Using passages to prayer for a child

Welcome to the latest email about recording in Bibles to pass onto children.

When my children were little, I read about using Bible passages to prayer for your children.  Since then I've used passages to pray for my children.  Basically you use the words from the passage but change it slightly, to pray for the specific person you have in mind.

I recorded some of these prayers in the Bibles we gave our children.  A couple of examples are below.

Isaiah 26:9a NIV

9 My soul yearns for you in the night;

in the morning my spirit longs for you.

My Prayer

Lord, May (name's) soul yearn for you night & day. Amen

Ephesians 3:16-21 NIV

16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

My Prayer

Dear God,

I pray that out of your glorious riches you may strengthen (name) with power through your Spirit in her/his inner being, so that Christ may dwell in (name's) heart through faith. And I pray that (name), being rooted & established in love, may have power to grasp how wide & long & high & deep is the love of Christ, & to know this love that surpasses knowledge that she/he may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Now to you Lord who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to your power that is at work with us, to you Lord be glory in the church & in Christ Jesus throughout all generations for ever & ever!

Amen

This reminds me of a chart I used for years to prayer for a different Bible based characteristic for your children each day of the month.

Let me know how you use Bible passages to pray for others.

Next time: I'll share about using Bible passages to bless a child.
