Scripture Prayers – For the Future

We all seek to find the purpose and meaning for our life. I have seen many an adult that is still wandering in an effort to figure out why they are here. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want that for my children. I want them to be confident that God knit them together perfectly and that He has created them for a specific purpose. If I have that clear objective for them in mind, why not start praying now instead of when they are 34-years-old, still living at home and can’t seem to keep a job?

This scripture is easy to read through without really thinking about what it means, especially if you’ve heard it a zillion times, but it’s powerful when it’s prayed from the heart of a mother for her child.

Lord, you know the plans you have for my child, plans to prosper her and not to harm her, plans to give him hope and a future. Cause my child to call upon you and come and pray to you, and then to listen to her, Lord. Let her seek you with all of her heart, and find you when she does seek you.

Jeremiah 29:11-13

I love this one since I’ve been doing so much crocheting lately. I think about each small stitch that is made to create an amazing work of art when I am done–exactly as God has done with each one of our children (and us!).

Lord, may my child understand to the depths of his inmost being that you intricately knit him together. Cause him to have confidence in the works of your hands that are wonderfully made. If he doubts, let him remember that nothing is hidden from you and that you wove him together with purpose. May he never forget that all of his days were written in your book before even one of them ever came to be.

Psalm 139:13-16
