If you value praying Scripture for your children, we've put together a full list of resources for you.

As moms, we know we should pray for our children.

We likely have the heart and the will to do so. But sometimes we don’t know how to  take our prayers beyond the basic and routine. We don’t know how to enter the heavenly places in our prayers, how to pray the mind of Christ in a routine, structured way.

That’s why we need a stockpile of Scripture to pray!

Knowing you can’t really improve on praying scripture, I created a set of scripture prayer cards to hang around my home.

There are 26 cards in this set and I’ve got them posted on doors, mirrors, and above the kitchen sink. This one simple resource has increased both the quality and quantity of my prayers.


Praying Scripture for your child is easy with this set of prayer cards!


The great thing is, there are many resources available that make praying scripture quick, portable, and simple.

You are welcome to grab and download the FREE  scripture prayer cards (see sample above).  Or visit some of the other pages below for more great resources. The important thing is to DO IT!

The one book I’d recommendPraying the Scriptures for Your Children: Discover How to Pray God’s Purpose for Their Lives

Packed with scriptures to pray, along with sample prayers, this book has helped me tremendously get a feel for how to pray the scriptures (vs. just reading a verse back to God with my child’s name inserted.) It has helped me pray scripture in a way that is very natural, emotive, and heartfelt to me. Highly recommended!
