How should you pray for your kids? There are numerous things to pray for, but what are the most important? At the top of the list should be salvation. Pray that God would save them from their sins. How? By repenting of their sin and placing their faith in the work Jesus did on their behalf when He lived a perfect life, died as a sacrifice for their sins, and rose again from the grave. Specifically, you can pray they will “confess with their mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in their heart that God raised Him from the dead” (Romans 10:9). Also pray they will “believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing [they] may have life in his name” (John 20:31). And pray that the Father would draw your kids to His Son, because no one can come to Jesus unless the Father draws Him (John 6:44).
