A Child’s Prayer of Salvation

Last year I wrote a series of 8 children’s poems; as a result of thinking about the faithless prayers that I prayed as a young kid. It is my heart’s desire to teach my children and others, how to pray according to the word of God….or effectual and fervent prayers. When I was a kid, I remember my siblings and I praying: “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.” The problem with this prayer is that it’s inconsistent with what the word of God says. Isaiah 26:3 (CSB) says: You will keep in perfect peace the mind [that is] dependent [on You], for it is trusting in You. Remember that our souls are made up of our minds, will and emotions): so He has us covered.  In Psalm 91:16, God declares that He will reward His followers with long lifePsalm 118:17 says that we shall live and not die. The infamous prayer/poem mentioned above sounds good; but it’s full of unbelief and therefore, ineffective.

It is my sincere hope that all parents teach their children how to pray effectively. This week’s Children’s poem is a Prayer of Salvation.

Please feel free to download this poem and share with other families. As always, God bless you, have an excellent week and I’ll see you again real soon!

I Trust YHWH/God

YHWH/God is EVERYTHING to me. He is the love of my life and the center of my world. If I didn’t know Him, the first thing I’d do is get to know Him. My recommendation for anyone who doesn’t know Him, is to do the same. It’s a decision that you will never regret.

At a time when people are uncertain and unsure;

my gaze is fixed on the one I adore.

The Alpha, the Omega, the One who does not fail;

You’re my stability and the One, who causes me to prevail.

Despite the circumstances going on around me,

I’m joyful, full of praise, because You made me free!

You’re the truth.. my assurance..I trust You above all;

Even if the world seems to be at a complete stall.

My faith, my hope, my trust is in You…

The God who has consistently and faithfully come through.

I take comfort in knowing that nothing surprises You;

You saw the end from the beginning; and provided for this too.

Every knee has to bow to the name above all names;

even this virus and fear, has to do the same.

Thank you precious Father, for all you have done,

for me to possess your promises, through the death of your son.

 

Eternal Blessings,

Yonka

Children’s Prayer of Provision

2 Corinthians 9:8 (TPT) – Yes, God is more than ready to overwhelm you with every form of grace, so that you will have more than enough of everything—every moment and in every way. He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do. 

2 Corinthians 9:10 – 11 (TPT) – This generous God who supplies abundant seed for the farmer, which becomes bread for our meals,is even more extravagant toward you. First he supplies every need, plus more. Then he multiplies the seed as you sow it, so that the harvest of your generosity will grow. 11 You will be abundantly enriched in every way as you give generously on every occasion, for when we take your gifts to those in need, it causes many to give thanks to God.

Psalm 84:11 – For the Lord God is brighter than the brilliance of a sunrise! Wrapping himself around me like a shield, he is so generous with his gifts of grace and glory. Those who walk along his paths with integrity will never lack one thing they need, for he provides it all!

 

Heavenly Father,

2 Corinthians 9:8 says You give me way more than I need;

So that I can bless others  (according to Genesis 12:2) and sow more seed.

You are so generous, you give me more than enough,

Wisdom, family & friends, food and cool stuff.

Direct me to the people who came to you in prayer,

And I thank you for the honor of being the answer you’d prepare.

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

Children’s Prayer of Protection

Psalm 121:7-8 (TPT) – He will keep you from every form of evil or calamity as he continually watches over you. 8 You will be guarded by God Himself. You will be safe when you leave your home and safely you will return. He will protect you now, and he’ll protect you forevermore!

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for knowing that I would sometimes feel fear;

And for assuring me that, You’d always be here.

What a relief is Psalm 121: 7- 8…

It says: You guard me Yourself! This makes me feel great!

You promised to protect me wherever I go,

And it brings me comfort, just to know….

That you are the ultimate promise keeper.

In  Yeshua’s name,

Amen

Children’s Prayer for Courage

Deuteronomy 31:6 (MEV) – Be strong and of a good courage. Fear not, nor be afraid of them, for the Lord your God, it is He who goes with you. He will not fail you, nor forsake you.”

2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV) – For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Heavenly Father,

You promised to be with me wherever I go,

Deuteronomy 31:6 tells me so.

