Family Friday: How can I pray for my children?

Interceding on behalf of your sons and daughters

As a parent one of the most loving things we can do is pray for our children.
·         Go to God with your spouse and child. Let your child hear you pray for them.
·         Thank God for the gift of your child, and for entrusting them to you.

·         Ask God to reveal any area in your life that has not been given to Him
·         Ask God to cleanse you of the iniquity by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
·         Pray that God would cut off the cycle of sin in your family. Claim the truth of Psalm 103:17, that from now on righteousness would be the heritage of your children: But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;”
