Another Prayer For Children's Ministry . . . Pray for Children to Grow in Jesus!

We certainly need to be praying for the children in our ministries so they come to know Jesus and choose to ask Him for His forgiveness and grace. This is one of the primary reasons for us to do what we do in children's and family ministry. But, along with praying for children to be saved, we also need to pray for them so once they do, they will grow in Jesus and come to know and walk with Him!

Ephesians 4 -"14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."

Galatians 5 - "22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit."

Dear God, I pray for (name) and thank You he/she chose to put their trust in You and received Your gift of forgiveness! Please help (name) grow to know and walk with You so he/she will no longer be an infant tossed and blown about. Please help him/her to grow to know and walk with you and become an active part of the body, Your church, as he/she serves You! Please help (name) grow in You and show Your fruit of love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control as he/she lives their life every day and keeps in step with You."
