Prayer is also a way we can give thanks for the blessings that our children have brought to our lives and the blessings of future generations.
Sometimes, we have the opportunity to pray with our adult children, while other times we can only pray for them privately. Ultimately, the choice to pray for them and how to pray is an intentional choice we much make. I have often said that prayer is the most important tool in the Christian toolbelt. However, it is at the same time the most underutilized.
Let's be intentional about praying for our children and intentional about using that most important tool in our Christian toolbelt. Let me share with you 7 things I pray over my adult children.
The more I pray these 7 things over my adult children, the more I realized I need to pray all these things over myself as well.

What are you praying over your children?

I have prayed SO many verses over my adult children (ages 34 and 30). Right now I am praying God would replace the heart of stone with a heart of flesh in my oldest. Her heart has been hardened toward God and toward me. I hear of so many similar stories. I've seen how my down-on-my-knees prayers have made a great difference in my son's life. Perseverance in our praying is often required. Great post!

Bev, that verse, Ezekiel 36:26, "And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh." That's such a great verse to pray over prodigals! I too have a prodigal whose heart has been hardened towards the things of God.
Thank you for this post. Yes, our parenting has only begun when our children grow up and then there are grandchildren to pray for. So much to pray for and about and how important to walk the walk before them so they see that God answers prayer in my own life. And God does answer and show Himself faithful and True.

I love that, Ellen —> "So much to pray for and about and how important to walk the walk before them so they see that God answers prayer in my own life." So true! I'm so glad we serve at God Who answers prayers and shows Himself faithful and True, always!

I pray for my children and grandchildren every day. While I may not be able to enter into every situation, nor even be aware of details, the Lord is always fully aware and responds to our prayers. Beautifully encouraging!
