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 5

May 16

“Nathan replied to David, “You are the man! This is what the LORD God of Israel says: ‘I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul.

— 2 Samuel 12:7

REMINDER: Take some time to read 2 Samuel 12. In this scripture, we see Nathan confront David about the sin in his life. When it comes to our kids there is no doubt the influence that their friends will play in their life. During their teen years, there are even times when their friends will have just as much influence in their lives as we do as parents. Our kid’s friendships are a big deal.


–  Pray for your children’s relationships.  Ask the Lord to provide friendships with kids that will speak the truth and help our kids make wise choices.

–  Pray for your kid’s friends’ homes that their homes are a place where the gospel is known.

–  Pray for protection that your kids will not be pressured into relationships that would harm them in any way.

–  Pray for your own friendships; that you be surrounded by peers that will speak the truth and encourage you.
