Prayer

16 Feb

From Stormie Ormartian’s book, Power of a Praying Parent: Book of Prayers (adding my son’s name; please add your child’s name in it’s place):

Lord, I pray that You would give Stephen a heart that desires to obey You. Put into him a longing to spend time with You, in Your Word and in prayer, listening to Your voice. Shine Your light upon any secret or unseen rebellion that is taking root in his heart, so that it can be identified and destroyed.

Lord, I pray that he will not give himself over to pride, selfishness, and rebellion, but that he will be delivered from it. By the authority You’ve given me in Jesus’ name, I “stand against the wiles of the devil” and I resist idolatry, rebellion, stubbornness, lying, and disrespect; they will have no part in my son’s life, nor will my child walk a path of destruction and death because of them.

“The eye that mocks his father, and scorns obedience to his mother, the ravens of the valley will pick out and the young eagles will eat it.” ~Proverbs 30:17

      I’ve been dealing with some issues with my son lately, so when I ran across that, I had to post it. In fact, I printed it up too to post in my view daily.

    That’s powerful stuff. (No pun intended but joyfully acknowledged.)

    I pray for my girls daily, but this definitely steps it up. I’ll make it my own. Thanks for sharing something that has the ultimate value.

      I’ve prayed for Stephen too, but then I realized while going through this junk that we are lately, that I need to pray more specifically for him, you know?
