Pray for your children.

I just wanted to let everyone know that you can follow a link in the side bar of our blog that will take you to a site for a scripture to pray over your child/children every week. The power of a praying mother is unmatched. Especially when she is praying scripture. It is simple...just click on the link and read the prayer and scripture for the week. Then pray that prayer every day for your children. There is a new one every week at your fingertips. Try it out. You and your children will reap eternal rewards. If the prayer does not fit the age situation or your child just simply scroll down and find a different weeks prayer. Just remember that it is never to early to cover our children with prayer concerning things "to come". What better way to bless your children than to speak it over them so that they have heard those words spoken for them. Also speaking it out loud means that the enemy will hear it as well. Remember he is not omnipresent nor is he omniscient so it does us good to "speak up" in our prayers. Let us make sure that the enemy hears that we are speaking out against him.

I look forward to hearing how this is impacting you and your family. I have copied this weeks below to get you started.

Week of March 23, 2008

I pray that You would enable __________________ to live in ongoing forgiveness. I pray that they will forgive themselves for times of failure, and may they never blame You, Lord, for things that happen on this earth and in their lives. According to Your Word I pray that they will love their enemies, bless those who curse them, do good to those who use and persecute them, so that they may enjoy all Your blessings (Matthew 5:44-45). I pray that they will live in the fullness of Your forgiveness for them and walk in the freedom of forgiveness in their own hearts.

"Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ also forgave you." Ephesians 4:31-32

"Whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses." Mark 11:25

Thank you for the information! We do pray for our children, but I always feel like it is more "general" rather than specific...this should help!
