I have prayed without ceasing for my children throughout the years. One of the promises I believe God gave me for them, and a promise I have claimed again and again in prayer, is Exodus 15:1-2. This passage is the song of Moses as he exults in God's deliverance of the Hebrew children when the Red Sea was parted and they crossed over on dry ground.
As pharaoh's army pursued and sought to keep God's children from getting safely to the Promised Land of His blessing, the sea's walls collapsed, the enemy was supernaturally destroyed and God's people rejoiced: "I will sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously! He has thrown the horse and his rider into the sea! The Lord is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation" (Ex. 15:1-2).
The promise God seemed to give me from this ancient hymn of joy was that He would supernaturally overthrow anything or anyone seeking to hinder my children from being in His place of blessing for their lives. God has a promise in His Word for your children, too. Ask Him to give it to you so you can claim it in prayer.
