please saturate my children with a passionate desire
 to pursue You, Your Word, Your Will, and holiness...
Grant us clean hands and a pure heart (Ps. 24:4)...
That our children live pure and holy lives before God and the watching world...
Please pour out Your Spirit on these children,
Your blessings on our offspring,
saturate them with Your Presence, Power, and Love (Is. 44:3)...
May our family always reflect the love of Christ
and communicate the truth with great boldness and love...
Special anointing - that their words be seasoned with splendor... That their mouths be filled with praise...
That they always communicate the Truth with great boldness and love... Special anointing - that their words be seasoned with splendor... That their mouths be filled with praise...
With our sex-charged culture, we must be very careful not to dress our children or allow them to dress so that they entice those who are sexually active. An innocent young prince or princess cannot understand what arouses sensual spirits, so it's up to us to guard and guide them.
Pray for the church - for an awareness that we have a breastplate of righteousness, meaning virtue...
May what we wear not distract from the reflection of Christ
we want others to see in our lives...
May all our clothing decisions honor You
 and not cause others to stumble...
A great shopping verse:
“Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you."
Proverbs 2:11 NIV
What a great verse to post on closet doors!
Let's teach our children to focus in prayer for coaches, dance instructors, team members, their families, and anyone involved with their activities... That their events not interfere with church or small group schedules... That all music and materials honor God... That nothing cause anyone who loves Him to stumble...
Let's teach them to pray for pastors, youth and children's ministries, all families - passion for God and His Word, health, safety, holiness, anointing, creativity, energy... Asking God to prepare every heart to receive the seed of His Word that is to be planted, including hearts throughout the world that will receive any holy seed this or any day... That God draw visitors - that they feel loved by all, experience a divine encounter with God, and that every seed planted will bear humanly immeasurable fruit...
They can pray for teachers, classmates, support staff, those designing and administering curriculum and testing, their families - not only in their schools, but since our prayers are frequently limited by our words, but our God's Power is without limit, let's encourage them to pray for schools (teachers, parents, students) throughout the world... That all pursue a relationship with God and seek His wisdom above all else... That any darkness or deception be rapidly exposed... For spiritual, mental, and physical protection...
While placing hair ribbons, we can pray,
Bind my children and grandchildren fast
to Your sovereign Will for their lives...
May they be diligent, fierce, and faithful in all their prayers...
“And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven,
and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven,
and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."
Matthew 16:19 NKJV
That their minds be protected from every attempt of the enemy of all souls to sow seeds of deception or destruction... That their thoughts be pure and holy and true... May they have the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:16...
May my children, your children, their friends and influencers
not be conformed to this world, but be transformed
by the renewing of their minds, with passionate passions for Your Word,
that by testing they may discern
Your perfect, sovereign, and holy Will (Rom. 12:2).
May their minds be protected from every seed of deception
as they call to You and You answer them,
showing them great and wonderful things
that they do not know (Jer. 33:3).
   “Let Your work appear to Your servants
and Your majesty to their children.
Let the favor of the LORD our God be upon us;
and confirm for us the work of our hands;
yes, confirm the work of our hands.”
Psalm 90:16 & 17 NASB
   May our children trust in You with all their hearts,
leaning not on their own understanding,
in all their ways acknowledging You
as You make their paths straight (Prov. 3:6)...
May they never walk in the counsel of the wicked
nor stand in the path of sinners (Ps. 1:1)...
Please make their feet like hinds' feet,
setting them on high places (Ps. 18:33)...
May they always be faithful to follow hard after You,
taking up their cross to follow,
no matter where it may ever lead (Luke 9:23)...
Instead of perfume, purchase fragrant anointing oil for your princess.
May she bear the fragrance of Christ at all times and in all places...
 Grant her a dynamic anointing that cannot be humanly measured,
requiring Your Power and Favor to change lives
and thereby change the world...
While drying off with a towel,
May our family enjoy the blessing of living as servants,
ministering to others with the same gentle attention
You gave Your disciples and even to Judas,
Your betrayer...
“Jesus…got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing,
and wrapped a towel around his waist.
After that, he poured water into a basin
and began to wash his disciples’ feet,
drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him…
‘I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master,
nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.
Now that you know these things,
you will be blessed if you do them.’”
John 13:4, 5, 15-17 NIV
