for Sickness and Healing

Lord Jesus, my child has fallen prey to illness. My precious little one is hurting, and I almost cannot bear to see the pain in my child’s eyes. As a parent, there is nothing that hurts me more than seeing my child suffering. During these hard times, I wish I could do something more, but I just cannot. For that reason, Lord, I need You now, and my little one needs You even more.

Bring the smile back to my child’s face.

Despite all of this, I am still thankful, Lord, that You have given my little one a chance to rest. Thank You, Lord, that she is able to be comfortable at home as my child recovers strength. Thank You for giving my child an unexpected day off from school. When the disease has left, my child will be once again ready to face the challenges ahead.

As I look forward to my little one’s complete healing, I would like to thank You ahead of time, Lord, for restoring her strength. Thank You for your healing touch that you will grant my child. Through this experience, allow her also, Lord, to experience You in a special way. Let this circumstance draw my little one closer to You. May it teach my child to depend on You more, especially in times of weakness.

Thank You so much, Lord Jesus, that we are able to draw strength and healing from You. Even during the times when we are weak, You are always strong. Thank You, Lord, that You also share that strength with us when we need it the most. All these I pray in Your Name, Amen.

I thank you that you understand my anxiety and are eager to meet me in the midst of it, Amen.

Biblical Virtues for My Children

Loving Lord, I pray that my children will come to a knowledge of the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ crucified and risen from the dead for their forgiveness of sins – their salvation and eternal life. I pray they may grow in grace and in the knowledge of Christ – and that they learn to live a life that is pleasing to You.

Give them integrity in their dealings with others and a heart that seeks after truth and virtue and develop in them a wisdom, alertness and self-control in all they set their hearts to achieve.

May Your word become a sweet joy to them and may they be endowed with the fruit of the Spirit and grow in Love and compassion, mercy and patience – goodness, kindness and purity.

Above all Lord give them a servants heart to serve You and others in the strength and power of the Holy Spirit and open doors of opportunity, so that they may serve You wherever You choose to place them.. Give them a willingness and ability to work and a grateful heart that is contented with what they have – and lead them into the way of truth all the days of their lives, in Jesus name I pray,


For Courage

Lord, help me to instill a spirit of strength and courage in my child. May I allow them to face life’s problems, rather than trying to fix every issue for them myself. Help my child to turn to you in days of struggle and know they can persevere. Help them to know Your presence is with them all the time, Amen.

For Child’s Wisdom and Learning

I come to you Father, and pray that my children are knowledgeable and skillful in all wisdom, discernment, and understanding that I know is a gift from You. I pray that they are competent to learn whatever they need to know, and that Your spirit fills them fully in all things. Lord, I know You can and You will give them the aptitude for understanding and wisdom when they are young, and when they are grown. Their foundation starts with You, and I am grateful. In Your name I pray these things, Amen.

for Children’s Integrity

Dear Lord Jesus – You were the one Who said let the children come to me for of such is the kingdom of heaven.. I thank You for my children and the way that they are learning about You in their daily lives and ask that in Your grace they may grow in wisdom and integrity and understand the importance of honesty and truth.

Give me wisdom as I teach and train them so that they learn to make the right choices and to grow closer to You each day. Lord You promised that if we bring up a child in the way they should go then when they are older they will not depart from it – help me to lay a good, firm spiritual foundation based on correct scriptural principles in their lives. Give me wisdom as I correct them, and keep me from expecting behaviours from them that I do not fully comply with in my own life.

Lord I pray that they come to a true understanding of biblical standards and godly values – and that they learn to quickly acknowledge their faults while knowing that it is by Your grace that they are forgiven and by Your grace that they may grow to be more like the Lord Jesus.

Guide them into truth and I ask that they may come to know and love You more and more Whom to know is life eternal. Help them to develop truth in the inward parts and realise the importance of integrity and honesty in all they say and do. Lord I give my children over to You and pray that You would equip me to furnish them with all they need to grow into godly men and women, in Jesus name I pray,


for My Child’s Heart

Dear God, I pray that my child’s heart will be softened towards the Gospel. There is nothing that saves but Jesus! You call Your children to Yourself by Your love. May Your love draw them even today! May they have a heart of compassion for lost souls. John 14:6 says that Jesus is the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Jesus. You love my child even more than I do, and I thank You for that! Amen.
