My biggest passion is Jesus and praying his powerful Word over those I love. As parents we have been given the unique privilege to lead, shape and champion our children. One of the ways I do this is by praying biblical scripture over them every day.
In fact, I am so passionate about it I chose my favorite scriptures I like to pray and I built a mobile app with them! As a mom I found that while I often had a hand to hold my bible with I didn’t have enough hands to turn the pages… you know the feeling I’m sure. So I wrote the scriptures into prayers and I put them in an app so that I can do it all one-handed. And now you can too!
I also know parenthood is driven by ticking time-bombs so each prayer takes less than 60 seconds to pray. All you have to do is insert the name and pronoun of the person you are praying for. Easy.
I’ll be posting a daily prayer here from the app, but I highly encourage you to download the app itself. There is a full year of prayers available for free and it is available in The App Store and in the Google Play Store.
Psalm 5:12, Numbers 6:24-27
Father, because “you bless the righteous,” I ask you to, “cover [Name] with favor as with a shield.” May, “the LORD bless [Name] and keep [him/her]; the LORD make his face to shine upon [Name] and be gracious to [him/her]; the LORD lift up his countenance upon [Name] and give [him/her] peace.” Father, I speak this blessing over (Name) in the name of Jesus Christ and by this, “put [your] name upon [Name, that you] will bless [him/her].” Amen.
