Spiritual Warfare For My Child

Parenting does not only require being able to watch over your child physically, but being able to rise to any challenge that may threaten them spiritually. This is why each parent must be sound spiritually.

The Bible has said in 2Corithians 10:4 that, The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.

Nehemiah 4:14, talking about what we should do, adds this: After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”

Hence, as a parent, it is your responsibility to “fight” for the destiny and wellbeing of your child and your entire family.

Here is a prayer of spiritual warfare that you can pray over your child or children.

“Father, thank you for my child and my family. I thank you for the grace to be in a position where I can decree your purpose through prayer and be sure it will come to pass. I have confidence that whatever I bind on earth is bound in heaven, and whatever I loose on earth is loosed in heaven. I am convinced that the greater one lives in me and I will not fear what the enemy can do to my family or me.

I lift up my child in prayers right now. I command every onslaught of the enemy against him in any way to fail. The Bible says no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against me in judgment, I shall condemn. Therefore, I decree today: no weapon formed against my child shall prosper. I condemn any utterance meant to bring them down. My child shall live and not die. He shall not be in the wrong place at the wrong time. He will not be caught in wrong company.

I shield is heart and his mind by the Blood of Jesus from every demonic manipulation. I bind the spirit of rebellion and stubbornness influencing children in the world. It will not come near my child now or ever. The chains of addictions or other negative habits will not hold him, but he will be free and live as a model of Christ everywhere he goes, in Jesus mighty name, Amen.”
