Praying for Our Children – For Their Salvation


“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” 3 John 1:14

I remember when we were on the mission field and we were struggling with some issues in our family. I looked at my husband and said, “I will not win a nation and lose my own son!”

No matter how successful I am in life, if my children do not walk with God, I will feel as though I failed in the most important role I’ve ever been given…the role of a mother.

I realize that our job is to raise them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord; that we are to live out loud for Jesus in front of them and that we are to equip them in the Word. I also realize they are responsible to God for the choices they make once they become adults.

But just because the clock of life ticks past the magic age of 18, it doesn’t mean we stop praying for our children. We never stop being a mother, so we can never stop praying for our children.

Whether your little bundle of joy still resides in your womb or lives in his or her own home, you are a mom… and we all know – there ain’t no love like a momma’s love!

That means, no one will pray for your kids like you will! No one will love your kids like you will! No one will bombard heaven for your kids like you will!

This week, I’m going to write about praying for our children.

There is nothing greater you can do; there is no greater work; there is no greater way to spend your time as a mother than on your knees in intercession for your kids.

As Oswald Chambers once said, “Prayer is the work!”

But as you pray, be specific. Cover them well in prayer. Seek God’s face for their future. Pray protection over them. Ask God to guard their hearts. Ask God to rebuke the enemy and to shield your children from every fiery dart he tries to send their way.

Today, let’s focus on praying for our children’s salvation. It’s the most important thing you can pray for in their lives.

So, here are a few verses we can cling to in prayer…claim by faith…and trust to come to pass. Here are some verses that we can pray knowing we are praying according to God’s will:

“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that he hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” 1 John 5:14-15

“Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.” Mattew 18:14

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9

“This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:3-4

โ€œBelieve in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.โ€ Acts 16:31

“And He said to them, ‘Which of you shall have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has come to me on his journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; and he will answer from within and say, ‘Do not trouble me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give to you’? ‘I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs. So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” Luke 11:5-10

There are a host of other verses you can pray for your children…but hopefully, these will get you started.

Go back over those precious verses, sweet friend. Look at how many times it talks about the will of God. When we pray God’s Word back to Him in accordance to His will, we know He hears us – we know He is working behind the scenes of our children’s lives to bring about their salvation.

Hold on to heaven with all you’ve got and bombard the throne of God for the salvation of your children. Whether they’re a newborn babe or an adult, you’re still their mom and no one is going to pray for them like you are! Absolutely no one!

If your child is saved, you are surely blessed! You have the joy of watching your children walk in the truth. Pray for those who don’t have that same joy. Pray for their children. Join them in prayer as one mother praying on behalf of another!

Join hands and hearts for the salvation of the next generation and let’s see what God will do when we do our greatest work…on our knees!

Are you praying for your child? Are you praying for someone else’s child? Would you like to add some verses for mothers to cling to and claim as they pray for their children’s salvation?

If you’d like to list your child’s name in the comment section, I’d be honored to pray for them. No one will ever pray for your children like you. But no one will ever understand the prayer of a mother’s heart like another mother! Let’s pray for our children – let’s keep knocking until the door opens – let’s keep trusting God to save our children and then stand back and see the salvation of God!

  1. Thank you! You are right, no one will pray for our children like us. I have three in college and woke up with a heavy heart. I spent almost 30 min bed just praying for them before I felt like God released me to move on. I remember once while living in Mozambique and feeling useless as I had just begun language study, that I read that quote, “Prayer is the greater work.” and God was reminding me that my most important job was just to pray over my children and the school they attended.

    • Deborah Foley-Langdon

      Please pray for my Melissa she is very depressed and needs The Lord in her life I pray for her to let him in . I know The Lord loves his children She needs a touch from The Lord

      • Praying with your for Melissa! That she would understand the depth of God’s love for her and that she would open her heart to the Lord, to His will and to His plans for her life! That she would sense His unmistakeable presence and embrace His saving grace and unconditional love for her.

  2. Stephanie, I love this. I've been praying for some of my “relative children” this morning. Please pray for my little niece Lily. Also pray for niece/nephew Olivia and Anthony as they are at camp with their youth group this week, and I'm praying it will be great spiritual feeding for them.

