Our children are growing up so quickly! It seems like just yesterday they were innocents who needed our guidance and protection. Now, they’re all grown up and starting out on their own lives. At first, it can be a bit daunting to see them go off on their own and make their own decisions, but we know that they’re strong and capable. We just hope that they make the right ones.
My son is an adult now. What do I do about prayer for him?
When we were raising our children, it was natural for us to pray for them. It was also natural for us to want to know what God had planned for them. Does the same thing still apply when our children become adults?
Yes, prayer continues to be important for adults. In fact, according to a study by LifeWay Research, almost three-quarters of all Christians pray for their adult children at least once a month. That being said, there are some things that you should keep in mind when praying for your son or daughter.
One thing to keep in mind is that prayer shouldn’t be used as a way to control or manipulate your child. Instead, prayer should be used as a way to connect with your child and share your concerns and love.
Another thing to keep in mind is that prayer should never come at the expense of your relationship with your child. If you feel like you’re dominating or controlling the conversation during prayer time, it’s probably not going well. Letting go and setting boundaries can help ensure that your prayers are respectful and helpful.
Ultimately, it’s important that you pray for your son or daughter in a way that is comfortable and relevant for them. Praying together as
When should I start praying for my son?
Prayer for my son is important from the moment he is born. I believe that Heavenly Father wants us to reach out and minister to our children, even before they can understand what we are doing. In his book “The Purpose Driven Life,” Rick Warren says, “Praying for your children begins with praying for yourself.” We need to be sure that our prayers are directed at Heavenly Father and not just ourselves.
There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to when to start praying for your son, but I would recommend starting as soon as you can. My husband and I have found it helpful to pray together for our son morning and night. We also have a family prayer that we recite each week. This prayer helps us remember how important it is to pray for one another.
Prayer for my son is an important part of his life, but it’s only the first step in a lifelong journey of growing closer to Heavenly Father.
How should I pray for my son?
Prayer for our son is a delicate balance of patience and encouragement. Our desire should be for him to know God, to grow in His love and to be used by Him in the world. We want him to come into His kingdom with all He has, completely fulfilled. We should pray for wisdom and discernment as he makes decisions, for grace and mercy when we make mistakes, and for protection from harm.
My son is 20 years old, and I worry about him
I worry about my son all the time. He’s 20 years old, and I don’t know what he’s doing out there on the streets.
I prayed for him when he was born, and I continue to pray for him every day. I want him to be safe, and I don’t know how to protect him from the dangers of the world.
I know that God has a plan for my son, and I trust Him implicitly. I know that He will keep him safe, no matter what happens.
I hope that my prayers will help to keep my son safe, and I will keep praying for him until he comes home safely to me. Thank you for listening.

In Jesus’ name, amen.
Dear God, thank you for blessing my son with a healthy body and mind. Please guide him as he makes decisions and takes on challenges in his life. Help him to recognize when he is feeling overwhelmed, and give him the strength to keep going despite difficult circumstances. Amen.
