Praying Scripture Over Your Son
Day 5 — Worry
Oh Ancient of Days,
I do not fear and worry because You are my Rock and my Salvation. You are clear in Your Word that I should not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Instead, You remind us that, “I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength.” And I love that if we put our hope in You, Lord, You will renew our strength. We will soar on wings like eagles, we will run and not grow weary, and we will walk and not be faint. Lord Jesus, I hear and obey Your Word today.
In this dark world, I know there will be trouble and I pray that my son will not worry about what he will eat or drink, or about his body, or what he will wear. Let my son know that his life is more than food and the body is more than clothes. Help my little son not to worry about anything; but instead, to pray about everything. Let him tell You what he needs, and thank You for all You have done and are going to do. And please forgive me, Lord, for letting worry creep into my life. Please, help me to be a good example of trusting in You in all circumstances.
Let my son trust in You and allow all of his hope to be in You alone. Let his hope not be in any man or woman, wealth or beauty, but only in You, Jesus. Fill him with wisdom and understanding. Let my son speak truth to others who worry and bring many to believe in You by telling them about Your precious gift of life that You so freely gave to us by dying on the cross, so that we might live with You forever in heaven.
Thank you Lord that worry does not need to be part of our existence.
Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
