Praying for Our Sons from Head to Toe: Day 4

Hellooooo Strong Mamas!

Here we are at Day 4! The response has been incredible as prayer has gone forth on behalf of our boys. On behalf of young men who will one day lead the charge of extending God’s agenda in the earth. Never think for one minute that you are just training a boy. You are training a soldier. A brawler. A warrior for Christ. And we pray for them so that they will be able to engage the battle without being embattled. We pray for them because there will come a time when we will no longer be here, no longer able to guide them…

But our prayers to the God who Adores them will be.

Let’s race to the throne and cry out for our boys now. Dig deep. There is so much at stake.

HIS NECK

Lord, in the Old Testament, those who refused to obey You were called stiff-necked, so today I pray my son will be submissive to You (Neh. 9:29). Your word promises that obedience to Your law results in a long and peaceful life, and I ask that on behalf of my son today (Prov. 3:1-2).

Jesus said, “If you love me, obey My commands” (John 14:15). I pray my son will demonstrate that love for You today by obeying Your commands. I pray he will be strong, courageous and careful to do everything written in Your word so that he will be prosperous and successful today (Joshua 1:8-9). Help him to see that Your precepts are good (Ps. 119:128-129).

I pray he will believe in the name of Jesus Christ and love others as You have commanded us to do (1 John 3:23). I pray he will humble himself before You today so that You will lift him up (James 4:10). May he have the mind of Christ, who although was God Himself, humbled himself by taking the form of a man and obeyed even to the point of death (Phil. 2:6-8).

HIS ARMS

Lord, many times Your strength is personified by Your outstretched arm (Exodus 15:16, Deut. 7:19, 11:2). Today I pray for my son’s arms and his strength- that he will clothe himself with Your strength (Is. 51:9). I pray my son will see that he has You to help him fight his battles (2 Chron. 32:8). May You be the strength of His life and his portion forever (Ps. 73:26).

Stand by his side and give him strength (2 Tim. 4:17). Help him to realize and call on the power of the Holy Spirit to give him the strength to do all that You have called him to do (Eph. 1:19). Thank You that You have promised to give him strength to do all that You have called him to do if he would but ask (phil. 4:13). I pray he will love You with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his mind and with all his strength all the days of his life (Mark 12:30). I pray my son will long to embrace his future wife with his arms (Song 2:6). That his arms will long to embrace her and only her (Prov. 5:20). Grant that he would be a husband of unwavering faithfulness and a reflection of Your mighty steadfast love towards his wife.

In Jesus Powerful and Mighty name we pray. Amen.

Stay Strong. Period.

  1. I can appreciate the idea of praying for the neck. What our sons look at, run towards and admire reminds me of the have a ‘hearts desire’. I want my boys to turn their necks towards God and away from their natural desires that want to control to destroy (we call that addiction). Thank you for this prayer directive!!
