Nothing sweeter....

My friend Emily sent me these Scriptures yesterday to pray over John Hunter. It seems like my knees are so sore lately from all the prayer we have been doing, but there is no sweeter joy than praying for your kids lives. Amen!!!

I didn't just want Eric and I to pray these prayers we wanted to get JH involved. So I cut out shapes from construction paper and wrote a different Scripture inside each shape (will post pictures later.... little man is sleeping).

Anyhoo... thought you might want to pray these prayers over your child (or future) children!


1. That John Hunter will know Christ as Savior early in life. (Psalm 6:3 and 2Timothy 3:15)

2. That John Hunter will be protected from the evil one in each area of his life...spiritual, emotional and physical. (John 12:15)

3. That John Hunter will have a responsible attitude in all his interpersonal relationships.

(Daniel 6:3)

4. That John Hunter will respect those in authority over him. (Romans 13:1)

5. That John Hunter will desire the right kinds of friends and be protected from the wrong

friends. (Proverbs 1:10-11)

6. That John Hunter will be kept from the wrong mate and saved for the right one.

( 2 Corinthians 6: 14-17)

7. That John Hunter will learn to totally submit to God and actively resist Satan in all

circumstances. (James 4:7)

8. That John Hunter will be single-hearted, willing to be sold out to Jesus Christ.

(Romans 12: 1-2 )

9. That John Hunter will be hedged in so he cannot find his way to wrong people or

that the wrong people cannot find their way to him. (Hosea 2:6)

10. Lastly, but very important, that John Hunter will have a hunger to know God and His Word!

I know we haven't met, but I read your blog regularly. Your relationship with the Lord is precious! I want to testify to you on how powerful, praying the scripture over your children is. My children are now grown, and I've seen the fruit of my prayers in so many areas of their lives!!

I was given a book"THE POWER OF A PRAYING PARENT" by Stromie Omartian, when my oldest was about 15. Oh how God used that book in a mighty way! His Word never returns void. How blessed you are to start early and pray for JH in all these areas of his life.
We serve a mighty and faithful God!
