Prayer for Parents

Inspirational Prayer for Parents

that ignites the power of God.

The prayer on this page is all about spiritual growth.

This prayer reminds us that our children are watching us.

Therefore, if we want our children to grow spiritually,

we must grow spiritually.

Kirk Cameron emphasizes this idea in the short video below.

Dear Lord,

I want to be a great parent.

I realize that I need to grow spiritually and to mature as a person, so that I can show my children the best way to live in this world.

Help me to show my children that I respect your Word, so that my children will grow to respect your Word.

Help me to deepen my love for you, so that my children will know how to love you deeply.

Help me to be more teachable, so that I can show my children how to be teachable.

Help me to be a more loving and compassionate person, so that I can show my children how to be loving and compassionate.

Help me to learn to quickly forgive, so that I can show my children how to forgive.

Help me to be determined to follow through in order to finish tasks and honor commitments, so that I can show my children how to follow through in order to finish tasks and honor commitments.

Help me to say no to bad things in my life, so that I can show my children how to say no to bad things in life.

Help me to admit when I have been wrong, so that I can show my children how to admit when they have been wrong.

Renew my mind, Lord.  I will learn to think like you.

Remind me to read your Word.  I will listen to you.

I will grow in my determination to learn to act and react the right way.

I will model for my children that following you is important.

I will remember that little eyes are watching me.

Thank you, Lord, for guiding me.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Note that of course we want to act a certain way in order to honor God and because we love him.  That being said, every parent is well aware of the tremendous love we have for our children. This prayer helps us to intentionally realize how our actions affect our children. That knowledge can powerfully motivate us to change what we know we need to change.

Biblical Parenting

The Bible gives us invaluable principles for raising children. 

The one tip I'm going to highlight on this page is Deuteronomy 11:18-19 NKJV

In these verses, God tells us to weave the Bible into our life every day
and in every circumstance.

"Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart***
and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand,
and they shall be as frontlets on your eyes.
You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.

Deuteronomy 11:18-19 NKJV

*** This means the words of the Bible

Reading Bible stories to your children is a great way
to bless your children.
Even teenagers can sit with parents and take turns reading the Bible.

When a family draws closer to the Bible
a family draws closer to each other.

Note that Christian bookstores

also have great devotional books for children and teens.
