If you have wayward children, rather than scream all day at them or to whoever will listen, PRAY; Locate Scriptures to speak continuously over them. Why weep as if hope is totally lost, particularly if you are a Christian parent? You have what you need. Prophesy into the life of that child. Speak the Word of God with faith and authority. For instance, say:
Hear, my child, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding in Jesus name – Proverbs 4:1
Hear me now therefore, O my child, and depart not from the words of my mouth in Jesus name – Proverbs 5:7
Come, my children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of The Lord – Psalm 34:11
Stand together with your spouse; don’t accuse each other of whose fault it is. What you need to be is united, looking up to God for help. Most couples are against each other over wayward children ignorant of the fact that the enemy uses it a a tactic to divide your home even further. Don’t fall for it!
Even if your children are not wayward, pray in order to secure a glorious destiny for them.
One of the major scriptures I use on my children is Hebrews 11:3. Use it too. Say
As the worlds were framed by the Word of God, I use that same Word to frame you my child.
You are a source of blessing to me.
You will be the joy of many generations.
You will not be a victim of peer pressure.
You will be first among your equals
Your destiny will not be frustrated.
You will not fall into the hands of wicked and unreasonable men/women
I come against any friendship that will take you down in life.
You will serve God all the days of your life!
Prophesy over them establishing their glorious future.
Another favourite scripture of mine: Isaiah 54:13 – All your children shall be taught of The Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.
Their education shall be full of peace
Their careers shall be full of peace
Their marriage and family life shall be full of peace,
And the list goes on and on..
Do not confess negatively over your children. They may do wrong, but don’t speak wrong. The wrong words will never produce right results!
Ask God for wisdom to guide and discipline them in love according to the scriptures. Teach them bible truths.
The word of God is in your hand; use it. Put it in your mouth, ingest it into your spirit and release it in faith. Don’t sit back and watch your child’s life be destroyed. It doesn’t matter how old they are, it doesn’t matter if they are still under your tutelage or not. Keep standing in the gap for them; their life depends on it. What you say about your children, is exactly what you will see. The word of God CANNOT return void and unaccomplished!!!
