Scripture Verses to Pray for Your Children

Two years ago, I shared with you about a book I read that changed the way I pray for my children.  It’s called Pray Big for Your Child.  That book taught me how to pray bigger, bolder, specific prayers for my children.  Recently a friend shared 10 specific scripture verses to pray for your children.  Use these scripture verses as the foundation to pray big, bold, specific prayers for your children.

Scripture Verses to Pray for Your Children


And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”-  Acts 16:31

All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. – Isaiah 54:13

“And as for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the Lord: “My Spirit that is upon you, and my words that I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouth of your offspring, or out of the mouth of your children’s offspring,” says the Lord, “from this time forth and forevermore.” – Isaiah 59:21

The children of your servants shall dwell secure; their offspring shall be established before you. – Psalm 102:28

Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments! His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. – Psalm 112:1-2

The righteous who walks in his integrity— blessed are his children after him! – Proverbs 20:7
I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread. – Psalm 37:25

In the fear of the Lord one has strong confidence, and his children will have a refuge. – Proverbs 14:26

I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear me forever, for their own good and the good of their children after them. – Jeremiah 32:39

Therefore you shall keep his statutes and his commandments, which I command you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land that the Lord your God is giving you for all time.” – Deuteronomy 4:40

As you can see, the Bible is clear that prayers for our children are powerful.  Write each of the above scripture verses to pray for your children on cards, like index cards, or you can use pretty cardstock papers.  Then, either make a little booklet or post them around your house so that you can pray these scripture verses often, every day, as much as possible.

In addition to scripture verses to pray  for your children, I highly recommend to books which have been pivotal for helping me pray for my kids.

If you’re interested in reading Pray Big for Your Child by Will Davis Jr., you can get your copy here.

Stormie Omartian has written another great book about praying for your children.  You can get your copy of The Power of a Praying Parent here.
