Scriptures & Declarations for Children

Declarations based on Specific Scriptures:

My child, ________________, is blameless and pure, without fault in a crooked and perverse generation.  

(Phil 2:15)

My child, ________________, is not foolish, but understands what the Lord’s will is.  He/she is a child of light that has nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness. He/she does not give the devil a foothold. He/she takes back whatever ground has been given over to the enemy and walks completely with God.  (Ephesians 4, 5)

My child, ________________, is born of God and has overcome the world. He/she believes Jesus is the son of God and his faith overcomes the world. My child, ________________, chooses to do what is right so she/he is a child of God.  (1 John)

My child, ________________, remains in God and does what is right – she/he is a child if God and the Father’s love is lavished upon him/her.  (1 John)

My child, ________________, is not controlled by his/her sinful nature, she/he does not live according to his/her sinful nature or have her/his mind set on what that nature desires, but he/she lives in accordance with the Spirit and has his/her mind set on what the Spirit desires, for the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace – My child, _______________, has life and peace. He/she is more than a conqueror and nothing will be able to separate him from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  (Romans 8)

My child, ________________, has the mind of Christ and wants what God wants. My child, ________________, is hungry to be authentically close to God and God’s presence satisfies every one of My child’s, _______________, needs.  (Romans 12:2;  Philippians 2:5;  2 Timothy 1:7;  Psalm 16:11)

In this section are scriptures that can be used to pray for, and declare over, our children.  Utilizing scriptural promises over our children is very smart.  These are the promises God gave us in His Word.  He gave them; we are receiving them.  We are taking our cue from God and what He said.  We are basing our prayers on His Words, and we are using His Words to declare His will and His power over the situation.   God used His Words to create the world (Genesis 1).  

We can use His Words also, speaking them over our children to bring God's power into our children's lives.  These scriptures can be personalized by putting our children's names into the scripture and spoken over our children at least once a day, if not more often.  We use scriptures when praying for and speaking over our children because God said, "...I am watching over my word to perform it" (Jeremiah 1:12 KJV).
