Parents: Praying For Your Child

Power of Prayer Web Banner

Hey guys! found this on a blog called loving life at home. There will be a few more I’ll share later. But these are good things for us to think about as we pray for our children. I know I want to pray for my kids but a lot of the time it ends up being “Dear Lord, please be with Emma help her grow, etc… But this is a great guide to praying for them.

Hope this helps,
