We live in dangerous times and there is a great need to keep our children safe from the dangers that prey on them.
Our children are God’s gift to us and He holds us responsible for their safety.
As innocent as they are, they believe in everything, and are thus open to every possibility. We must do them the greatest good by giving them not only physical cover, but also a spiritual and mental one.
Apart from leading them in prayer, we must dedicate ourselves to praying for them frequently, praying for their safety, their associations, and their growth.
Simple Children’s Prayers For Protection
Prayer To Protect My Child From Evil
Your word has promised me that no harm will overtake me. No disaster will come near my home. You said that you will command your angels concerning me and all that belongs to me to keep watch over us in all our ways; they will lift us up in their hands, so that we do not strike our foot against a stone. You have also said that you will never leave us nor forsake us. Therefore, I stand upon these promises for my child. Divert the evils aimed at him. Cover him under the shadow of your wings at all times, and shield him from all the vices of this age that corrupts and destroys, in Jesus name, Amen.”
Father, you promise that you are able to keep all who are entrusted to you. I am entrusting the life and soul of my child into your hands. Dearest Lord, let him be conscious of your presence not just around him but also within him. Let him know that he belongs to you, and thus is safe in your light. Make him a bright shining light breaking through the darkness of evil without being corrupted by it in a crooked and perverse generation, in Jesus name, Amen.”
Prayer For Protection For Newborn Baby
Lord, you have used me to bring this baby into the world. Just like Moses’ parents, Lord help me to see how beautiful it is and to give myself to both appreciate and nurture it after your desire and not mine. I plead the Blood of Jesus over this child for protection from sickness, diseases, death, and the dangers of this world. You promised me that because of the Blood, dangers will pass over and we will be healed. I fortify my household from satanic influence for accidents or affliction.
My baby will be healthy and strong. He/she will grow in sound health, in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with God and with men, in Jesus name, Amen.”

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.
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.”
