12 Scriptural Truths to Speak Life Over Your Children

So today, I want to talk about why this is so important, what kinds of things we should be speaking over them, and a brand-new book for children that will help you set it all into practice in a fun way.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SPEAKING LIFE OVER YOUR KIDS

Why is it so important that we set thought and effort into the things we speak over our children? Why should we guard our mouths, carefully choose our words, and intentionally speak and pray life-giving truths over them?

God’s Word tells us over and over again that our terms have incredible power. We can use them to bring blessings and life or curses and demise . What positions of responsibility!

Here are just a few of the things that the Bible has to say about our words:

SCRIPTURES ABOUT THE POWER OF OUR WORDS


Proverbs 18:21

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.”

Proverbs 12:18

“There is one whose rash words are like sword thrustings, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

Proverbs 15:4

“A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it transgresses the spirit.”

James 3:5

“So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire! ”

Psalm 19:14

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.”

Proverbs 4:23

“Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.”

We have such a wonderful privilege as Christian mothers to speak life over our kids. And the more we do it , not only are our prayers heard by God, but our children hear them, as well. And the more they are fed a steady diet of God’s promises and truths in their own lives, the more they will be implanted in their hearts .

Unsure of where to start or what to say? Here are a few examples of things to speak over your children:
