Praying Proverbs Over Your Child
Each chapter is packed with wisdom from God! Read a chapter a day to your children for a whole month. You can start today. Whatever day of the month it is, start with that chapter. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
There is no greater calling, no greater obligation given to us as parents than that of raising godly children. I believe you will find the book of Proverbs covers most every situation or decision that could arise in your child’s life. The list here will help you find many of the answers quickly. Download the free printable today and keep it on hand so you have it when you need it.
With this list, you can easily identify areas your child struggles in. Consider having them find the verse that deals with the particular situation they are struggling with and write that verse out or memorize specific passages where they struggle.
