These are scriptures to pray over children. When I wrote Praying for the Children, I actually had my children in mind.

I wanted to cover them in prayer before they go off into the world alone. I wanted them to be able to make the right decisions, and stay away from all that was evil. I then realized that all children was included in the prayer.

You can also pray these scriptures for your unborn child. If you would like to pray for a specific child, just replacing the word children will personalize it.
