Sometimes our schedule can prevent us from praying for our kids as we might like to. Use this "pray as you go" model, with these 12 daily prayers for your kids. 

One of the most powerful things we can do as a parent is pray for our children. We know that. But so often, we don’t DO that.

Let’s face it, busy-ness, hurried-ness, a mile long to-do list, and constant distractions can keep us from doing what we know we should be doing: PRAYING. How can a busy mom regularly (and easily!) pray for her kids?

12 Daily Prayers for Your Kids 

If your schedule prevents you from praying for your kids in the way you want to, try this pray as you go model. We're sharing 12 daily prayers for your kids.

You understand the “as you go,” concept, right? In Matthew 10:7 Jesus told His disciples to proclaim the Kingdom “as you go.”

Likewise, Paul instructs us to “pray without ceasing” and while that always seemed pretty much impossible to me, when I reframed it with the “as you go” wording, being in prayer for my children seems actually doable.

Try these 12 daily prayers for your kids, using this "pray as you go" model. This model helps when your schedule might prevent you from praying for your kids.

For example:

As we sit in the car line, instead of scrolling, you can pray Scripture.

As we chop veggies for tonight’s salad or wash breakfast bowls, we can be in prayer for our children.

As you fold laundry, you got it, pray Scriptures.

As you nurse your baby at 3am, you can offer a mother’s prayer of Scripture over your children.

You see, the idealism of setting aside a dedicated time each day to pray for our kids seems nice but in reality, ends up sabotaging us from doing anything at all.

In other words, our noble idealism isn’t helpful.
