As parents we don’t have to be perfect. We’re human just like our children. We aren’t necessarily at fault if our home environment isn’t as idyllic as Disney World. I’m not saying that we should beat ourselves up for every imperfection. God is the one that gave us the ability and responsibility to parent, so we shouldn’t take on too much guilt and stress. That said, there are some common problems parents face that can be improved by using a powerful prayer for parents in order to set a good foundation for every child’s future. This article discusses prayer message for parents.
It is often said that the relationship between a parent and a child is the closest and most selfless in nature. When a child is sick, the parents suffer with them. When a child fails to pass an exam or does not get into the university of their choice, the parents comfort them. These gestures of love go both ways and serve as a reminder that it takes a village to raise a child. However, we as parents are often not in tune with what our children really want and even less aware of how we can be better at parenting. In this post, I will outline some powerful prayers for parents which will help you achieve that balance while raising your children so they become confident, self-reliant and responsible adults.
Praying as a parent is one of the most difficult things a person will do. There are so many responsibilities and decision to make which leaves little time for seeking God through prayer. Below is a powerful prayer that is guaranteed to bless any parent who seeks God in prayer. You’ll also see prayers for parents long life in this treatise.
Prayer is important. Prayer can change your life, help you get through tough times and help you feel closer to God.
But what happens when you’re a parent? How do you pray for your children when they are facing challenges or going through hard times?
Here are some powerful prayers that will help you as a parent:
“God, please bless my child with the wisdom to make good choices.”
“God, please protect my child from all harm.”
“God, please give my child strength to deal with their problems.”
“God, please help me be a better parent today than I was yesterday.”
Almighty God, I thank you for my parents.
They have been good to me and have taught me to be a good person. They have always been there for me when I needed them, and I love them very much.
I pray that you will protect them from all harm and keep them safe from evil people who would try to hurt them or stop them from loving me.
Help me to be a good child so that they will not be ashamed of me, but proud of all that we do together as a family!
Powerful prayer for parents
Pray for yourself, pray for your spouse and pray together.
It is important to pray for yourself, your spouse, and your children together. This is because prayer is a powerful tool in helping you raise happy, healthy children. When you are able to focus on the needs of your family with God’s help, it will help ensure that all members of the family have what they need to succeed at school and in life. Prayer can also give you comfort when facing challenges as a parent such as losing a job or dealing with a divorce from an abusive spouse. Pray for yourself so that you don’t get overwhelmed by stress related issues in life; this will allow you more time for your child without having any negative effects on them due to neglectful parenting.
If only one person prays then there won’t be enough power behind their prayers since we’re talking about powerful prayer here! We’ve got plenty of people who want answers from God but most don’t actually follow through on what needs done afterwards so make sure everyone gets involved if possible (otherwise just pray by yourself if necessary).
Pray your children will be saved.
When you pray for your children, it’s important to remember that God has a plan for each of them. They might not be saved yet and that’s okay. But by praying for them, you’re asking God to help them grow in their faith and prepare their hearts for the good news about Jesus Christ. You can also pray for their future spouse—not only will this make your child’s marriage more stable, but it will make both of them better parents!
Pray they will be filled with the Spirit.
When you pray for your children’s sanctification, you are asking God to help them become more like Him. This is one of the most important things that we can pray for our kids, because God wants His children to be holy (1 Thessalonians 4:7). As parents, we should do all that we can to help our kids understand and pursue holiness.
You can also pray for them to desire God more than anything else in life (Deuteronomy 6:5-9; Psalm 63:1). We learn about such desires from reading our Bibles, but these desires must grow over time as we spend time in Scripture and prayer with God Himself. It’s crucial that this desire grows before any other desires—such as being popular or having lots of friends—because those things won’t last forever; however, serving Jesus Christ will always be rewarding!
Pray they will understand the Bible.
As a parent, you have an opportunity to teach your children how to pray by example. You can do this by praying with and for them every day.
If your children are young, it is important to read the Bible with them and talk about what they’re learning. As they get older, help them memorize verses so that they will be able to repeat them and apply them in their lives each day.
You should also teach your child the value of studying God’s Word on their own—encourage them to read or listen to scripture on a regular basis (at least once daily) and encourage questions from those who are not familiar with the text.
As parents, we must remember that our primary goal in raising godly children is not just ensuring that they know what Scripture says but also how it applies specifically when faced with tough situations or trials in life. While some may argue against teaching kids at such an early age because they are “too young” or “don’t understand,” this could not be further from the truth!
Pray for their spiritual leaders.
Pray for their pastors, youth leaders and Sunday school teachers.
Pray that they would have the courage to speak out against sin in their midst.
Pray that they will be faithful to teach God’s Word and not rely on human wisdom or allow themselves to become distracted by peripheral issues like politics, social activism and entertainment.
Pray for their teachers.
Pray for their teachers.
Our children need to be confident in their abilities and that they are learning, not only at home but at school as well. They will be facing many challenges in the years ahead and it is important that they have a good self-image. Therefore, pray the teachers will be wise and have the wisdom to help your children reach their potential; that they will be respected and appreciated by students (elderly people often comment on this); pray for strength and stamina to keep up with the job; also pray for their safety!
Pray for their physical and mental health.
- Physical health: Pray for your child’s physical health, which includes praying for them to have a healthy lifestyle and lifestyle choices. You might pray that they choose healthier foods, get more sleep and exercise more often.
- Mental health: Pray for your child’s mental health, which includes praying for joy, peace among other fruit of the Spirit in their life. As parents, we want our children to be happy! We also want them to feel loved by us and by God—and not to feel alone in this world! So pray that God provides these things as well as protection from sickness (mental or otherwise) or accidents like fires or falls from heights so that they may grow up safely and securely in the Lord’s love.
Pray for their future spouse(s).
Pray for your children’s future spouse. Whether they’re young adults, in their late teens or early 20s, or even if they’re older and may already have been married and divorced, pray that God will bring them to the right person at the right time. Pray that this person will be a godly example who honors God by how they treat your child and how they raise any children the two of them might have together.
Pray for their future spouse(s) to be a godly parent. Even if your daughter has already married her husband and is expecting their first child—or if she hasn’t yet gotten pregnant but you know she plans to do so soon—pray for his ability as a father. Ask God for him to be patient when it comes time for discipline; ask Him also for wisdom about what discipline methods are most effective with each child at each stage in his or her development as well (yes, there can be differences between boys’ temperaments versus girls’. And no two toddlers are exactly alike!)
Pray also that your son’s wife will be an exemplary mother-in-law who respects you enough to seek advice from you on parenting issues when needed while still trusting her own instincts about those situations too
Pray for perseverance in your own faith life
- Spend time in prayer, asking God to give you the strength to resist temptation and follow his word.
- Ask God to give you joy and peace as you persevere in your faith.
- Pray for forgiveness when you fail at this, knowing that ultimately only God can give true forgiveness.
With prayer, you can have confidence to parent with love and trust God with the outcome

How to pray?
Prayer is talking to God. It’s a conversation between you and Him. You can pray anytime, anywhere—in the morning when you wake up, after work or school, at bedtime and whenever else comes up in your day (and night). Some people have brief prayers that last only seconds; others prefer more elaborate expressions of their faith. The important thing is that when you speak to God, be honest about how He makes you feel at different times of day or in different situations. What do you want right now? Ask Him for wisdom on a problem that concerns one of your children? Tell Him thank-you for all He has done for your family? Receive His forgiveness if there’s something troubling him/herself over? Whatever it is – share it with Him!
When should I listen for an answer from God through prayer?
God wants us all to seek His guidance daily because we cannot make decisions without Him! Asking “what would Jesus do?” helps me find peace when dealing with tough parental tasks! When dealing with our kids’ behavior problems or caring about their safety issues – we need help from above!!
Prayer Message For Parents
I ask you, Lord God, to be the healing balm of Gilead for my parents’ illness. I pray that you will bless my mom and dad with long lives and full prosperity because I know that this is your plan for them. Please grant my parents long lives filled with health, happiness, and the absence of evil doing. Please restore their youthful vitality and empower them to fulfill your will for them as they age in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Prayers For Parents Long Life
I’m thankful my mom put her faith in You years ago, but I know there are lots of people like me who have older relatives who haven’t yet come to know the Lord. Please, Lord, draw them to You and change their hearts (Ephesians 2:8-9; 2 Timothy 1:9; 2 Peter 3:9).
I ask that You recall to the mind of my family and friends the countless times, often dating back to childhood, that You have been their source of comfort and strength (Psalm 62:5; 71:5; 121:2).
Please accept my gratitude for the many ways in which You have used my parent to influence my early life. Just look at this wonderful present! My mom and dad taught me how to trust You in the real world, and they set a good example. My parents weren’t perfect, but I always felt like they wanted me to turn out okay, and I’m grateful that they supported my decision to become a Christian.
The tables have turned, so to speak. With this opportunity, I may be of service to someone I care about and help them remember the loving care they receive from You as their shepherd. Please give me the virtues of patience, wisdom, and empathy. Please assist me in continuing to honor and appreciate my loved one as You, in Your Providence, made them (Exodus 20:12)
In the end, I trust that Your love for my mom and dad is greater than anything I could give them on their own, because all good things ultimately originate from You (James 1:17).
