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.

“Let us not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don’t give up.

— Galatians 6:9

REMINDER: Nothing is harder than being a parent, but nothing is worth more. As we are parenting, we will become weary. There will be times when doing the right thing will feel like it’s too hard. It will seem easier sometimes to give in. If your child is at an age where they have walked away from their faith or they are making choices that you know are going to hurt them, you may feel tired. The constant friction or feeling like you must walk on eggshells. This scripture reminds us that we will feel weary and there will be days when we want to give up. But this scripture also holds a promise for a future that will be worth it someday.


–  Ask the Lord for rest.

–  Ask the Lord to help remind you of His promises for a better future.

–  Ask the Lord for strength and for wisdom in areas of your life that you are living on your own strength.

–  Thank Jesus for your kids and for His love for them.
