July 10: A Prayer of Protection for Our Children and Youth

Righteous Father, we are so grateful that You are all-seeing and all-knowing. You have Your eye on each and every person on this earth, including our children and youth. Thank You for faithfully watching over them every day. We thank You for keeping Your angels stationed around them day and night. Thank You, Lord, for guarding their lives in the face of seen and unseen dangers. Father, we give You glory. You are in Your holy Temple, yet You still rule from heaven. You watch everyone closely, examining every person on earth. We lift our hands and worship You, for You Yourself watch over our children and youth. You stand beside them as their protective shade.  All praises to You, our Father and our God!

Awesome Father, when our children and youth are at home, You are there. When they are in school, You are there. Wherever they go, You are there. We believe in the power of Your Word, so we commit ourselves to declaring blessings over our children and youth every day. In the Name of Jesus, we rebuke every foul plot of the enemy to harass, bully, injure, harm, or kidnap our children and youth. The blood of Jesus covers them and guards their steps. We declare that our children and youth live in the shelter of the Most High, and they find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. You alone are their refuge and their place of safety. You are their God, and they trust You. Lord, we expect You to rescue them from every trap (drugs, alcohol, crime, and abuse), and protect them from deadly disease. You promised that You will cover them with Your feathers. You will shelter them with Your wings. These promises are their armor and their protection.

List the names of any children and youth who are or may be in danger and pray for them. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you how you can be of help:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, teach us all how valuable our children and youth are to the Father. Help parents to act responsibly when it comes to the welfare of their children. Keep them from being distracted by work, bills, relationships, and other issues. Help them to be open to correction and instruction if they are lacking in good, balanced parenting skills. Lord, help us all to be shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves in the handling of our children and youth.  Give us the courage to take action when we see warning signs of impending danger around them. Help us to come together in our communities to cover those children who are runaways and castaways.  Encourage these children to come to know the love of the Father and to trust in Him to get them to safety and to people who will care for them.

Blessed Father, forgive us for our sins, especially those we have committed against our children and youth. Forgive those who discourage and demean our children and youth.  Forgive those who refuse to do their part to protect our children and youth.  Forgive those parents and guardians who refuse to seek help for their children when they are spiraling out of control. Forgive those in the Church who judge and ostracize our children and youth instead of seeking to understand them and showing them love. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us of all those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show You names or faces of people that You may need to forgive. As He shows You, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in Your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Magnificent Father, no one is holy like You! There is no one besides You. There is no rock like our God. You are the Lord, the Mighty One, who has spoken and summoned all humanity from where the sun rises to where it sets. From Mount Zion, the perfection of beauty, You shine in glorious radiance. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

June 6: A Prayer of Favor and Protection for The KBC Kenya

Heavenly Father, we thank You for The Kingdom Builders’ Children Center Kenya. Thank You for Pastor Velosia and Daniel Kibe and their volunteers and staff. We thank You, Father, for providing food, clothing and shelter for each child. Thank You for the financial resources for the orphanage.  We give thanks to You, Lord, and proclaim Your greatness. As Your grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving and You will receive more and more glory!  Redeeming Father, we will let the whole world know what You have done.  May the nations praise You, O God. Yes, may all the nations praise You.

Worthy Father, we come before You confessing continual success for The Kingdom Builders’ Children Center (Children Center) Kenya.  Your Word tells us that pure and genuine religion in Your sight means caring for orphans in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt us. We will assist the poor in their need and the orphans who require help. We command justice to operate for each child in the orphanage and we destroy the assignments of oppression and devastation.  As Your people, we will uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute. We decree that the children at the Children Center are being well-cared-for and protected. We declare that the spirit of excellence that was upon Daniel, Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego presides upon each child in the Children Center.  In Jesus’ Name, we decree that The Kingdom Builders’ Children Center Kenya is well maintained and managed.

