Deuteronomy 5:6,7,9,10,29  I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.  Thou shalt have none other gods before me … thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments … O that there were such a heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!

Psalms 78:1-7 Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.  I will open my mouth in a parable:  I will utter dark sayings of old;  which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.   We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and His strength, and His wonderful works that He hath done.   For He established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers, that they should lmake them known to their children:  That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born;  who should arise and declare them to their children:  That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments.

FATHER, Because faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17), I encourage faith to rise up in my heart as I speak the promises of Your Word over: (list names of children here):






Thank You for watching over Your Word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:12).  Thank You for giving Your angels charge over my children to watch over them (Psalms 91:11).  Fill me up with Your love so I can spill over and pour Your love out to each child.  Give me an ear to hear what my children are truly saying when they talk to me.  As I discipline them, may I do it firmly but not in anger.  May I lovingly honor them as human beings and not strip them of their personal dignity by embarrassment and discipline in the presence of others. 


Help me to be consistent in my standard of obedience.  May we as parents be united on matters which pertain to discipline and not expect of our children what we do not expect of ourselves. I ask for a sense of urgency to teach my children the Word of God and to “flesh” out the Word before them each day.  Make me sensitive to the responsibilities involved with each promise in Your Word. 


I ask in Jesus Name that You would send forth labourers (Matthew 9:38)* who can reach our adult children and penetrate their lives in behalf of the Kingdom of God. Thank You for being a Father Who will never leave nor forsake me (Hebrews 13:5) and who loves me with a perfect love. 


I plead the blood of Jesus over my children for protection.  Melt hardness of hearts (Mark 16:14 ) so that each of our children may yield to Your love and to Your Spirit and find You precious as their Lord and Saviour.  Make Your will and direction for their lives clear and may all of our family be a source of pleasure and glory to you.
