Go Beyond At Home

28-Week Prayer Guide


Each of us as parents have undoubtedly prayed for our children.  Sometimes these prayers are a quick on the go prayer as we are driving to work and sometimes these prayers are literal times on our knees asking for our kids salvation or for them to make wise choices.  Undoubtedly all of our kids, like us, will make choices that are sinful and could turn their attention away from Jesus.  If and when our children do make a choice or choices that are not God-Honoring it is easy for us to have a knee-jerk reaction or to tell them what they should have done differently.  During these times it can be easy for us to turn all our attention to our kids acting right or behaving.  But what should the posture of our hearts when we see our kids making choices that we know are going to wound them?  I heard someone once say, “Control is an illusion”. During this week of prayer I want us examine our hearts and spend time handing control of our lives to Him, even our kids lives.

Week 11
Day 1

May 12

Simon, Simon, look out! Satan has asked to sift you like wheat. But I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And you, when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.

— Luke 22:31-32

REMINDER: Even Jesus prayed for His followers. These verses are a great reminder to us that nothing is more powerful than prayers for our kids. Whether our children are at an age where they understand what being a follower of Christ looks like or our children are at a place where they are walking away from a belief in Christ, we need to pray. Praying helps us release control over things that we cannot, it reminds us that we have a Father who loves our kids more than we do, and it reminds us that God has a plan.


–  Thank Jesus for your children and that He loves them more than you do.

–  Pray for your children’s future and for them to walk closely with Jesus.

–  Pray for wisdom, that you may be able see when the enemy is at work with his plan.

–  Pray that your children as they grow will truly understand the power of the Gospel.
