Life by His Word. Praying His Great and precious promises over the children we birth, adopt and Foster.
Lord, thank You for Your great and precious promises. Thank You for the promise of Life by Your word, You said in Matthew 4:4 and Luke 4:4 “It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out the mouth of God.” Lord, in the old testament in Deuteronomy 8:3, Israel was tested with hunger and then supplied with the manna whereby You, Lord, were teaching them that they will not live by material food alone, but also on spiritual food and Your words were their spiritual food; Your words are our spiritual food. They are for each of my children whether birthed, adopted, or fostered. They are my children’s spiritual food.
Lord, I come before You today and thank You for the promise for the children we birth, adopt and foster of Life by the Word. Each of my children, the children in foster care, need physical food to survive but we know Lord this is only half of their need. My children and the children in foster care need spiritual food to thrive, to flourish and to blossom as You have called them to. Lord, may I be a parent, a woman who makes speaking Your word over my children a priority; who makes speaking Your word over the children in the foster care system a priority. May I be a parent and a woman who incorporates Your word in our daily living, daily study, and daily disciplines. May my children I birth, adopt and foster be fed by Your words. May the children in foster care be fed by Your words. As the children hear Your word, let them think about what Your word is saying. As the children hear Your word, I thank You that their spiritual health and strength are increasing down to the inner person in them. As the children hear Your word, they are being empowered to obey Your will for them. Your word is LIFE, Lord. Your word is ALIVE! Thank You Your words become alive to all the children I am praying for. Thank You, Lord, that my children’s lives are enriched because of Your word; that the lives of the children in foster care are enriched because of Your word. Thank You, Lord, that You are sanctifying these children by Your word. My children I birth, adopt, and foster and the children in the foster care system will know Your word and know it is truth for their lives (John 17:17). All Your scripture, all Your words, Lord, are breathed by You! Continue to breath those words of life on these children. Your words are useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that children of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:15-17). Because of Your word, because they live their life by Your word, my children I birth, adopt, and foster, the children in the foster care system I am praying for are equipped for every task You place before them and I thank You for this, Lord.
So today, I thank You the children have the promise of life by Your word. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Praying this over your children and the children in foster care is powerful! Their lives will be changed for the better. Believe that! I am praying God's great and precious promises over our children from now until the end of the year. If you missed any of these prayers, you can find them here.
