Prayer for children

Prayer For Children

We say a prayer for children as they are the most precious gift in life that we are given. We nurture them, protect them and raise them to be good God loving human beings. In return we receive love and joy from them.

Bible Verses About Children Being A Blessing

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

John 16:21 When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.

Luke 18:15-17 People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

Proverbs 22:6 Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Psalm 127:3-5 Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

A Prayer For Children And Their Protection:

Dear Lord,

I come to you today to ask you to help me raise my children in faith and protect them from all evils. I pray they will know in their hearts and souls that you are always there to help them in their times of need and that you reward those who seek you.  Thank you my Lord.



Dear Lord,

please allow my children to live a peaceful life filled with love and happiness. Let honesty and strong faith be forever with them and keep sorrow and pain from their hearts. In Jesus name.




I ask that my children grow and develop with your wisdom and knowledge by their side. May they be pure of heart and joyful. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.



Dear God,

you granted me the gift of having children and I am so thankful to have been so blessed.  They are so dear to me and I ask you to bless them with good health and happiness.




I pray that my children’s love and faith for you grow in their heart and that they always give thanks to God the Father for everything that you bestow upon them.



Dear Lord,

please help my children to have their own mind and follow the path of faith and love.  Let them not be like many others around them, but let them be alert and self-controlled in all they do.
