Praying Scripture Over Your Son
Day 12— Obedience/Attitude
Creator of the Universe,
You wrap Yourself in light as if it were a robe, the heavens proclaim Your righteousness, and I bow down before You, Lord, our Maker. I praise you God, for great is Your love, reaching to the heavens, and Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. I exalt You, Father. Let Your glory be over all of the earth. You are the Eternal, the Great I Am, the King of kings, and the Lords of lords!
Your Word says that if we obey You and keep Your commands, we will be blessed.
Jesus, please help my son to always obey You, by keeping all of Your commandments and to do what is right in Your eyes. I pray that he will always do Your will, for You are his God. And please give him a cheerful attitude in all that he does. Forgive me, Lord, when my attitude has not been pleasing to You. Let my son do everything whole-heartedly, as unto the Lord and not as unto men. Let others see a bright shining light when they look at my son!
Help my son to obey and respect me, because Your Commandment says to honor your parents, as well as to submit to authority. When Satan tempts him to disobey, please help me to teach him to hold up the Shield of Faith; with this, we can extinguish all of the flaming arrows from the evil one. We are taught in Your Word that we are created to be like You; true, righteous, and holy. Give my son a holy and happy attitude. Let him not complain and whine to try to get his way. Help me to lead by example and to be compliant with Your Word and have a heart of thankfulness in all circumstances.
Lord, please help my son today to be obedient and have a righteous attitude.
Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.
And if you walk in obedience to me and keep my decrees and commands as David your father did, I will give you a long life.”
You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
