Prayer for Adult Children
Father, in the name of Jesus, I bring my adult children before the Throne of Grace. First of all, I ask you to forgive us for the times I have prayed for them with selfish motives, and hindered your answers to prayer. Forgive me for my self-righteous attitude. It was not too long ago that we were mired in that old stagnant life of sin but you embraced us with immense mercy and with your incredible love.
O, LORD, remember Your covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. According to Your covenant Your Spirit is upon me, and Your words, which You have put in my mouth, shall not depart from my mouth, or the mouth of my descendants nor from the mouth of my descendants’ descendants from this time forth and forevermore. I put on Your full armor and having done all to stand, I stand on behalf of my families. Fearlessly I enforce the triumphant victory of our Lord Jesus Christ against Satan and his destructive strategies. I am here to build up the wall and stand in the gap before You, Father, asking for Your mercy to triumph over judgment, in Jesus name, Amen.
Lord, in Jesus name, you are great and awesome, and I fight for our sons, our daughters, our spouses and our houses. On the authority of Your promise I declare that You will contend with him who contends with us, and You will give safety to my children, save them and ease them day by day. You are our LORD, our Savior, our Redeemer, and the Mighty One of Jacob. I proclaim our children as a heritage and a reward from You.
I ask You in Jesus name, Father, draw them to repentance with Your goodness, and give them as an inheritance in the Lord Jesus Christ. He shed his blood for them that they might be saved, and Your arm is not shortened that You cannot save. Holy Spirit, I ask You to convince and convict them of sin, righteousness and judgment. May our sons and daughters repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and they will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
In Jesus name, according to Your promise we are asking You to pour Your Spirit and Your blessings on our children. Our sons and daughters shall prophesy; our young men shall see visions. Create in them a love for Your Word. Lord, thank you for choosing our children before the foundation of the world and calling them in their youth. Our children are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, and a holy nation. They are Your own special people. Father, confirm Your word and hallow Your name in the lives of our children for Your glory and honor, in Jesus Name, Amen.
