Pray

Being in God's Word and praying are the two most important things we can ever do. As parents we ought to pray continuously for our children no matter what age they are - for that matter, pray for them while they're still a twinkle in your eye! We have an enemy who seeks to destroy the family but the prayers of the righteous person accomplish much (James 5:16b).

There is never a shortage of things we can pray for our young adults. Here are some thoughts to get you started. Pray:
  • for spiritual protection
  • that their faith would remain strong (or that the Holy Spirit would open their eyes and ears to know Truth)
  • that they would be surrounded by good and godly influences
  • that they would fix their thoughts on things that are good and lovely and pure and not be distracted by worldly pleasures
  • that their desire would be to please God and to glorify Him with their lives
  • that they would seek God's direction and wisdom
  • that any romantic relationship they would enter into would be with someone compatible, especially on the spiritual level
  • that they would find employment suitable to their skills and abilities so they could provide for themselves and, possibly, a family
  • that they would be hard workers
What would you add to this list?

  2. Prayer is our divine connection to the divine. I have two of my own young adult children and I pray lots - many times prayers of gratitude for the good choices they have made. My Virtual Vineyard

  4. I most assuredly believe in the power of prayer! You have great starting points. I'd add only that I like to pray that God help them become the people He would have them to be. Also, taking a passage of scripture and praying it back to God with the correct personal pronouns is a powerful thing! After all, God's Word is perfect and in line with His will and He has promised to give us anything in line with His will.😇
