A Prayer for a Boy

During my study of the Book of Daniel I wrote down all his positive personality traits, which I will share here shortly. I started thinking of my grandson David and praying that he would become a man of God like Daniel. As I was praying I had an inspiration using different Bible characters.

I am attaching a Word file so you can print and use. Write the name of a boy you want to pray for.

This is the prayer:

(Insert name here) my heart’s desire and prayer for you is that you will…

Have a listening ear, like Samuel

Have a praying spirit, like Daniel

Have a tender and loving heart, like John

Have a forgiving spirit, like Joseph

Find grace in the eyes of the Lord, like Noah

Be obedient and faithful, like Abraham

Be a preacher of the Gospel, like Paul

Have the patience of Job

Grow in favor with God and men, like Jesus

Be ready to answer God’s calling, like Isaiah

Weep for the sins of his people, like Jeremiah

Know the Scriptures, like Timothy

Be meek and tenacious, like Moses

Never lose faith in his dreams, like Caleb

Decide to serve God, like Joshua

Know to confess his sins, like King David

Win the battles with praise to God, like Jehoshaphat

Be an evangelist, like Phillip

Be a joy and delight, like John the Baptizer

Walk with God, like Enoch

Be a peacemaker, like Isaac

Be a loyal friend, like Jonathan

Be an encourager, like Barnabas

Be full of faith and the Holy Spirit, like Stephen

Be a re-builder of torn down walls like, Nehemiah

Be a fisher of men, like Andrew and Peter

Always have a tender heart for the things of God

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
