A Dad's Prayer For His Children

Devotional

THE FUTURE


Today’s Prayer “God I pray for my child’s future. Help them to discover the gifts you have blessed them with. I pray for the future friends. I pray for the future spouse. I pray that they would follow you now and into eternity.”


One of the greatest acts of release is praying for the future of your child. It’s a crazy world out there, and nothing is guaranteed. When we pray for their future we open up faith that God is in control, He will make a way, and He will guide our child. One of the roles of a good parent is to help your child learn new skills and abilities to not only equip them for daily life but also to help them discover gifts that God has uniquely designed them with.


Children are also very impressionable and praying for quality friends for your children will likely influence who they become. Sometimes it’s important to pray that particular questionable friends may be removed from your child’s life.


Next, we turn to praying for your child’s future spouse. That God would raise them up to be a godly partner, who also follows the Lord. Be reminded that only God knows the future and by praying these prayers we are entrusting our children in faith to their heavenly Father.
