From Power of a Praying Parent:

I pray that You would pour out Your Spirit on our children this day and anoint them with for all that You've called them to be and do. Lord, You have said, "Let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called." (I Cor 7:24) May it be for our kids, according to Your word, that they never stray from what You have called them to be and do, or try to be something they are not.

Deliver them from any evil plan of the devil to rob them of life, to steal away their uniqueness and giftedness, to compromise the path You've called them to walk, or to destroy the person You've created them to be. May they not be a follower of anyone but You, but may they be leaders of people into Your kingdom. Help them to grow into a complete understanding of their authority in Jesus, while retaining a submissive and humble spirit. May the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control grow in them daily. May they find their identity in You, view themselves as Your instruments, and know that they are complete in You.

Give them a vision for their lives when setting goals for the future and a sense of purpose about what You've called them to do. Help them to see themselves as You do - from their future, and not their past. May they be convinced that Your thoughts toward them are thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give them a future and a hope. (Jer 29:11) Teach them to look to You as their hope for the future.

May their commitment to being who You created them to be enable them to grow daily in confidence and Holy Spirit boldness.
