Praying the Scriptures for your Children: Loving God's Word

Praying for your Child to Love God's Word
Principle: Praying for your children to know, love, and use God's word is one of the most effective ways to pray for their spiritual protection.

Heavenly Father...

Let ____ keep Your words and store up Your commands so that she will live. Cause her to guard Your teachings as the apple of her eye, and let them be written on the tablet of her heart. Proverbs 7: 2-3

Show _____ that Your way is perfect and Your word is flawless. Be her shield as she takes refuge in you. 2 Samuel 22:31

Let ____'s heart be good soil, that she might hear Your word, retain it, and persevere to produce a crop of godly character and effectiveness for Your kingdom. Don't let Satan snatch Your word from ____ 's heart, and don't let the worries, riches, or pleasures of this life choke Your word and make it unfruitful in her life. Let her roots go down deep, so she can stand firm in times of testing. Luke 8:11-15

Do not let ____ merely listen to the Word, and so deceive herself. Let her do what it says. James 1:22

May ____ not live on bread alone, but on every Word that comes from the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4