Holy Spirit, touch the hearts of people to continue to give generously of their financial resources to aid in the expansion of the building projects so that more children can be served.  Open doors of opportunity for more missions team to go and serve on the Children Center campus.  Lead the people of Kenya who are blessed with skills in construction to volunteer their time and service to the residential housing, agricultural, and library projects. Holy Spirit, touch the heart of the local medical personnel to give of their time and expertise to provide medical services to the children. Send anointed teachers who will inspire each child to fully develop the gifts and talents You have created in each of them.

Holy Spirit, show me how I can pray for and be a blessing to The KBC Kenya:

_________________________________________________________________________

Righteous Father, please forgive our sins. Forgive us for not praying consistently for the Children Center. Forgive the sins of those involved with The Kingdom Builders’ Children Center Kenya. Forgive any staff member at the Children Center for any mismanagement of time or resources.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind those involved with The Kingdom Builders’ Children Center Kenya of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive.  (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, remind those involved with The Kingdom Builders’ Children Center Kenya to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Sovereign Lord, You alone stretched out the sky like a canopy and laid the foundations of the earth.  You stir up the sea, causing its waves to roar.  The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is Your Name!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

May 30: A Prayer for Wives Who are Desiring To Get Pregnant

Our Father, we thank You for the blessing of children and family. Thank You for each wife who stands in faithful expectancy of a child to hold in her arms. Thank You for Your creative power which is able to open closed wombs and cause them to thrive with new life. We will praise You, Lord, with all our hearts. We will tell of all the marvelous things You have done. We will be filled with joy because of You, and we will sing praises to Your Name, O Most High. May Your glorious Name be praised! May it be exalted above all blessing and praise!

 

Exalted Father, we believe that just as You were attentive to Hannah’s pleas for help, You hear the cries of every wife who longs to become a mother. We, the Body of Christ, declare that their prayers will not go unanswered, for You promised that You would withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. We confess that these wives will not grow weary and lose hope. In Jesus Name, we declare that bodies of each husband and wife in the Body of Christ are whole and complete, lacking nothing. We confess that they have victory over doubt, fear, and unbelief. We believe that You will connect them with those people who will love and support them as they trust You for children of their own. We decree that they will be parents who are full of wisdom and patience. They will train their children up in the way they should go, and when their children are old they will not depart from it. These expectant couples will do all they can to nurture their marriages so that the atmosphere of their home will be ready to receive children into a loving, peaceful environment.

 

List the names of any wives you know who desire to have a child and pray for them by name today:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, we ask that You would prompt the wives who are desiring to get pregnant to disconnect from any negative influences in their lives. Lead them to develop strong, healthy relationships with faith-filled believers who will stand in agreement with them and their husbands. Teach them how to take care of themselves physically, mentally and spiritually. Help them to rest and trust in the Father’s perfect timing. Keep them from becoming envious of others who have already conceived a child. Heal their hearts and deliver them from any guilt or shame they may be feeling. Help their husbands to show compassion and be patient and understanding toward them as they wait to conceive. Once they do conceive, strengthen them against the temptation to worship or overindulge their children. May they always be thankful and give glory to God, keeping Him first in their lives.

 

Loving Father, forgive the wives who desire to get pregnant of any known or unknown acts of disobedience. Forgive the wives and husbands for any past sins they may have committed. Forgive them for holding unforgiveness in their hearts toward others. Forgive them for giving in to frustration, anger, or outbursts of wrath. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind the wives and husbands of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.

As He shows You, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in Your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help the wives and husbands who desire to get pregnant to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Sovereign Lord, You are the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for You? You are mighty, but You do not despise anyone. You are mighty in both power and understanding. You are greater than we can understand. Your years cannot be counted. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

May 3: A Prayer for Students Taking Final Exams

Majestic Father, we thank You for our students who are preparing for Final Exams. Thank You for crowning each of them with wisdom and honor. Thank You for the educators who have a genuine interest in seeing our children and youth succeed. O God, You are our God; we earnestly search for You.  Our souls thirst for You; our bodies long for You in this parched and weary land where there is no water.  We have seen You in Your sanctuary and gazed upon Your power and glory.  Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how we praise You!  We will praise You as long as we live.  We will lift up our hands to You in prayer.  You satisfy us more than the richest feast.  With songs of joy will we praise You.

