Praying God’s Word for Your Child’s Identity in Christ
It is a loaded word nowadays. Identity was a struggle when we were children, especially in middle and high school. Now our kids not only navigate those challenges, but music, social media, shows, friends, and sometimes even teachers telling them that their identity is fluid and ever-changing.
However, from the nightly news, we know this view is not true or helpful. At a 2018 Tedx Talk, Dr. Jean Twenge presented statistics that show from 2010-2015, since cell phone and social media use has risen among teens, their depression and unhappiness rates have more than doubled. Obviously, the messages our children receive from those sources aren’t leading to a strong sense of self and identity.
What can we do to help our kids form a healthy identity?
We need to point them to God. The one unchanging constant in their lives.
In this prayer guide by Tara L. Cole, pray for God to work in your children’s hearts to:
- Have a solid view of the character of God
- Believe they are His masterpiece
- Understand their true worth and value
- Help them have confidence in God’s plan for them
- Find peace in belonging to God
- Know they were chosen by God to bring glory to God
- And more!
With biblical teaching on identity and self-worth, scripture-inspired prayers, and space to journal using our Think, Pray, Praise method of daily prayer, this digital prayer guide is perfect for the busy mom who needs God to move!
Join me today as we pray God’s powerful Word back to Him on behalf of our children using key verses and passages from the Bible. God’s Word is living and active (Hebrews 4:12) and won’t return void. It will do exactly what God wants it to do in the hearts of our children (Isaiah 55:11). Pray it confidently, and be filled with faith in the God Who is able to mold your children into the men and women He’s called them to be.