  3. What a precious post! My little girl already loves Jesus and I pray she will always remain close to Him.

    I have a niece named Nikki (college age) who needs to surrender to the Lord. She is a hurting young lady.

    God bless you and your family,
    Beth

  4. I absolutely love this post and can't wait to read more this week. These are great verses. please join me in praying for my children; Garrett is 10, parker is 8, natalie is 6, and Lincoln is 3.5 years. Please also pray for my nieces and nephews ( particularly Nicole, she will be 15 soon). She has been attending our home church in NY with friends from her school (youth group) Nicole and her family family is not saved. She loves youth group and we pray her parents and my in-laws will attend with her. blessings, Julie (from TN) ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Shanda ~ First, I have to tell you I'm jealous that you were in Mozambique. ๐Ÿ™‚ When the Lord called us to the mission field, I desperately wanted to go to Africa, but God clearly led us to Costa Rica. Still have a desire to go to Africa one day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prayer is definitely the greater work! And I love how you reminded us that the Lord even wakes us up to pray for our children.

  6. Julie ~ I'm praying for Lily, Olivia and Anthony with you! Can't wait to hear what God does in them, through them and in their midst this week! Thanks for allowing me the privilege of praying for them.

  7. Beth ~ How beautiful to know your little girl knows the Lord! I join you in prayer that she will always remain close…that she will never wander to the right of the left, but be fully devoted and yielded to the Living God as she walks through life. I also join you in praying for Nikki. That's a hard age. I'm praying God gives her wisdom to see through the lies and a tender heart to turn to Him and be saved.

  8. Julie ~ It's SO good to hear from you again! I join you in praying for Garrett, Natalie and Lincoln as well as your nephews and nieces. Praying especially for Nicole to come to know Jesus. I also pray for your in-laws too.

    Thank you for connecting and thank you so much for the privilege of praying with you!

  9. I come by to visit you via one of our blogging buddies at http://heartofthehome-blog.blogspot.com/. I enjoyed browsing your blog and reading your great post.. We would like to invite you to stop by and visit us when you have a moment. Have a blessed day, and hope to see you soon.. God Bless you and yours..

  10. I would be honored and grateful if you would pray for my daughter, Sarah.

  11. 3 John 1:14 I know that my joy will be complete when my children are walking with the Lord!Please pray for my daughter Dominique for her salvation and healing from depression.
    Thank you and God bless you,I am so pleased that Our Father led me to this site!

  12. I only recently came back to the Lord after so very long from leaving Him. During that time, I married & had a daughter. She’s “spiritual” but doesn’t know much about Jesus, as I failed to raise her. She’s an “intellectual”, and she has a very high moral code, but I know she needs to be saved. I’ve been praying for the Spirit to let her know she’s lost in this world and to let her know she needs to be in this world but not of the world. And been praying that she will be in search for God’s will in her life.

    Would certainly love to have your prayers for my daughter, as it is not only the promise of Heaven that is wonderful – but also there is no greater life than to walk thru this world with The Lord while worshiping Him. I’m also praying for her to find a Christian man to come into her life. She is 27.

    • Sue,
      Thank you SO much for sharing your story and for honoring me with the privilege of praying with you for your daughter! Praying with you and looking forward to hearing from you when she gives her life to Jesus!

      • …and thank you for offering up prayers. As the song goes, “What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer”. It sure is a privilege! And I appreciate your offers to so many other people. ๐Ÿ™‚ God Bless You!

  13. Please pray for my adult son who is saying he wants to end his life.

    • It’s so hard to be a mother of our adult children! They don’t realize they take us down every path they go down and it can be absolutely heart-wrenching! Praying for him now, Joanne! Please keep me posted! I’m looking forward to hearing how God gets ahold of his heart!

  14. Update on Sean. Please continue to pray for him and for my broken heart. I haven’t heard from Sean since the day after Christmas. He borrowed his friends car and took $70.00 from him. His brother told him he was to be moved out of his house in one day and that was the last time anyone has heard from him. I continue to pray for his protection and salvation.

    Thank you kindly for your prayers,
    Joanne

  15. Joanne,
    What Sschott said is so true. My heart identifies with yours and I’ve just prayed for Sean’s protection and salvation. Please pray that God will rescue and save my son, Coby as well. Satan is trying to destroy him too.
    Your sister in Christ,
    bKing

    Thanks for your prayers! Hearts are breaking all over, and we know that only God can
    be victorious!

