Prayer for Peace

Lord help me find peace in You. Help me fill my day with peace. By having a peaceful work area, I will not be distracted and will stay focused on my tasks. Thank you for helping me find peace and staying focused on what is important and what You want for me.

Prayer for Motivation

Lord help me stay focused and energized throughout the day. Don’t let me become lazy in mind or body, for I have many things to accomplish today – all for Your glory!

Prayer for Guidance

Lord direct me down your path and guide me towards your will. “The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” Isaiah 58:11

Prayer for Knowledge

Help me gain knowledge through my studies and prayers so that I will become who you have planned for me to be.

Prayer for Wisdom

Help me to read Your Word and grow in wisdom. “Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver and her profit better than gold.” Proverbs 3:13-14

Prayer for Purpose

Lord Jesus transform me through your Word as I study that I may learn what you desire from me, things that are good and pleasing to you! Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this present world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may test and approve what is the will of God – what is good and well-pleasing and perfect.”

Prayer for Friends

I pray that I can recognize my friends and surround myself with those who respect me. Help me to find others who believe and trust in You. Those who will lift me up and speak life, not spew hatred and harmful words. “A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need” Proverbs 17:17.

Prayer for Caring

Lord help me to always be kind and compassionate to those around me. “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12.

Prayer for Discipline

Give me the ability to have the self-control to guide my actions to accomplish the daily tasks that have been entrusted to me. “Whoever heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray.” Proverbs 10:17.

Prayer for Courage

Lord instill in me the courage to ask questions, to express my ideas, to have confidence in my work, and to stand on my beliefs.

I hope these prayers are helpful to your little ones. Take the time to pray with your children throughout the week and discuss areas where they are struggling. You might be able to spark some conversations about when you had to face obstacles as a child.

  1. I would love to help my children become prayer warriors. I really struggle with this myself, so this would be a great resource.

  2. Consistency

  3. Being a prayer warrior is being deliberate. We are developing habits to do that throughout our days. Thank you for the giveaway.

  4. Making it a priority. We tend to focus on the Bible study & not focus on the prayer aspect.

  5. The hardest part is getting them all to focus, they have a lot of faith though, so,I think they will do great!

  6. Consistency is the hardest part of teaching to become prayer warriors.

  7. The hardest part (so far) about teaching my kids to pray has been how to talk to someone they can’t see!

  8. While we pray together nightly as a family and my kids take prayer requests from others, I think it is hard to get them to really focus during the prayer time itself. That is probably the hardest thing to teach is how to really focus when they pray. Thank you for the giveaway!

  9. Modeling prayer without making it seem like a formula or something where they don’t learn to pour out their hearts to God.
