Do Not Fear We Have the Authority – Prayer

Hello community,

I am a firm believer in a God that is greater than I could ever be. I share prayers on this blog because I believe that it is crucial for you and I to bring God in the mist of our parenting techniques. Why, because we don’t have all of the answers, and surprisingly letting our hands go at times brings the greatest clarity and even comfort.

So, as you read the following prayer, let go of the stress and allow God to intervene and fill in the gaps of what’s missing in your day, your energy, and even your parenting ability.

Do Not Fear We Have the Authority: Recite the follow scripture:

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 KJV.

Amen

Parents Prayer: Let the Glory of the Lord Arise

Parents and Guardians,

let’s be honest, it can sometimes be difficult to stay positive and see the silver lining with everything going on.  I would like to encourage you today to tap into the positive love and glory of God with this powerful prayer.

Heavenly Father, I ask that You let the Glory of the Lord rise upon
me, according to Isaiah 60 verse 2. I ask You Lord to let Your
Glory be seen on me throughout this day and to always show the
mind of You Lord today and every day. Heavenly Father I ask that
when anyone looks upon me this day, they will see you Lord in
and around me. Let every action that I do today proclaim you Lord
in every way. In Jesus name we pray.

Amen.

Angels For Protection Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

I ask You to loose Your angels in great abundance in my presence, into my home, properties, buildings, and work places to protect me, guard me, and to keep out anything that is not of You, Lord Jesus.

Heavenly Father, I ask You to create a hedge of protection by loosing Your Mighty Warring angels around me, my home, work places and every place that I set my feet on this day to protect me from any evil or harm. In Jesus Christ Holy Name we pray.

Amen!

Prayer for the Single Parents

Heavenly Father,

I thank You for my child (children). I know that children are a gift from You (Psalms 127:3-5), that you have placed them in my care. Lord You know the challenges I face each day as a single parent. Children can seem to consume all of my time, energy, and patience. It can be trying for two parents to raise them, and as a single parent the daily tasks can seem overwhelming at times.

Father, I am trusting You to supply all our needs: spiritual, financial, physical. I want to enjoy my child (children), and I want their time with me to be a blessing. Children learn more from what they see than from what they hear. Therefore, I ask you to strengthen me daily to respond and react to each challenge as You would have me to. Let me be as patient and gentle with them as You are with me.

1 Corinthians 10:13 says that You will not put on me more than I can bear. This is Your promise to always provide what I need to accomplish Your will in the midst of trials. Young people can face such temptation, abuse, rejection, pressure to conform. The list seems unending. Let our home be a place of peace, comfort and refuge from the evil in the outside world. Lord, let them see that it is faith in You and obedience to You that brings peace and wholeness. May they know by the way I treat them that they truly are a gift and a blessing to me. May they understand Your love and faithfulness to them because of what they see in me. Give me strength, give me grace. In Jesus name, amen.

Prayer for Teenagers to Pray

Heavenly Father,

You are a loving and forgiving God and I ask You Lord to forgive me for all my sins and any unforgiveness that I may have in my heart. I ask You Lord to forgive me for not always making You a priority in my life. I need Your help right now.

I am being tempted to do things that are not good for me. Give me strength to say no to these pressures. Help me to find good and Godly things to keep me busy in place of the things that my friends want me to do. You are my strength, Lord. I know, that You understand all the temptations that face us today and what it will take to keep me from being lured in the wrong direction. So, Lord, I trust in You.

You know my heart Lord. Help me to receive fully, with understanding, Your Word in James 1:3-4, so that when my faith is tested, my endurance has a chance to grow. I know that You will guide me along the right pathway for my life and that You will advise me and watch over me and that I must have faith in You to do these things for me. You are my counselor and I’m in need of Your guidance. I don’t know what to do (Psalm 32:8). Help me to do what You want me to do in all situations that I must face.

Please Lord, put godly people in my path. I know Lord that there are friends who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24). I ask You, Lord to help me find the kind of Christian friends that will be closer than a brother. Help me Lord to be a good and Godly friend to others. Open my eyes to see the good qualities in people around me. There are so many questions that I need to ask and I am torn between finding the truth, and having a good time and keeping my friends. I want to do the right thing instead of wearing a mask and being a phony just to be popular.

Heavenly Father, I ask for You to show me Your Face when I feel like giving up. Remind me of Your unconditional love when I seem to have no hope in me. I know Lord that You will continue the battle for me when I can’t. I want to learn to cling to You when I am going in the wrong direction. Help me to keep my thoughts on You when I become weak. Help me to continue to praise You during these low times. I thank You, Heavenly Father, for reaching down into my world and drawing me closer to You. Thank You for allowing me to soak up Your strength during moments like these. I thank you Lord for never giving up on me, even when I’ve given up on myself.

