Mustard Seed Prayers-Children

We are excited to introduce to you our newest contributor.  Lyn’s passion is to pray the Scriptures. On Thursdays, she will be sharing Mustard Seed Prayers with us. Join us in welcoming Lyn to the T2 Women Team.

Matthew 1720Today our children have so much more to deal with than we did. They are bombarded everywhere they go. Schools are not what they used to be. Nothing seems safe for them anymore. All the more we need to pray for them. Ask the Lord to show you areas that your child struggles in and for the word to pray over them. Here are just a few examples of what the Lord has shown me for my children.

Proverbs 3: 5-8

That ______ would trust in You, Lord with all their heart and not lean on their own understanding, but that _________ would acknowledge You in all their ways, because it is You, Lord who makes their path straight. That______ would not be wise in their own eyes, ______would fear You, and turn from evil, for it will be healing to _________ body and refreshment to _______ bones.

I Thessalonians 5:6

Father, help my children not to be like many others around them, but let them be alert and self-controlled in all they do.

Psalm 119:130

Father, let the unfolding of Your words give light to ________ and understanding to ______ who is not firmly committed to You.
(My bible uses the word simple and when I looked it up it was a person who was not firmly committed)

Proverbs 30:5

Father, show _____ that Your every word proves true and that You are a shield to those who take refuge in You.

  1. My Three Sons are grown and out of the house but I prayed over them every day before they left for school. They mentioned it to me not too long ago about how it made them feel “safe”. Even though they used to “roll their eyes” or shuffle their feet and say they were in a hurry there were still times if I would forget they would remind me, “Hey Mom, you haven’t prayed yet!” And praying the scriptures is so very important and so very powerful!! It will keep a hedge of protection around your kids! Great post!

    • Thanks for sharing Nannette and encouraging us all! It’s one thing to pray for our children, but even better for them to hear those petitions of their momma. 🙂

  2. I love to pray the Word too. Nothing more powerful than this sword of His word! Thanks for sharing this…
