Declarations for Children

Declarations for Children

Declarations are just as important for children to speak forth over themselves as they are for parents to speak over their children. Training your children to decree life over themselves equips them for victory, not only in the day to day, but for decades to come.

I encourage you to confront death spewing forth from your child’s mouth. If he says, “I’m stupid,” don’t let it slide. If she says, “I’m ugly,” don’t just shrug it off. Denying the lies of the enemy yourself is one thing; Teaching your children to speak truth over themselves is another. Train them to open their mouths and say the words.

Our family has a dry erase board in our dining room. In addition to writing what’s for dinner each day (and thereby avoiding answering the question over and over), we write one of the declarations from the Word. Before we pray over our dinner, we say the declaration out loud together. Yeah, sometimes it’s a bit cheesy, but the Word is seed, and we’re planting that seed in our hearts daily.

However you choose to incorporate it, we encourage you to make declarations a part of your family culture.

You can find declarations all throughout the Word of God. Once you start looking for them, you’ll be surprised at just how abundant they are. Here are 11 great declarations for children taken from The Passion Translation to get you started.

1. I have more than enough because You are more than enough.

2 Corinthians 9:8 TPT – Yes, God is more than ready to overwhelm you with every form of grace, so that you will have more than enough of everything—every moment and in every way. He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do.
