Prayer For Kids Behavior

What do you do when everything is going awry in your home? The kids just won’t listen or are fighting with each other, or simply not listening to you.

It’s hard to maintain composure when situations like this arise. That’s why we created for you a list of 30 awesome quick prayers you can say to help you turn to a higher and better source for strength and comfort – and that, of course, is God!

Keep this page bookmarked and when things start getting out of control, pick a prayer and say it. Repeat it and remain in God’s presence as you go about parenting. Walking in this way may just change some things, it certainly will help alter your focus from carrying this burden on your own to walking with God in your troubles.
