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.

“So he got up and went to his father. But while the son was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion. He ran, threw his arms around his neck, and kissed him.

— Luke 15:20

REMINDER: Our kid’s view of a heavenly Father will always be connected to their earthly Father. In this scripture, we see that the father of the son, who had left his home to live his life the way he wanted, was on the lookout for his child and when his child came home, he was filled with compassion. It is a good reminder for us to fight against knee-jerk reactions and quick words that wound. Our responsibility of being the image of Christ to our kids is a big one.


–  Thank Jesus that His love is always running after us.

–  Ask Jesus for the strength to run after our kids even when we are tired, confused or hurt.

–  Pray for grace and strength as you reflect the Heavenly Father to your kids.
