Biblical Prayers for Disciples

I caught this list on a post while doing research.  I thought it was excellent as a guide for us, as parents, to pray for our children.  As parents, we realize that we are our children’s primary disciplers, and they are our primary disciples so that Christ may be formed in them(Gal. 4:19).

Obviously, these prayers are applicable to any follower of Christ. Please pray also for your brothers and sisters in Christ.
