From The Power of Praying For Your Adult Children
Lord, I pray you would teach me how to intercede for [NAME CHILDREN]. Thank you for loving my children and me, and hearing my prayers for them. Set me free from all worry and concern I have about them so I can have peace. I know you are greater than anything they face. Thank you for your love and power that are poured out in me, giving my prayers for them power.
Help me not blame myself for things that go wrong in their lives. Where I have made mistakes I confess those to you and ask that you would redeem them all and release me from guilt. Help me to forgive [NAME CHILDREN] for everything they have done to hurt or disappoint me. Help me to forgive [NAME OTHER PARENT] for everything I feel he/she does wrong in raising them. Help me to forgive everyone who has hurt [NAME CHILDREN] in any way. Help me to forgive myself for any time I feel that I have not been the perfect parent.
Lord, I know you are the only perfect parent. Thank you for loving [NAME CHILDREN] as much as I do. Thank you for hearing my prayers for them. Give me faith to believe and patience to wait for the answers. Today I say, “For these children I prayed,” and you, Lord, have heard my prayers and granted my petition. I give you all praise and glory.
In Jesus’s name I pray,
