Occasionally before going up to bed for the night I will hear some of the news, and I am appalled at the increasing satanic attacks against our children. Kidnappings, sexual assaults, murdering these innocent little ones. Evil is on the increase, and I am asking everyone to please pray for our children. Pray God’s protection over them every day before they leave home.
If you personally have children of any age who are lost physically or spiritually, prayer is the answer. If satan has captured their souls through any kind of drugs, the power of God can overcome. I have copied some prayers that I found helpful for my kids and share them with you. Scriptures are powerful to remind God of His promises. Make the prayers personal by inserting the names of those you are lifting up to the Lord:
Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour out water to quench your thirst and to irrigate your parched fields. And I will pour out my Spirit on your descendants, and my blessing on your children(name your children here).
Isaiah 49:25 AMP For thus says the Lord: Even the captives of the mighty will be taken away, and the prey of the terrible will be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will give safety to your children and ease them.
Isaiah 54:13 NLT I will teach all your children, and they will enjoy great peace;
Is 54:17 NIV No weapon forged against you, (personalize with names), will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.
Isaiah 59:21 NIV “As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the LORD.
From my position as 'priest' in my children’s lives, because I have authority in Jesus' name and blood, I command the enemy assignments against (name your children) to cease. I rebuke passivity, blindness, rebellion, and evil influence that would cause them to fall into errors of judgment, wrong choices, or outright sin. I take all curses and vows in force against them and our family and nail them to the cross of Jesus Christ.
(Col. 2:13-15 NLT) You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. 14 He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. 15 In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.
I stand against ancestral, generational, and familiar empowerments. I plead Your covering of grace and mercy over all their present and past involvement in sin, iniquity, and rebellion that could give the evil one legal ground to affect or control. I pray for holy conviction of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name, I renounce and break the power of false loyalties and sever soul-ties with anybody who is not sold out to the true and living God.
I ask the blood of the Beloved Son of God to judicially deal with and destroy the works of the evil one against my family, thereby closing the doors to demonic harassment. Heavenly Father, Jesus in us is greater, and we pray for our Captain of the Lord's host to expose the schemes of wickedness and defeat its tactics. Protect (put their names here) with a heavenly guard of angels. Dispatch warring angels to fight this battle under the command of our Lord Jesus, the Ancient of Days and Captain of the Lord's hosts.
From my position as priest in (names) life, I bless them in Jesus' name. I pray that they will hunger and thirst for righteousness. Strengthen them in the Lord and cause them to order their life under the Lordship of Jesus. Establish them in godly wisdom and the fear of the Lord. Train them in the discipline of the Lord that will yield holiness and the fruit of righteousness. I ask for Your favor to rest on these chidren (names).
God, You commanded light to shine out of darkness. Please shine in (names) hearts to reveal Your glory in victory in their life. In Jesus' name, amen.
