In this wicked world, we must protect our household — The family and our kids.
And that’s because our children’s conduct can either bring blessings or shame to the family.
Sadly, even when we try, we can not always look after our children’s actions.
That’s where bible verses for the safety of your children come in.
God is the ultimate watcher of the earth.
He directs us each day with Angels and can protect us from the wicked arms of the devil.
Therefore, we must seek God’s protection over our children’s every step.
While growing up, I had a very headstrong elder brother.
He was like the black sheep in the family.
At a very tender age, he was already involved with cultism.
The kind of friends he mingles with could tell more about his new behaviors.
This really troubled my mum, and she was always scared about his safety.
But my mum is a God believing mother.
She Knew only God changes the hearts of any human being on earth.
She continually prayed for the safety of my brother.
Regrettably, she didn’t live long enough to see the man my brother has become.
He is now one of the best people you can have around you.
He has a young family with blessed and beautiful children.
If you are struggling with your son or daughter, there are bible verses for protecting your child.
You can trust in God to always guide your children and safeguard their path.
I have put together bible verses for protection of child in this wicked world
Read and be blessed.

God Protection over your children (Edification)
1. It starts with you
Getting married and setting up a family is often not an easy task
You are never too sure about the kind of kids that God blesses you with
You neither know their qualities nor what the future holds for them
But, even when you can’t ascertain their future, you can shape them
Protecting your child Starts with discipline
The scripture says,
Train up a child in the way he should go,
[a]And when he is old he will not depart from it.
It is quite common to see parents scared of disciplining their children
They are afraid of the pain and suffering that they would go through
But, if you want the best for you kids, you must teach them and discipline them when they are wrong
2. Be prayerful
It is challenging to train a child on your own
You do not give life, and therefore cannot control it
We must pray to God — the giver of life and children
God knows your child more than you do
Most importantly, he can stiffen or make softer the hearts of you kids
So, be prayerful
Ask God for divine security over your children
Ask God for protection over your household
3. Choose their friends
We’ve all been there in the past and understand the impact that friends had on our behaviors when growing up
It is your role as a mother or father to nurture your kids from the beginning
It is essential to choose their friends mainly because they could easily be misled
The scriptures say,
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
