    LOVE this post! It is so important to be aware of Satan’s working and actively take a stand. Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Thanks Nicole. Actively taking a stance is right where we need to be. We have the ability to pray for the things our kids don’t yet know they’re going to face, It’s up to us to pray for that.

    Great post!!! And so very true! We have to be aware of spiritual battles ignoring them isn’t an option.

      Bobbi, this is everything. These babies need us to stand strong.

    Wonderful post, and so SO true! We must keep our eyes, ears, and hearts open, and remain steadfast in the fight for our children!

      Amanda, YES!! The battle is on and if we’re not engaging, then it’s one sided. I refuse!

    LOVE this post! I pinned it for future reference! My boys are still little but I still pray many of these things over them , especially breaking generational curses! Thanks for sharing this!

      Kate, I’m so happy! Yes, we need to pray at every opportunity we get. I prayed even before I knew my children. Those generational curses are deeply rooted which is why we to stay constantly rooted in Christ, who can break chains! Pray hard Mama!

    Love. This makes me want to stand and shout and pump my arms in the air! It actually reminds me of the movie War Room, even though it’s motherhood and not marriage. Same idea of standing strong and fighting. I really appreciate the verses you gave, thank you!

      Terryn, that movie makes you feel like a warrior, ready for battle!! That’s how I want to fight for them, that’s what they deserve.

      It’s true! Not just in the physical, but in the spiritual, in the mind, and in the heart.

    This is wonderful. Prayer does such amazing thing.

      It really does, Bailey. Prayer it vital.

  • Reply Karissa 2017 at 3:56 PM

    This is very timely for me! This past week I have been having anxiety/fear about things that I can’t control as it relates to my kids. The word God (and my husband lol) has been giving me is “trust”. So often I feel like I have to DO so much to protect my kids. And of course, as you said there are some things that we can do. But the action taken most by me should be on my knees. That is how I can actively trust God for my kids’ futures. Thanks for this post! It really ministered to me!

      Karissa, honestly, it’s a bit hard sometimes to say “this is an on my knees battle”. We want to actively be involved and to our fleshly understanding, that means “who do I have to go up against?”. The enemy wants us to stay in that place of understanding so we discount how important prayer and fighting with the Word of God is. We have to shake off that old way of thinking. I’ll be the first to admit, that’s hard to just shake off. But if we drop to our knees in faith, and just start praying fervent prayers, we’ll start to feel much more bold in doing so. Keep praying for those babies (& hubby), you’re striving and that’s what God has called you to do.

    Yes, yes, yes!!! Loving this. Right on sister.. time to fight for our children on our knees. I also liked what you said about teaching them at a young age. Maybe that can be a future post. Pinned and posted on my Facebook fan page. Tania from

      Tania! thank you for the inspiration! That’s what I love about this community of sisters encouraging each other. And yes, I teach my kids very bold concepts at an early age. I guess I feel like there’s no reason to hold back when talking about standing on God Word, after all the unbelieving world don’t hold back, why should I?

    So many battles are won through prayer! Good post, and useful verses. I am going to pin this!

    • Reply 2017 at 10:17 AM

      Amen! It’s the battle of the unseen that we also have to stay aware of.

  • Reply Alisa 2017 at 5:57 PM

    Jen this is right up my alley!! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to war on behalf of my kids. I start each day with strategic prayers to cover my family and every attack that would come against us. I love these verses you’ve listed! I’ll be featuring this on Salt & Light this week! Thanks for an amazing post!

      Oh Alisa, thank you so much, what an honor. I’ve been praying that God use my words and this space of mine. Fighting for my kids is something that I’ve realized is vital! When I read that God could break chains of bondage and generational curses, I knew I had to dig in deep. I’m so excited to share this post.

    Thank you so much for the insights. I am trying to help a very good friend of mine to understand the battle that she is facing. This gave me a lot of scripture and prayer that can help her and myself to pray about spiritual healing for not just her son, but her family and herself as well. Keep up the good work. God bless.

      Kim, I’m beyond humbled that you are using these resources to encourage your friend and her son & family. Although I don’t know her name, I will pray for “Kim’s Friend” and God will know who I refer to. Praying for her understanding and situation. I’ve found so often that once we know what we’re dealing with, it’s easier to form a battle plan. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you find recourses for. -Jen