    I am asking for prayer for my son Devin. He was raised his whole life to know Jesus. He was homeschooled , and the Bible was a subject we took every year. He is 19 and has decided God failed him. It hurts my heart to hear the things he says. I try to remember it is just the devil. The devil is a liar! My son has a calling, and I know Jesus will restore him. I pray for everyone out there in this same circumstance! God bless you!!!

I’m asking for God to show me how to specifically pray for Sophie and enable me to do it! That I would die to self especially when I would love to just sit and take my ease in front of the computer or television. But instead, that I would use that time and all day even to pray. That I would redeem the times for the days are evil and as you say, bombard heaven on behalf of my daughter. Thank you so much!!!

    • Libby,
      Thank you so much for the honor of praying with you for your daughter. I know how hard it is to be a single mom, but the fact that you see how important it is to be intentional, persistent and consistent, I know the Lord will bless all your hard work. No one will ever love your daughter like you and no one will ever pray for her like you, so keep pressing in and pressing on knowing that as much as you love her, God loves her more!

  34. I’m a single mother of two beautiful, talented daughters with real leadership potential. However, the enemy has developed a real strong- hold on them. They use to love church activities, praying, and reading the Bible and were always very enthusiastic, happy and motivated. Now (ages 21& 22), depression and anxiety moods have interrupted their lives to a point where they can’t even develop normal relationships. My oldest daughter even mentions suicide at times. Please pray for them and God bless you in advance.

  35. My sons name,,,Joshua,,,,thank you for your prayers

He was supposed to have it 2 weeks ago but it was abandoned because his oxygen levels dropped before the operation started. He is fine now but still has to have the operation. I am praying for his surgeon and him that it is successful this time around.

I have been a single parent for the last 23 yrs since i left my husband because of his alcohol problem and have raised my 5 sons alone. I did the best I could to raise them the right way but they have chosen the other road. They have gotten into drugs and alcohol an one is very angry. Pray for them (Elton,Neto,Ross,Ely,Isaiah) that God will save and deliver them. I really like the verse 1John 5:14-15, and Matthew 18:14. Leti

  50. I come across this website looking for prayers to help me pray for my son. He was raised in church and knows what is right and wrong. He turned 18 and thinks he is grown. He has became disrespectful and rebellious. I have cried and prayed more than I ever have for him. Sometimes it seems he hates me. He is 19 now, I pray for him first thing in he mornings that God would bring him back safe and that he gets saved and repents. The last thing I do at night is pray for him. A hedgehog protection that Gods Angels surround him. And for God to put someone a Christian Godly person in his pathway he will listen to. My sons name is Kendall.

    • Praying with your for Kendall! That God would stir in Kendall’s heart the truth he learned as a child – that He would remove the doubts and confusion that this world and the enemy have put in his heart and mind – that He would give him the faith of a child and that His goodness would lead him to repentance.

  58. Stephanie
    I was driving to work sobbing this morning and praying for my son Michael, daughter in law Jennifer and their little boy. I was beside myself because we had a falling out because I asked them what was wrong. Long story but they have become so narracistic and more concerned with how many likes they get on Facebook that they worship their phones. They need Jesus so bad! I was so desperate and actually prayed that the Lord take my life because I cannot handle losing my son and grandson. I got to work and the answer came upon me! Pray for their salvation!!! I typed those words into google and found your blog! Praise God! Thank you for this blog and reminding me to “give it to the Lord according to His will”. Please pray for Michael and Jennifer’s salvation. What mighty good they could do in the name of Jesus if their focus was him and not the narcissism from Satan

    • Roberta, I’m so sorry your are going through this! It’s definitely harder to be a mother of adult children and watch them make choices you know aren’t good for them. Praying for your son, Michael and his wife Jennifer and your grandson too. Please keep me posted and I look forward to hearing that Jesus is the magnificent obsession of their hearts!

  59. Prayers for my unsaved sons, Joshua Lewis and Michael Lewis and prayers for my daughter Brandi Lewis Dotson who is saved, but struggling with her son. God is alive and well and still ready to answer prayers!!!!!!!

    • Praying with you for Joshua and Michael and for Brandi too! Oh that Jesus would woo them to Himself even today!

