Is Your Child 100% Covered?

Can you believe it? Spring break is almost here! I don't know about you, but this year has flown by for me. As we head into the last quarter of the school year, I want to remind you of the importance of praying for your child. I know that there are many ways to do this, but the following is one of my favorites. I found this many years ago, so I don’t know who the author is, but I love it because it is an easy way to remember to pray for every aspect of your child’s life.

Praying for Your Child: From Head to Toe

  • Pray for Their Mind: Pray that your child would earnestly seek wisdom and understanding, that they would value knowledge and discernment, and that their thoughts would stay centered on the truth of God’s Word. (Proverbs 3:21, James 1:5 and Psalm 119:97)
  • Pray for Their Eyes: Ask God to guard your child’s eyes and protect their innocence. Pray that they would focus their attention on doing what is right. (Romans 16:19 and Proverbs 4:25)
  • Pray for Their Ears: Pray that your children would be quick to hear and that they would incline their ears to listen to instruction. (James 1:19, Isaiah 55:3 and Proverbs 8:32-34)
  • Pray for Their Mouth: Ask God to keep their tongues from evil and their lips from speaking lies. Pray that all their words would be pleasing to Him and edifying to others. (Psalm 34:13 and 19:14)
  • Pray for Their Hearts: Ask God to give your child a happy, cheerful heart. Pray that they’d come to faith early and would trust easily and completely in Him. (Proverbs 15:13 and Psalm 28:7)  
  • Pray for Their Hands: Pray that they would be diligent in their work and that their hands would not be idle, but that God would bless, confirm and establish the work of their hands. (Ecclesiastes 9:10 and 11:6, and Proverbs 10:4-5)
  • Pray for Their Legs: Pray that your child would not walk in step with the wicked nor stand in the way of sinners, but that they’d find wise and godly companions along life’s journey. (Psalm 1:1)
  • Pray for Their Feet: Ask God to direct their steps, to help them stand fast, and to protect them from stumbling. (Psalm 17:5, 37:23-24, 121:3 and 119:133
