will never leave them or fail them. I thank You that as they come to know that You will not forsake them they will not be dismayed.
Father, I pray that at any time my children are afraid, they will put their trust in You. I pray that they will know that You have not given them a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind.
(Psalm 56:3; 2 Timothy 1:7)
Father, I pray that my children will know that they have been chosen by You, that they are dearly loved by You. Father, that in knowing this they will walk in humbleness, kindness, and gentleness of heart and compassion.
Father, as my children acknowledge You as their rock and their redeemer, may they seek to make the words of their mouth and the meditation of their heart pleasing to You.
