Father, You Word is true and I believe it. Therefore, in the Name of Jesus, I believe in my heart and say with my mouth that Your Word prevails over my children. Your Word says You will pour out Your Spirit upon my offspring, and Your blessing upon my descendants. I believe and say that my children are wise, they take heed to and are the fruit of godly instruction and correction. I love my children and I will diligently discipline them early. Because of that, they give me delight and rest.
Father, I take Your Word that says You contend with him who contends with me and You give safety to my children and ease them day by day. I confess that You, Lord, give Your angels special charge over my children to accompany and defend and preserve them. I believe they find favor, good understanding and high esteem in Your sight, Lord, and in the sight of man.
I confess that my children are disciples, taught of You, Lord, and obedient to Your will. Great is their peace and undisturbed composure. I believe I receive wisdom and counsel in bringing up my children in Your discipline and instruction. Your Word declares that when they are old they will not depart from it. So, I commit them into Your keeping and I know, and have confident trust, that they are watched over and blessed of You all the days of their lives, in Jesus Name.
This prayer is from “Prayer Your Foundation For Success” By Kenneth Copeland and every night my mom would pray this prayer over me. Since I am an only child, she decided to write it out on a big sheet of construction prayer and Insert my name instead of saying, Children. I remember it still just as clear, she had her nightstand, a brown crate and right above it was this prayer tacked to the wall.
I am happy and thankful to report I had a great childhood.
And just like this prayer says “when they are old they will not depart from it”, I haven’t departed nor will I ever.
Now I am praying this prayer over my daughter and maybe someday she will pray it over her children too.
Thank you, mom for praying this over me every night.
