One of the most important skills for a Christian to grow is discernment. Discernment is what tells us which path to take when we’re not sure. It’s the skill to recognize the voice of God when we need it the most. It’s necessary for survival in some cases. That’s why I’ve written this prayer for your child to grow in discernment. I hope you use it and find it helpful.
I pray you would give discernment and revelation to (name of child).
Help him to love and trust You with all his heart.
May he acknowledge You in all his ways and lean not on his own understanding, but seek Your voice and obey it.
Put a hunger within him for wisdom. As he seeks it, pour it out upon him abundantly.
Teach him what Your voice sounds like so he’d hear it in the day of adversity.
If he walks off the path You’ve paved for him, let him lose his peace until he returns to Your will.
Thanks for all You do.
In Jesus’ name, Amen. Read more
