Praying for the Children: Prayerfulness

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
~~ Ephesians 6:18

Grant, Lord, that my children’s lives may be marked by prayerfulness, that they may learn to “pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests”

I pray that they embrace Your gift of prayer. Your gift to the strong and the weak, to the smallest child and frailest of the old. I pray they do not suffer the tragedy to go through life leaving the gift of prayer unused!

I pray that they experience intimacy with You. May they recognize that though You are all-sufficient, all-powerful, and all-knowing, You desire to draw close, to communicate, to speak to them, to seek their response, to hear their prayers.

Help their mother and I to nurture prayer warriors, strong soldiers for the Lord, for we need the children to pray.

I ask these things in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ.

Amen
