A Prayer that Your Child will Walk in Obedience
Father, I pray You would incline my children’s hearts toward obedience. Give them a desire to love You and want to serve You, following Your will in everything they do.
Father, Your Word encourages us to be obedient and respectful to authority. Give my children hearts that are willing to obey their parents, teachers, mentors, law enforcement, governments, and the like, while still upholding Your Word as supreme authority in their lives.
Father, I pray You would guide honorable influences into my children’s lives, giving them solid examples of right standing to fashion their lives after. Give my children wisdom in knowing when someone or something may be misleading them. Help them look intently into Your perfect law so they may not be misguided by other people. Make them recipients of Your warnings and courageous followers of Your nudges. After they have proven obedience, Father, I pray You would bless them in mighty ways. May they spend their days in prosperity and their years in contentment (Job 36:11-12).
Again I pray Lord that You would impress upon my children a heart for obedience. Test them to find out whether they love You with all their hearts and souls. Help them understand that it is You they must follow and revere. Then help them walk boldly in Your commands, serving You and holding fast to You (Deuteronomy 13:4-5) so they may experience the blessings You have for them. Withhold no good thing from them for the honorable ways they conduct their lives. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
