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.

“Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God—who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly—and it will be given to him.

—  James 1:5

REMINDER: Parenting in general can be pretty confusing. There will be times when there does not seem like any good answer and there will be times when any answer seems right. Parenting is humbling and it should bring us to our knees seeking Jesus. This can be compounded even more if your child ever walks away from the Lord. You may wonder should I show grace or tough love. How do I reply with truth in love when I am angry or scared? This scripture is a good reminder of who we need to be seeking and why. Who? God because He knows all and is in love with us. Why? Because like any good parent, He gives generously and maybe more importantly without guilting us.


–  Thank God for how good He is and how He gives generously.

–  Thank God for His wisdom.

–  Ask the Lord for His guidance and wisdom when you don’t know what to do or say.
