Day one

By: Raychel Chumley

Welcome to day #1 of our 30 day Prayers for our Children Challenge. After you have prayed today’s prayer please leave an “Amen” in the comment section below. Thank you for praying!

Bible Verse:

2 Timothy 1:7 “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”



Dear God,

I pray for ________ (Insert Child’s Name) today. I pray that he/she would not be scared to start this new school year. I pray that instead of fear they would be filled with excitement and wonder. I pray that _________ (Insert child’s name) would not be anxious about all the newness of a new school year. I pray for self-control, love, and power to flow through my child today. If they see another child that is scared or afraid in their classroom, I pray they would be a friend to them and love them. Thank you for making my child (and me!) brave and for loving him/her even more than I do. In your name I pray.



Thank you for praying! See you tomorrow for day 2 of the 30 day Prayers for our Children!

30 Day Prayers for our Children

Tomorrow is September 1st. It’s back to school time! Every morning, for the next 9 months, you will check the backpack, make the breakfast, tie the shoes, brush the hair, write the “Love, Mom” notes for the lunch box, kiss the cheeks, and watch as  your child spreads their wings and flies towards knowledge and freedom. It’s a terrifying and exciting place to be for a mom! On one hand you are rejoicing for making it through another summer and thinking, “Yippee! They are back in school.” At the same time you worry and wonder, “Oh Lord, they are back in school. Will they be ok?”

It’s a lesson in trust for each and every one of us. As moms, we can teach them friendship, manners, respect, and kindness. We can fill up their little love buckets with encouraging words and lots of hugs. We can model faith and forgiveness. We teach them to be brave and brush them off when they fall down. We kiss boo boos and soothe fears but our protective arms only stretch so far. That’s when we have to remember to leave them in the arms of their heavenly Father. His arms are big enough to hold them wherever they go.

This is why, starting tomorrow, we are spending the next 30 days praying for our children. A mom’s prayers are powerful and important! We also are busy and forget.So we are doing this together! Here’s how it works:

  • Every day, for the next 30 days, I will post a prayer for our children here at and on the fan pages on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. The prayers will cover everything from school, friends, and teachers to speaking words of life, destiny, and faith over our children this school year and beyond. The prayer will be posted by 5am (CST) so you can prayer over your child before they start their day if you wish!
  • All you have to do to participate is comment below “I’m in!” and then come back every day to pray the prayer and leave an “Amen” in the comments section.
  • Share the prayer of the day on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest!

Easy peasy! It will literally take 30 seconds of your day…but it will change the life of your child forever! But, You don’t have to be a mom to join this challenge! Every child needs someone to pray for them, encourage them, and just be in their corner. If you have a kiddo in your life that you want to step up and fill that spot for please join us! That child’s life will be forever impacted because you cared enough to make praying for them a priority!

We will see you tomorrow with the prayer for day 1 of our challenge!
