9 Pure Prayers For Adult Children

Offering a prayer for adult children asks the Lord God to watch over your children when you’re not physically next to them. He can steer them, protect them and guide them when they feel lost.

Adult children can be difficult to pray for. We want them to make good decisions and lead successful lives, but we also recognize their free will and the fact that they are not always going to do what we want. So how do we pray for them in a way that is both effective and honoring to God?

Have your prayer spread with the prayer request.