Royal Father, we confess that our students are well versed in every area of learning; gifted with knowledge and good judgment. We declare that just as You anointed Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego with an unusual aptitude for understanding every aspect of literature and wisdom, that You will anoint our students to excel in their academics and to conquer their Final Exams. We decree that our students understand the value of knowledge; they understand that wisdom is more profitable than silver and her wages are better than gold.  We confess that they will not be anxious about these tests, but they will pray and tell You what they need. They will thank You for all that You have done for them; then they will experience Your peace which exceeds anything they can understand. We declare that our students can do everything through Christ, including excelling on these Final Exams, because You give them strength.  We expect that as they study and apply themselves to their academics, that Holy Spirit, You will bring all things to their remembrance when they sit down to begin their Final Exams.  We decree that our students are the head and not the tail; they will always be on top and will never be at the bottom academically.

Holy Spirit, please help our students to hunger and thirst after knowledge.  Help them to shed every false label, expectation and preconceived notion that society has placed upon them. Help them to see themselves as more than conquerors in every aspect of their lives. Holy Spirit, please help our parents and guardians to understand how important it is for them to have an active role in their child’s education. Show them how to partner with their student’s teachers to encourage and help their child to learn. Lead and guide our students to scholarship and grant opportunities to help pay for their educational expenses. Please open new revenue streams for those parents who are sending their children to college.

Loving Father, forgive the sins of our educators and students.  Forgive us, as parents and guardians, for being negligent in teaching our students to first reverence You which is the beginning of wisdom.  Forgive those of us for sacrificing our students to excessive television, video games, music and to the ways and customs of the world.  Forgive those for devaluing the worth of teachers and education.  Forgive us all for not being more insistent on quality education in our school systems.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our students of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help our students to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Awesome Lord, Your right hand is glorious in power.  Your right hand smashes the enemy.  In the greatness of Your majesty, You overthrow those who rise against You.  You unleash Your blazing fury; it consumes them like straw. Who is like You among the gods, glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, performing great wonders?  You are God alone!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

March 10: A Prayer for Healthy Pregnancies and Healthy Babies

Gracious Father, we thank You for being the source of life.  Thank You for every expectant mother in our congregation.  Thank You for every child that has been born.  Father, we praise You.  We, who serve in Your house, praise You.  Lord, You are good; we celebrate Your lovely Name with music.  We know Your greatness, Lord; You are greater than any other god.  You do whatever pleases You throughout all heaven and earth, and on the seas and in the depths.  We sing praises to Your Name.  Every day we proclaim the good news that You save!

Omnipotent Father, our Creator, we declare that the children who are born are healthy and well loved. Lord, You knit them together in their mother’s womb.  We declare that each baby is wonderfully made. Your workmanship is marvelous!  You made all of their delicate, inner parts. Today, we confess that every baby in utero has exactly 46 chromosomes and they will develop without defect or deformity.  We declare that every cell, muscle, tissue and organ will develop according to Your divine purpose and plan.  We decree that mothers will carry their babies to full term. We destroy every demonic assignment against our unborn, including the assignment of premature birth. In Jesus’ Name, we proclaim that there will be no miscarriages or infertility in our congregation.  We proclaim that sickness and disease, including SIDS, autism, Down Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, juvenile diabetes, cancer, dyslexia, and all other childhood diseases or dysfunctions, have no legal right to inhabit our children because God is their Shepherd and Shield.

Holy Spirit, help me to pray strategically for the following families who are expecting a child:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, we ask You to increase Your wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in every expectant mother.  Remind them to get the proper rest and nutrition.  Lord, watch over each expectant mother and keep her body healthy.  Provide a support network of family and friends who will help them during and after their pregnancies.  Strengthen the minds, bodies and spirits of parents who have children with special needs.  Comfort and encourage those parents who have experienced a miscarriage.  For those couples who desire to have children, but have been unable to conceive, we ask that You would help them to not be anxious, but to trust You that in the ordained time and season, they will bring forth a child for Your glory.

