Children’s Prayer for Leaders & Nation

1 Timothy 2:1 – 2 (TPT) – Most of all, I’m writing to encourage you to pray with gratitude to God. Pray for all men with all forms of prayers and requests as you intercede with intense passion. 2 And pray for every political leader and representative, so that we would be able to live tranquil, undisturbed lives, as we worship the awe-inspiring God with pure hearts. 

Proverbs 21:1 (TPT) – It’s as easy for God to steer a king’s heart for his purposes as it is for him to direct the course of a stream.

Job 12:23 (AMP) – “He makes nations great, and He destroys them; He enlarges nations, and leads them away [captive].

 

Heavenly Father,

I pray for our leaders, to hear and obey your voice;

Concerning our nation, so they’d make the right choice…

To honor You alone; and work in unity,

So the people can experience a time of jubilee.

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

God’s Dependable Word

Yesterday, I had loaded the kids into the car to take them to swim lessons. Well, my car didn’t move. The wheels spun around and around. I sat there and prayed. I then got out  and looked under the tires; only to discover that there was a sheet of ice under them. I  put sand under the tires; then got back in, to try and pull off. Nothing! The wheels continued to spin. After about 20 minutes of trying to figure out how to get this car to move, I asked the Holy Spirit. What do I do? I heard:” Speak to it.” I got out of the car. I pointed to my car and said: “In the name of Yeshua, I command you to back out gently.” I sat back in the car and waited a few minutes.  I then put the car in reverse and pressed the gas. Nothing happened. I just started praising God; because I knew I heard His voice; and that the enemy was trying to bring doubt. I gently pressed on the gas; and the car went in reverse; and I was able to get the kids to swim lessons.

The previous night, I had been meditating on Mark 11:23 (NIV) – “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.” An opportunity presented itself for me to apply the very thing that I’d been meditating on the night before. At that moment, that situation was a mountain to me. My husband wasn’t home; and neither was my very helpful neighbor. I just praise God for His wisdom and the trustworthiness of His word!

A Children’s Prayer of Praise & Thanksgiving

Psalm 100:4 -5 (TPT)  – You can pass through his open gates with the password of praise. Come right into his presence with thanksgiving. Come bring your thank offering to Him and affectionately bless His beautiful name! 5 For the Lord is always good and ready to receive you. He’s so loving that it will amaze you— so kind that it will astound you! And He is famous for His faithfulness toward all. Everyone knows our God can be trusted, for He keeps His promises to every generation!

Father,

It’s my honor and pleasure to give you praise,

The Almighty, Omnipotent, Ancient of Days.

You are the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end,

The Omniscient One who created the seas and the wind.

I thank you O Lord, for Your mercy and grace,

And for being with me, know matter what I face.

Your word (2 Corinthians 2:14) says You always cause me to win,

You’re the One on whom, I can always depend.

Thank you O Lord for all that You’ve done;

And for the ultimate sacrifice of Your son.

I love You and need you more than air,

And I thank you precious Father, for always being there.

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

A Children’s Prayer of Forgiveness

Mark 11:25 (NKJV)And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.

Matthew 5:44 -45 (TPT)However, I say to you, love your enemy, bless the one who curses you, do something wonderful for the one who hates you, and respond to the very ones who persecute you by praying for them. 45 For that will reveal your identity as children of your heavenly Father. He is kind to all by bringing the sunrise to warm and rainfall to refresh whether a person does what is good or evil. 

Lord,

I forgive myself and all who have hurt me.

I receive your forgiveness, grace and mercy.

Bless my enemies;

and help them turn from their wicked ways,

So that they can come into Your kingdom

and give you all the praise.

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

Children’s Prayer of Salvation

A couple weeks ago both my 6 and 7 year youngs told me that they wanted Yeshua (Jesus) to come and live in their hearts. I lead them in the following prayer:

Heavenly Father,

Acts 16:31 says to believe on the Lord Yeshua, and I will be saved.

Today I’m making the decision to walk by faith.

I repent of iniquities, trangressions and sin,

I now invite You, to come on in.

Yeshua come into my heart, live in and through me;

So that I can be all, that You’ve created me to be.

I’m now all Yours; and there’s no doubt, You are now in; and the devil is out!

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen!

If you have children, please feel free to share this poem with them. I actually wrote it; and about 7 others last month when I thought about the faithless prayer that I prayed as a young kid. It is my heart’s desire to teach my children and others (especially children), how to pray according to the word of God….or effectual and fervent prayers. When I was a kid, I remember my siblings and I praying: “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.” The problem with this prayer is that it’s inconsistent with what the word of God says. Isaiah 26:3 (CSB) says: You will keep in perfect peace the mind [that is] dependent [on You], for it is trusting in You. Remember that our souls are made up of our minds, will and emotions): so He has us covered.  In Psalm 91:16, God declares that He will reward His followers with long lifePsalm 118:17 says that we shall live and not die. The infamous prayer/poem mentioned above sounds good; but it’s full of unbelief and therefore, ineffective.

It is my sincere hope that all parents teach their children how to pray effectively. I will be sharing additional short prayers/poems that are aligned with the Word of God. Please feel free to share them with the children in your life. As always, have an EXCELLENT week and I’ll see you around the blogisphere!

 

Super Song Sunday

I’ve made it my business and delight to consistently pray for our nation, the president and our leaders. I realize that our  nation is dealing with birth pangs. God is about to birth something new; and He needs our faith to to declare His word,  in order to bring about His will in the earth.  No matter what it looks like right now, I truly believe that by declaring God’s word over this nation, will bring us back into divine alignment with the plans and purposes that God has for the U.S; as well as, bring about a harvest of souls into His kingdom. Who else is praying for the hearts of the people in our nation; as well as for our leaders? Below is a video with lyrics of the song “Standing” by William McDowell. I fully trust God that we will see what we are praying for. Have an EXCELLENT Sunday everyone; and go after the presence of God!
