Pray for Their Heart
Ask God to give your children a happy, cheerful heart. Pray that they’d come to faith early and would trust easily and completely in Him. (Proverbs 15:13; Psalm 28:7)
Pray for Their Hands
Pray that they would be diligent in their work and that their hands would not be idle, but that God would bless, confirm, and establish the work of their hands. (Ecclesiastes 9:10; Ecclesiastes 11:6; Proverbs 10:4-5)

SOME MORE SCRIPTURES FOR YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN – KJV
- Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6).
- I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walk in truth (3 John 1:4 ).
- Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven (Matthew 18:10).
- And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children (Isaiah 54:13).
At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea (Matthew 18:1-6).
Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me (Mark 9:37).
“Train Up The Child In The Ways Of The Lord” (Proverbs 22:6)