      • Stephanie, I wanted to update you on my son Michael, daughter in law Jennifer – since I last asked you to pray for their salvation I have been joining you in prayer and I can see the Lord answering those prayers!!! Praise God they have been praying together and seeking guidance from Jesus!!! Please continue to pray with me for their salvation and that the Lord will open their hearts and fill them with the blessing of the Holy Spirit. I BELIEVE he will perform a miracle in their lives and bring them to Him!!! Thank you so much for your prayers and for glorifying God with your fellowship with all the mothers like me. I feel so blessed to have found your blog!!!

  60. Please pray for my son Chris he is 31 years old and he was brought up in church and he is not living for the Lord.I pray and cry many of tears and I am fighting back and wont give up till he is saved.Thank you and God bless you

    • Oh Viola, that breaks my heart! I’m praying with you for Chris! I know those tears! I’ve prayed those tears! And I’m trusting God for mine too!

  61. Kindly pray for my lost adult daughter, Kelly, as she is angry with me for sharing my faith with her daughter, my precious grandaughter, who accepted Jesus as her Savior. So now, Iโ€™m not being allowed to spend time with her or her brother because they do not want me evangelizing their kids, and especially donโ€™t want us praying for their hearts to change. My heart breaks. Thanks.

    • Oh Teri! That so hurts my heart! I’ve heard that from several other Christian moms who have children who are raising their children to believe that there is no God… or to believe in a false God. Praying for Kelly… that God would make her heart tender towards Him and that she will come to know Jesus as her Savior and that she will raise her children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

      Praying also that she not only invites you to spend time with your grandchildren, but that you will have many opportunities to share the love of Jesus with them!

      • Steph,
        Your words were comforting and encouraging. Thank you for operating in the gifts that God gave up you. One blessing is that I know that my grandaughter is saved as she understands the message of the cross and loves to spend time in the Bible. She also had some serious fears and night terrors allayed; i witnessed that. Her mom’s anger stems from the fact that her daughter trusts me more than her in matters of God. I don’t know what to do about that because I tried to impart truth to her. Welcome advice and insights. Thank you again.

    • I pray in Yeshua’s mighty Name to soften your daughter’s heart towards you and towards HIM. May HE show HIMSELF to her in a way that she would understand. Amen. I also pray in Yeshua’s Name that you will get to see your grandchildren very soon. Oh Lord have mercy and grace. Thank you Lord you love our families more than we do. Comfort Teri’s heart and fill her with YOUR peace. AMEN!!!

  62. Please pray for my Children especially Christian and Lorin, for them to turn to God, to trust, believe and feel his love and peace
    amen

However, over the years I did not see to it that we attended church regularly and he has moved away from his faith and doesn’t make time for church. He is constantly restless and unfulfilled always seeking material things to make him happy. Please pray that his heart will be softened and he will feel God’s tug at his heart. My 16-yr-old daughter also accepted Christ at age 6. I ask for your prayers for her renewed faith as well. A mother can’t bear to think of her children not spending eternity with the Savior.

  74. I ask for your prayers for my children Joshua and Krista. Both were brought up in faith but I feel they have wandered from the straight path. It literally breaks my heart to think my children may not spend eternity in the presence of our Lord. But I know Our Lord is faithful in his promises and I will continue to pray.

      You know when I read Florida I thought of Rodney Howard Browne’s ministry in Tampa. Pastor Rodney has a deliverance ministry and imparts the fire of the Lord where many are changed inside out. I would encourage your son to go there. God is so full of surprises. Actually I wish I could go but I’m in Europe. Only if pastor Rodney comes to a nearby country that I could go. May the peace of the Lord be in your heart.

I truly don’t know how you could possibly pray for ALL the children’s names listed in these comments, but I am desperate so I will humbly and with a bit of hope list the names of my three adult children- Eric, Tiffany and Tanya- who need the Lord desperately! I would list the names of my grandchildren and great-grandchildren, but that would be too many more for you. I will thank you ahead of time and trust that even one prayer would be of benefit.

    • Hi Janise! I pray for them as the come in and go through the list and pray some more at different times. And some of the moms who have left their children’s names here also pray. We’re moms who have the same struggles and lift each other and our children up, knowing that the fervent prayers of a righteous mom avails much! Praying with you for Eric, Tiffany and Tanya.

