Today we will be dealing with Bible verses and prayer points to help your son become a man of God. Prayer is the blessing of motherhood for a child. When you know the Lord has called your son into the ministry to serve, you should not relax in the place of prayer.
While mentorship is very important to help them grow well, prayer will keep their mind intact to the things of God. When praying to help your son become a man of God, there are several things that you will be praying for, they include:
Pray For Them To Be Men of Integrity
Nothing beats integrity. Joseph was a man of deep integrity. Even without knowing God, a man of integrity tends to fear God and try to do what is right. Being a man of God is more than having the spiritual gifts and sure calling of God.
It is more about how you relate with people based on what wants for them. There are men of God whose words and attitude have done nothing but create disparity in the body of Christ. There are men of God who can’t keep to their words and they have created problems by their inability to do things the right way.
Yes, your child might have the spiritual gifts to become a man of God, but he also needs the right heart to do it.
They Will Be Servant and Leaders Conveniently
To some men of God, it is easier for them to lead than follow. Being a man of God doesn’t directly put you in charge, there are times that you need to listen to the people you are leading.
Some men of God are filled with pride that they trash the opinion of their followers. They believe what they say is the best and it must be followed. Also to God. Some are quick to forget that it is God who has called them to lead His people. They even go against the instructions of God.
God Should Grant Them Patience
Moses was a great man of God but he lacked the spirit of patience at one point. He was angered by the behaviour of the people of Isreal and he reacted. In the end, he could not enter the promise of land.
Among all things created by God, humans are the most difficult to lead. That’s why anyone who has the calling to lead humans must be very calm so as not to misbehave.

For it has been written, if anyone lacks wisdom let him ask from God that gives liberally without blemish. I pray that you grant him the wisdom that is required in the name of Jesus.
