Join me over at Club31 Women as we discuss ways to pray for our children.
As a child I prayed the same prayer every night.
You might know it, and maybe you prayed this as well.
“Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake I pray the Lord my soul to take.”
Then came the creepy part about the 3 little angels around my head.
“Three little angels around my head, one to watch, one to pray, and one to carry my soul away.”
I didn’t give this prayer much thought. I had said it so many times that the words came without them meaning much to me.
Now I have children of my own and every night we tuck them into bed, answer questions, get drinks, give kisses and, we pray with them. This is important because we want our children to know that we love them, that God is in control, and that we are forever dependent on Him for life now and in eternity.
What are some things that we can pray over our children? How can we intercede for them before the throne of grace?
I find Psalm 28 to be a helpful guide in praying for my children.