  84. Please help me to pray for my adult son Clayton and his wife. They are agnostic. He once wanted to be a youth minister and minister to all the lost teens in all the big cities whom others looked over because of tattoos, piercings, and history of abuse. Those who are not asked to church and overlooked because they would not fit into certain churches because of their looks or background. I don’t know what happened but it all changed. I am not sure his wife as ever attended church. They respect my spiritual beliefs but often argue science vs The Word with me. My son was saved at the age of 9 and received the gifts of wisdom and discernment which is evident in his daily life. The Lord had things for him to do in his service. Boston Bible college also recruited him and they had him visit their college for two weeks his senior year all expenses paid. This was an amazing gift from GOD. Especially for them to know of him even though we are from a small town in Kentucky.They did this knowing he had tattoos and piercings. He said that it would be easier for teens and young adults to communicate and listen to someone who looked like they did….that they would listen and believe that if God could forgive him for the sins he wore on the outside that they could also be forgiven for the sins they wore on the outside as well as those they kept hidden away inside. He was 18 at the time. He truly believed that Inner City Youth Ministry was needed. That if he wore a suit they would not listen because no one, who looked like they had it all together would understand the heartaches and pain that they had endured in the rough areas where they grew up. At that time I had never seen a child with so much passion for others his age. I had never seen someone trusting in God enough to do what he thought it would take to reach out to the lost children that a lot of us look over on daily drives or evenings watching the news. Jesus preached to the poor and the common. I know my son has a gift and a knowledge that could reach many young people. I know that God will bring him back to where he was and I am praising God for what he will do for my son and what my son will do for these lost children of our lonely wicked world. Please pray with me for my son that he will hurry back when God commands and do what God has planned for him. Thank you and God Bless all the children of this world.

  85. Pls pray for my 20 year old son Luis. He is walking in such darkness.

    • Oh Zaida! The enemy is such a liar and is after the hearts and minds of young people. BUT GOD is greater than any scheme of the enemy. Praying with you for your son Luis.

    • Pray with you for DeQuincy, Libby! The enemy is after the kids of this generation but God hears the prayers of a momma’s heart… God sees the way you’ve sowed spiritual seeds of the Word in his life… and God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all you could ask or think.

    I have 3 grown children..
    2 are born again and working for the Lord, despite the challenges of life.
    One has rebelled against God and against me… whenever I hold a conversation with her, it ends up in a heated argument , and I end up apologizing , even when I don’t see where I have gone wrong…
    Still, I continue praying for her deliverance and protection.
    At this point, I wish to keep the names anonymous , because, a few times , I have shared with friends, but as soon as she gets wind of it, the situation gets worse..
    Our God knows her by name and the difficulties, she’s going through.
    Pls just stand with me.
    I believe, God will bring her through the storm, then I can give a testimony, without fear.
    Be blessed, as join with me, in praying for my daughter.

    • Praying with you for your daughter Pauline! Praising Jesus for the 2 who are saved and who are walking with the Lord…and praying for the Lord to get ahold of your daughter’s heart and that she will be a work-changer for Christ very soon!

  100. I don’t know where to start since the numerous heart aches over power my mind. My 22 year old Marty has been in a very dark place for over 4 years. Marty was a sweet boy with a wonderful heart. He attended Christian preschool, his love for god was powerful and that made me proud. As he started growing he became angry, talked back and he even started to drink and use drugs. Right now he is a lost child, I will continue to pray for him, to bring him back to the saviors path. Please join me in prayer as I have lost my own son in this world of crime , violence and drug abuse
    Sincerely Moni

    • Oh Moni! I’m so sorry you’re walking this heart-breaking season of motherhood! It’s a familiar story to far too many mommas. Praying with you for Marty, that God would deliver him from the drugs, the drinking and the anger…and that He would deliver Marty from sin and self. God is able to save to the uttermost and it’s not His will that any should perish. Praying with you and can’t wait to hear the day when Marty is a man of God who walks in the Truth!

    • Moni ….. BLESS. Luke 4:10 got me through this same situation with my son. “The Lord will command his angels
      Concerning you; to guard you.” I pray my sons name right in there!!!

Their father died 12 years ago and it is much harder keeping on track as a single mom trying to run a business.