You said You’ll never fail, or leave me;

So I can be strong, courageous and  worry free.

2 Timothy 1:7 says:

I have power, love and my mind is sound;

So I’m moving forward and taking ground.

No one can stop me according to Joshua 1:5

I’m rejoicing in You &  blessed to be alive!

 

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

Children’s Prayer for Peace In Jerusalem

Psalm 122:6 (TPT) – Pray and seek for Jerusalem’s peace, for all who love her will prosper!

Heavenly Father,

I love Jerusalem because you do,

I pray for its peace and prosperity too.

Give its leaders wisdom, to lead as you will,

And the people the heart,

to be the city on top of the hill.

 

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

Children’s Prayer for Leaders & Nation

1 Timothy 2:1 – 2 (TPT) – Most of all, I’m writing to encourage you to pray with gratitude to God. Pray for all men with all forms of prayers and requests as you intercede with intense passion. 2 And pray for every political leader and representative, so that we would be able to live tranquil, undisturbed lives, as we worship the awe-inspiring God with pure hearts. 

Proverbs 21:1 (TPT) – It’s as easy for God to steer a king’s heart for his purposes as it is for him to direct the course of a stream.

Job 12:23 (AMP) – “He makes nations great, and He destroys them; He enlarges nations, and leads them away [captive].

 

Heavenly Father,

I pray for our leaders, to hear and obey your voice;

Concerning our nation, so they’d make the right choice…

To honor You alone; and work in unity,

So the people can experience a time of jubilee.

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

Where do you live?

Reserved parking

As I was sitting outside of the Music Academy yesterday, waiting for my son’s piano lesson to end, my attention was drawn to the Reserved Parking sign above. I thought about a prophecy that the Father had given to my husband and me more than a few years ago. What God said that He would do in our lives took a lot of faith. I remember driving in our downtown area one day; and I said to God: How can I believe you for that, when I can’t even believe for a parking space? It was at that moment that I knew that that would be my starting point for building and exercising my faith in His abilities. I had started to believe God for close parking spaces wherever I went. I wasn’t being lazy. I just had a bunch of small kids; so closer was better in my line of thinking. Every where I would go, I began to get close parking spaces. It didn’t matter if the place was packed. There was nearly ALWAYS a close parking space for me. It happened so regularly that other moms who went to the same programs that I took my children to, expected me to always be parked close.

As I focused on this sign, I began to see that because I am a citizen (or tenant) of the Kingdom of Heaven, there is  ALWAYS a reserved parking space for me wherever I go. Earlier this week, I was thinking about how there have been a number of  powerful and ruling  kingdoms in the earth that have come and gone; but the Kingdom of Heaven, introduced to us by Yeshua, is the most powerful kingdom and it will forever stand (Daniel 2:44). Although our physical bodies live on the earth, our spirit man is seated in heavenly places with Yeshua Messiah (Ephesians 2:6). As people of God, it is of great benefit to live from and by our spirit; rather than by our physical senses. Remember that we are spirits with souls, that live in a body; which means we should be living from the inside out; and not the outside in.

A Children’s Prayer of Praise & Thanksgiving

Psalm 100:4 -5 (TPT)  – You can pass through his open gates with the password of praise. Come right into his presence with thanksgiving. Come bring your thank offering to Him and affectionately bless His beautiful name! 5 For the Lord is always good and ready to receive you. He’s so loving that it will amaze you— so kind that it will astound you! And He is famous for His faithfulness toward all. Everyone knows our God can be trusted, for He keeps His promises to every generation!

Father,

It’s my honor and pleasure to give you praise,

The Almighty, Omnipotent, Ancient of Days.

You are the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end,

The Omniscient One who created the seas and the wind.

I thank you O Lord, for Your mercy and grace,

And for being with me, know matter what I face.

Your word (2 Corinthians 2:14) says You always cause me to win,

You’re the One on whom, I can always depend.

Thank you O Lord for all that You’ve done;

And for the ultimate sacrifice of Your son.

I love You and need you more than air,

And I thank you precious Father, for always being there.

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen
