Prayer For Children’s Future

God is in control of your child’s life and future. Every child born has the potential to reach many people for God. They may be indirectly used by God to change an entire country or a generation, or they could be a known martyr that converts to Christ while they are being burned by a fire. No matter what, have faith in God and his kingdom because he knows what he is doing. Through prayer ask him to give you a great view of his plan for your child’s life. This article discuses short prayers for children.

The gift of a child is one of God’s greatest blessings. It’s possible that as parents, we do a lot for our children every day, including loving them, caring for them, nurturing them, teaching them, training them, helping them, leading them, equipping them, encouraging them, protecting them, and so much more. Time is precious, and we waste a lot of it on mundane things like helping with homework and chauffeuring kids around. To help them develop and become all that they can be, we pay for them to participate in sports, lessons, and other classes so that they can find and pursue their passions. The question we must ask ourselves in the midst of our hectic schedules is whether or not we are taking time to pray for our children. Read more on prayer for children protection in this article.

Please help them to have faith in themselves and in others, so that they may flourish as adults.


I pray for a bright future for my children.

I pray that they find their passion, whatever that may be. I pray that they are able to follow their dreams and do the things they love. I pray that they have the courage to stand up for themselves and speak their truth. I pray that they can reach out to others and make a difference in this world.

I pray that they are able to find happiness within themselves, so that when difficulties arise in life, they can rely on themselves instead of others for support and comfort.

I pray that my children will always be safe and protected from harm, both physically and emotionally; I pray that they know how loved they are by all of us here on Earth as well as by God himself up in Heaven above!
