Praying Scripture Over Your Son
Day 7— Trials/Adversity
Dear Almighty God,
You are the Breath of Life and the bright Morning Star. I lift my hands to You, the Most High King. You said to consider it pure joy, whenever we face trials of any kind, because the testing of our faith produces perseverance. Let my son persevere and finish Your work, so that my son may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. Please, walk beside my son when he faces trials in this world and help him to never give up.
I pray that when he walks through the valley of the shadow of death, that You are with him and that You never leave his side, just as You promised. I know that in this dark world, my darling son may become fearful of the unknown. But You alone know everything, even before it happens. You have already seen each and every second of my his life, the good days, and the problems that surely will come. As he walks with You and adversity raises its head, stir his heart to stay strong by putting on the full Armor of God, so that he can take a stand against the devil’s schemes.
And when evil encircles and the enemy attacks him, Lord, I speak Your protection around him this very minute, in the name of Jesus. Whom shall we fear? The army may encamp around us, but let us not fear. Instead, help him to be like the shepherd son, David, who put his hope in You before he walked out to face the giant Goliath.
I thank You that Psalm 29:11 says, “The Lord gives strength to his people and the Lord blesses his people with peace.” Instead of fear, I pray for Your peace over my son right now. Please, forgive me, Jesus, for being weak at times and allowing fear to be part of my life.
Help me to remember that when I am weak, You are strong.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
