Prayers for Children


Melissa Carbone-Wong, a waiting mother posted the following image below to lift up all the children and the parents in prayer.  Starting Sunday, February 26, 2012, there will be nightly prayer vigils at 7PM Eastern Standard Time, which would be 4PM Pacific Standard Time.  Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, whether you drive or whether you are working, spend a minute or two to pray for all the children that need to come home.  Pray for all the anxious parents that they will trust God, and find peace in their hearts and certainty that their children will come home soon. 

I would like to thank Melissa for providing the image below.

To start off, here is my prayer...

Dear Heavenly Father,
May your name be praised.
You are the maker of heaven and earth,
and your glory is displayed everywhere.

We lift up to you the children you have given to us,
Those children not of wombs but of our hearts,
Not of near but across the ocean,
May your wings carry them all towards the waiting homes.

May you bless all the waiting mothers and fathers,
As they count day by day,
As they behold the pictures of their beloved children,
May you hear their cries and waiting that seems eternity.

May they have faith in your providence,
May they have faith in themselves,
That no amount of turbulence and waves will shake their resolve,
That those who don't know you will come to trust you.

You are the God who created the universe at your command,
We believe you can move the hearts of those in authority in Korea,
That they will hear the voices of those children that need to come home,
That they will hear the cries of waiting parents that have anguished so long.

That their hearts will see duties beyond their daily affairs,
That they would make the right decisions on behalf of the voiceless children.
That they will bring joyful union of families with children,
And let the people witness the faithfulness of the Lord and give thanks.

In the precious name of Jesus we pray.  Amen.


  1. That is an amazing prayer. Thank you for calling out to God on the behalf of our children and our breaking hearts. I trust in God's plan and I know that He hears our cry. He is with the broken hearted and he keeps us close to his heart. What a blessing that is.

    Thank you for blessing us with your words of encouragement, friend.

  2. Wow. That is beautiful. Amen!

  4. We'll be praying in the Midwest! Thank you for giving us a voice!

  5. Just prayed for all of you waiting and for all of the children in Korea. Prayed for the government as well. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-8

  6. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

  7. Wow! Thank you so much for this prayer. It is perfect!!! I needed this and I am praying to hard that the process starts this week. Can't wait to hear joy and praise on this site when it does. Blessings to all.
