I enjoy praying for my kids every night, in fact I love praying for them so much that I find myself doing so throughout the whole day many times. I enjoy knowing that God cares more for their hearts than I do and I often have so much I want to pray about for them that they get fidgety and just want to go to bed. I needed a way to shorten my focus so I wasn’t keeping them up for 10 minutes while I prayed over everything I wanted to before laying them down. To that end, I made monthly prayer themes so I can be intentional and brief.
I wanted to share them with you in the event that you may like a theme for each month of the year to focus on. There are countless Bible verses that support these themes, not just the ones I’ve listed so definitely pray through other Scripture that comes to mind!
Just click on the image and the download should automatically happen (it will take some time for the download to complete). This is the first time I’ve shared one of a my documents on the blog, so I expect some kinks. Please leave me a comment letting me know of any errors!
Enjoy approaching God on behalf of your kids, speak truth into their hearts as they hear you praying for them, and enjoy the conversations that come up afterward sometimes as they listen. It truly is a wonderful experience for both the parent and the child!
I attribute help with this idea to Coram Deo kids’ ministry which first introduced me to monthly prayer themes as I served in the nursery.
