Several people have asked me to teach them how to pray over their children at night . . God taught us more of this as we endured the forces of evil focused against our children in Bundibugyo. Today I found a beautiful passage that I hope to begin praying over my children nightly. IT is along the lines of what I have prayed but I love that it is straight out of scripture.
From Isaiah 11:2,3 The Message
These verses refer to Jesus but I do not see why we can not also ask that our children receive this blessing, He died not only for our salvation but to give us access to His Spirit and to grant us power.
” Life-giving Spirit of God hover over them (as they sleep)
Spirit that brings wisdom and understanding
Spirit that gives direction and builds strength
Spirit that instills knowledge and Fear-of-God.”
