6 War Room Prayers of Faith You Can Pray Over Your Kids and Grandkids

by | Dec 5, 2019 | Woman

It’s important to keep your kids surrounded with faith and love (instead of fear and doubt).

Anyone can believe what they see in regards to their child. But faith believes something it can’t see yet, according to the promises in God’s Word.

So let’s be faith-filled parents and grandparents! Let’s believe the best of our children and believe that God’s Word is working in their lives.

We can do that by taking regular personal prayer time to pray for them (not at them)—praying in faith according to the Word.

Here are six faith-prayers to get you started:

1. For safety (Ps. 91:10-11).

Father, I pray that no evil can come near my children today. They have supernatural protection everywhere they go, for God’s angels are with them. He has commanded those angels to watch over my children, holding them up and keeping them safe. No sickness can come near our household, and no plan of the enemy can prosper against us.

2. For good choices (Deut. 30:19, Rom. 8:14).

Father, in Jesus’ name, I thank You for helping my children make right choices for their lives today. I declare that they make godly choices every day. They choose Your way in life: right friends, right decisions, right actions, right thoughts. Your blessing is on them, and they are led by Your Spirit in their choices.

3. For favor (Ps. 5:12, Luke 2:52).

Father, I ask that You give my children supernatural favor today as they obey Your Word. I ask that as Your children, they will have extraordinary blessings and opportunities. I declare that the favor of God is upon them, and people want to bless and help them. They are treated like sons of the Most High God everywhere they go.

4. For supernatural guidance and help (John 16:13, 14:26).

Father, I trust the Holy Spirit in my children today. He is leading them and guiding them into truth, and they listen to His voice. He is teaching them and helping them in the affairs of life. My faith is not in my children’s ability to do everything right, but in the mighty Holy Spirit who lives in them.

5. For their divine destiny (Jer. 29:11, Rom. 11:29).

Father, I thank You that You have a wonderful, divinely ordered plan for my children’s whole life. They have a divine destiny, and I declare they are walking in it and toward it today. Help them every day to fulfill Your perfect plan for their life. I declare they have a bright future!

6. For obedience (Eph. 6:1-3).

Father, I call my children obedient. I declare that they honor their parents and other adults, so things go well with them. Everywhere they go today, things go well for them. And because they obey, they will live a long, satisfying life on the earth—the zoe kind of life. Obedience is a blessing in their life; thank You for helping them to understand that more every day. {eoa}
