Prayers for Loving God's Word

There comes a point in every Believer's life where they must make a decision: Do they believe that the Word of God is true...or not?  Crucial to our sons' development as Christian men, this decision must first be modeled by mom and dad. Do we live and act and breathe as if every word we speak, every decision we make is influenced by God's Word?  Perhaps the first thing we should pray for this week is for God to move in our hearts and create in us a new love for His Word.  Then, as we live it out before our boys, we can truly know how important the Word is and pray passionately for God to develop a strong love for it in the hearts of our sons.

Day One: May our sons delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day & night (Psalm 1:2)

Day Two: May our sons remember God upon their bed, & meditate on Him in the watches of the night (Psalm 63:6)

Day Three:  May our sons meditate on God's precepts & fix their eyes on His ways (Psalm 119:15)

Day Four: May our sons think on God's ways they would turn their feet to His testimonies (Psalm 119:59)

Day Five: May our sons, like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk of God's Word (1 Peter 2:2)

Day Six: May our sons meditate on all that God has done & ponder the work of His hands (Psalm 143:5)

Day Seven: May our sons hide God's Word in their heart & not sin against Him (Psalm 119)


May our sons delight in God's decrees & not neglect His word. (Psalm 119:16)

May God open their eyes that they might see wonderful things in His law (Psalm 119:18)

May God cause them to understand the way of His precepts (Psalm 119:27)

May our sons hold fast to God's statutes & not be put to shame (Psalm 119:31)

Prayers for Wisdom

Wisdom seems to be one of our most basic needs.  Maybe holding second place on the scale of things I pray for my sons, right underneath loving the Lord with all their heart, mind, soul and strength.  The combination of those two are my greatest desire for my sons. This week, let's pray that our sons would fear the Lord, the beginning of wisdom, and that they would desire the wisdom of the Lord in all things.

(Studying hard :)

Day One: May our sons leave their simple ways, and live, and walk in the way of insight. (Proverbs 9:6)

Day Two: May our sons not follow after the wisdom of this world, for it is foolishness to God. (1 Cor 3:19)

Day Three: May our sons ask God for wisdom, Who gives generously without reproach... (James 1:5)

Day Four: May our sons have wisdom that is pure, peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy, impartial & sincere. (James 3:17)

Day Five: May our sons not be wise in their own eyes, but fear the LORD, & turn away from evil (Prov 3:7)

Day Six: May our sons learn to be quiet. For even a fool is considered wise his lips are closed (Prov 17:28)

Day Seven: May our sons keep God's rules & do them, for that will be their wisdom & understanding (Deut 4:5-6)


May our sons fear the Lord & gain wisdom; turn away from evil & gain understanding (Job 28:28)

May our sons hear the voice of wisdom as she cries aloud in the street (& ignore other voices) (Prov 1:20)

May our sons' ears to be attentive to wisdom & their hearts inclined to understanding (Prov 2:2)

May our sons keep sound wisdom & discretion, for they will be life for their soul... (Prov 3:21-22)

Prayers for Godly Friendships

Whether they're three, thirteen, thirty-three or full grown, our sons need godly influence in their lives.  This week, let's pray for the Lord to bring iron into our sons' lives...friends who will lead them to Him.

Day One:  Lord, keep our sons far from dishonest men who spread strife & whisperers who separate friends (Prov 16:28) 

Day Two:  Lord, may our sons love one another with brotherly affection, outdoing one another in showing honor (Rom 12:10) 

Day Three:  Lord, may our sons walk not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers (Psalm 1:1)

Day Four:  Lord, please bring friends to our sons who are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge & able to instruct 1 another (Rom 15:14)

Day Five:  Lord, may our sons look not only to their own interests, but also to the interests of others (Phil 2:4)

Day Six:  May our sons not be friends with the world, but friends with the living God (from James 4:4)

Day Seven:  Lord, bring iron to our sons...for as iron sharpens iron, one man sharpens another (Proverbs 27:17)

Welcome Friends!

My name is Brooke McGlothlin and I'm the girl behind Warrior Prayers.

If you've already been following the ministry of Warrior Prayers on Facebook or Twitter, you'll be thrilled to know that we now have a permanent home!

The Warrior Prayers blog will bring you a weekly prayer theme consisting of seven prayers (one for each day of the week). Each prayer will be based on specific scriptures designed to help you intercede for your boys in the areas they need prayer the most.

My heart, as a mother of two boys myself, is to walk through this together petitioning the King of kings and Lord of lords on behalf of our sons.  Raising godly men.  To learn more about the heart and passion behind Warrior Prayers, or how the ministry of Warrior Prayers got started, click here.

I hope you'll continue to join me in the Warrior Prayers conversation daily on Facebook and Twitter, through my weekly Twitter chat (#WarriorPrayers) and now once a week (Thursdays) on this blog (subscribe?)!

But there's more!
