8 Powerful Prayers for My Teenage Son

Each one of our children requires daily prayer. This collection of powerful prayers for a teenage son gives examples of prayers you can say for your children.

1. Psalm 34:18

God of Peace, I declare an overflow of Your Spirit in my teenage son’s life. As a parent, I sense that something may be wrong internally with him, but as someone who is only human, I may lack understanding. Lord, I know that You are close to the brokenhearted and You save those who are crushed in spirit. Therefore, I will not be afraid, because You are with my son, have Your divine way in his heart, mind and soul, Amen.

2. Proverbs 1:8-9

Precious God, help my teenage son to hear the voice of his parents, I pray that You soften his heart and his ears so that he may live under the guidance that seeks to help him flourish. I pray that he listens to his father’s instruction and does not forsake his mother’s teaching. They are a garland to grace his head and a chain to adorn his neck. Please clothe my child in wisdom so that he will not be like the world, Amen.

3. Isaiah 40:29-31

Beautiful One, You give strength to the weary and You increase the power of the weak! Even my teenage son shall grow tired and weary, and young men shall stumble and fall, but those who hope in You shall renew their strength. My son’s strength shall be renewed, in Jesus’ name. He will soar on wings like eagles; he will run and not grow weary, he will walk and not be faint, Amen.

4. 1 Timothy 4:12

Precious Lord, I pray for my teenage son, I pray that although he is young, do not let anyone look down on him because of his age. I declare that he will set an example for believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. I pray that You keep him on Your righteous path so that his life may be an example to all around him. Father, I pray against any thoughts that he has that may hinder him from his destiny – thoughts regarding his age, his identity, and his mistakes, Amen.

5. Philippians 4:6-7

Lord of All, I declare that my teenage son will not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, he will present his requests to You. I pray that he does not turn to man for his solutions, but let his heart continually turn to You. Fill him with Your peace that transcends all understanding and guard his heart and his mind in Christ Jesus, Amen.

6. Psalm 23:4

Hallelujah to Your matchless name! I lift You up because You are God alone! As my son may walk through the valley of the shadow of death, he will fear no evil for You are with him; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort him. Thank You in advance for being the comfort that my teenage son needs. In today’s society, people are turning to the wrong things for comfort without realizing that the void that they seek to fill or heal can only be filled or healed by You, Amen.

7. Deuteronomy 31:6

Way Maker, I pray that my son will be strong and courageous. He will stand firm on Your Word and resist the ploys of the enemy. He will not be afraid or terrified because of those against him, for You, my God, are with Him. You will never leave him nor forsake him. Thank You for turning Your countenance towards him. Let Your favor continue to rest upon him, Amen.

8. Psalm 139:16

My God, Promise Keeper, Your word says that before we were born or even formed, we were already written about in a scroll in heaven. Therefore, despite what I see or what my teenage son is experiencing right now, there is a greater word about him in heaven. There is a prophecy about him that I know by Your grace and by Your authority shall come to pass. Instead, let all legal rights that the adversary has over my son be destroyed, and let Your Word come to fruition in his life, Amen.