 

Holy Father, please forgive our parents and expectant parents for any acts of sinfulness.  Forgive those who have committed fornication or adultery.  Forgive parents for stubbornness, quick tempers and lack of patience.  Forgive them for not seeking help when they are feeling anxious, depressed, fretful, angry or overwhelmed.   Forgive us for not offering more support to our parents.  Forgive us for the times when we have been insensitive to those families who have children with special needs.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help our parents not to yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Eternal God, You are greater than we can understand.  Your years cannot be counted.  You draw up the water vapor and distill it into rain.  Only You know where light comes from and where darkness goes.  You direct the movement of the stars, binding the cluster of the Pleiades and loosening the cords of Orion. Holy and triumphant is Your Name!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Keep them from being distracted by work, bills, relationships, and other issues. Help them to be open to correction and instruction if they are lacking in good, balanced parenting skills. Lord, help us all to be shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves in the handling of our children and youth.  Give us the courage to take action when we see warning signs of impending danger around them. Help us to come together in our communities to cover those children who are runaways and castaways.  Encourage these children to come to know the love of the Father and to trust in Him to get them to safety and to people who will care for them.

 

Blessed Father, forgive us for our sins, especially those we have committed against our children and youth. Forgive those who discourage and demean our children and youth.  Forgive those who refuse to do their part to protect our children and youth.  Forgive those parents and guardians who refuse to seek help for their children when they are spiraling out of control. Forgive those in the Church who judge and ostracize our children and youth instead of seeking to understand them and showing them love. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us of all those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show You names or faces of people that You may need to forgive. As He shows You, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in Your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

 

Magnificent Father, no one is holy like You! There is no one besides You. There is no rock like our God. You are the Lord, the Mighty One, who has spoken and summoned all humanity from where the sun rises to where it sets. From Mount Zion, the perfection of beauty, You shine in glorious radiance. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

February 5: A Prayer of Protection for Our Children and Youth

Righteous Father, we are so grateful that You are all-seeing and all-knowing. You have Your eye on each and every person on this earth, including our children and youth. Thank You for faithfully watching over them every day. We thank You for keeping Your angels stationed around them day and night. Thank You, Lord, for guarding their lives in the face of seen and unseen dangers. Father, we give You glory. You are in Your holy Temple, yet You still rule from heaven. You watch everyone closely, examining every person on earth. We lift our hands and worship You, for You Yourself watch over our children and youth. You stand beside them as their protective shade.  All praises to You, our Father and our God!

Awesome Father, when our children and youth are at home, You are there. When they are in school, You are there. Wherever they go, You are there. We believe in the power of Your Word, so we commit ourselves to declaring blessings over our children and youth every day. In the Name of Jesus, we rebuke every foul plot of the enemy to harass, bully, injure, harm, or kidnap our children and youth. The blood of Jesus covers them and guards their steps. We declare that our children and youth live in the shelter of the Most High, and they find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. You alone are their refuge and their place of safety. You are their God, and they trust You. Lord, we expect You to rescue them from every trap (drugs, alcohol, crime, and abuse), and protect them from deadly disease. You promised that You will cover them with Your feathers. You will shelter them with Your wings. These promises are their armor and their protection.

List the names of any children and youth who are or may be in danger and pray for them. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you how you can be of help:

Holy Spirit, teach us all how valuable our children and youth are to the Father. Help parents to act responsibly when it comes to the welfare of their children. Keep them from being distracted by work, bills, relationships, and other issues. Help them to be open to correction and instruction if they are lacking in good, balanced parenting skills. Lord, help us all to be shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves in the handling of our children and youth.  Give us the courage to take action when we see warning signs of impending danger around them. Help us to come together in our communities to cover those children who are runaways and castaways.  Encourage these children to come to know the love of the Father and to trust in Him to get them to safety and to people who will care for them.