Make me into the worthwhile person you destined me to be. Teach me to know Your Will for my life and to be obedient to You. Do not let anything Lord interfere with Your destiny for my life. I know You have a great plan for me – help me to find it. I praise You Lord for the comfort that You bring just by listening to me. Always remind me Lord that when I am in need to just ask You, Lord and it will be received if I only believe (Matthew 21:21-23.

In Jesus Name I pray.

Amen.

Prayer for Teens:

I am step mother, foster mother, and biological mother and the one thing that I wanted to pass on to my children is prayer.

When I was younger, some mornings I would wake up before the sun kissed the sky, tip into the dark living room and catch my mother with her tattered bible praying for our household. Her prayer were meek.. whispered..but powerful. Her words seemed to run from room to room giving the sun permission to come through the window and bless each person sleeping with a smile.

I believe it was my mother’s and fathers prayers which carried me through my entire life. Below I have shared a prayer specifically for teens. Teens are in an in-between place where they are realizing their power on this earth but still requiring the supervision from adults. They are finding their way and need our prayers. Never stop kneeling, just like our mothers, fathers and grandmothers prayed for us… we need to pray for our teens as well.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus, I affirm Your Word over my child/children. I commit ___________, my child/children; to You and affirm Your Word over them from Isaiah 54:13 that tells me my children shall be taught by the Lord and great shall be the peace of my children. I thank You that You deliver ____, ____out of rebellion into right relationship with us, his/her parents. In Exodus 20:12, Your Word teaches us that the first commandment given with a promise is to the child who obeys his/her parents in the Lord.

Father, you said in Deuteronomy 5:16 that all will be well with my child/children and ____, _____will live long on the earth. I affirm this promise on behalf of my child/children, asking You to give ____, ______, an obedient spirit that he/she may honor his/her father and mother. Father forgive me for mistakes made out of my own hurts or selfishness, which may have caused __________ hurt. I ask full and true repentance for the mistakes I have made in raising my children. I release the anointing that is upon Jesus to bind up and heal our broken hearts and the broken hearts of our children. Give us the ability to understand and forgive one another as God has forgiven us. Thank You for the Holy Spirit Who leads us into all truth and corrects any wrong perceptions about past or present situations. Thank You for teaching us to listen to each other and giving _____, _____ an ear that hears admonition, for then he/she will be called wise. I affirm that I will speak kind, excellent and Godly things and that any words coming out of my mouth will be the right words and will be used for Your glory Lord Jesus (Colossians 3:21).

Father, I promise to train and teach ____, ______ in the way that he/she is to go, and when ____, ______ is old he/she will not depart from You Lord but will follow You all the days of his/her life. In the Name of Jesus, I command the spirit of rebellion to be far from the heart of my child and confess that he/she is willing and obedient, free to enjoy the reward of Your promises. I ask that ______, ____ shall be peaceful, and a blessing to others. Father, according to Your Word we have been given the ministry of reconciliation, and I release this ministry and the word of reconciliation into this family. I refuse to provoke or irritate or belittle my child; I will not be hard on _____, _____or require perfection lest he/she becomes discouraged, feeling inferior and frustrated. I will not break his/her spirit, in the Name of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Father, I forgive my child for the wrongs he/she has done and stand in the gap until he/she begins to understand Your love and Your grace causing them to come out of the spirit of rebellion which is the snare of the enemy (Ephesians 6:1-3). We should not abandon hope in Your love and commitment to all Your creation. We know You Jesus, died for our children, even before they were born. Although It may seem to us that our children’s journey into selfishness, self-destruction and the world is never-ending, God we know You are at work in our children’s lives in ways we may never understand.

We ask you, Heavenly Father, for a quiet assurance that this process of conversion will take place and the inner peace that only You, Lord Jesus can give us, will now manifest in our lives, in the Name of Jesus. Help us to be strong like Mary, the mother of Jesus, as she wept and felt deep pain as she witnessed her Son’s journey knowing God’s plan; as You knew Your plans for our children, even before they were born (Jeremiah 1:2). Help us O Lord, to know and understand that we must let God control difficult situations and always be mindful to trust You. Heavenly Father help us to remember always that our children have belonged to you from the beginning. Help us Lord to understand that we are here to nurture them and guide them in Your ways while they are in our care. Lord, we have been mindful to raise them up in the way they should go, having made some mistakes of the flesh as we are not 8 perfects. We did what we thought was right at the time and we know that you, Lord, know our heart and honor that effort. It is so difficult, Lord, to understand them and to be the way they would like us to be. Even though it is difficult to understand we continue giving Glory to You and put our complete trust and expectancy in Your Word.

Thank You for reconciling the heart of our rebellious child back to us and our hearts back to our child. We declare the power of the enemy over our children, null and void according to (Psalms 55:12-14).

 Thank You Lord, for our child/children ____, _____ and for holding each one of them in Your loving hands. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen
