"How do we pray for our children when our words seem to run dry? How do we faithfully lift them before the Lord with confidence that our prayers match his desires for them? When we’re not sure of how to pray, God’s word enables us to stand with him and lift our children before his throne with confidence.
As a parent, I long to pray for my kids more faithfully. I long to stand in agreement with my Savior, and pray bold and powerful prayers for my kids. But sometimes I get stuck. Sometimes I can’t find the words. Paul’s words to the Colossian church offer eight spiritual truths to pray over my children.
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. (Colossians 1:9–12).." from the article: Pray Big Things for Your Little Ones
