172 Scriptures Mentioning “Child”—26 - 30.  Prayer at end.

In one Internet search for the word child, 172 passages were listed.
Here are five of them.

It may be interesting to see the context in which this word is placed.  It may be worthwhile to ponder the passage and sort out the meaning of this word among the others in any passage.  It may be surprising how many thoughts will pop up unheralded to stretch our thinking a bit in God’s direction.

Does the word refer to a specific child?  If so, who is it?  What was this child’s place in the world? 

Is the scripture one that brings joy?  Sadness?  Contemplation?
Does “child” refer to the Saviour in some of the entries?
What does “child” mean to you in one passage or another?

In the pro-life world, a child takes a primary center place.  That is where new human life begins, with a child, a baby. 

Judges 13:12
And Manoah said, Now let thy words come to pass. How shall we order the child, and how shall we do unto him?

Judges 13:24
And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the LORD blessed him.

Ruth 4:16
And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it.

1 Samuel 1:11
And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.

1 Samuel 1:22
But Hannah went not up; for she said unto her husband, I will not go up until the child be weaned, and then I will bring him, that he may appear before the LORD, and there abide for ever.


Lord, direct our thoughts to You as we ponder these sentences from Your word, about children.  Lead us to pray for children – in general, those in the womb, some that we know, our own, our friends’ or neighbors’.  Lead us, Lord, to humble prayer for all children
