Today, we continue with our “Prayers for Parents” series. As school begins, parents may have some concerns and fears about your children beginning or returning to school. Always remember you are not alone! God is with you in every circumstance and KiDSCOR is present to partner with you on this parenting journey! Feel free to use one of these prayers as a beginning place for your own conversations with God.
Dear God, I pray my child would find all of his/her strength in You. Thank you for being so faithful to my child and our family. Thank you for celebrating with us in our joys and holding us up through our struggles. Please help my child be willing to stand up for others when they see injustice or harm being done. Help my child to always have a spirit of love and hope and to remember that nothing is impossible with You. In Jesus, name I pray, Amen.
(Based on Philippians 4:13)
Dear God, thank You for blessing our child in so many ways. Please give our child eyes to see Your love and people in need. Help him/her to have ears to listen to You and to the cries of others. Please give our child hands to raise to You in prayer and to serve others. Please help our child use his/her feet to follow You and guide others in Your ways. Thank You for loving our child even more than we do—which we can hardly imagine, but we believe is true. We praise You, God. In Christ’s name, Amen.
