Being a nanny is humble work. It’s right and good that you pray for the nanny in your life.
There will be many days when they feel lost, exhausted, and frustrated. Their job will not earn them a promotion or prestige but they are valuable to your family. They will deeply impact your children and need to feel loved and appreciated. Praying for them is a great place to start.
Taking care of someone else’s children and loving them as your own is commendable.
We need to pray for our children’s babysitters and nannies as they care for our children. They do this selflessly knowing that this is usually just a short season. When you think of your babysitter or nanny, I hope you are filled with gratitude. I pray that this gratitude turns into admiration and praise to God.
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” (Philippians 4:8 ESV)
Maybe you are searching for a babysitter or nanny and would love to have one that you can say such things about. We will provide prayers for that as well.
When I hired a nanny to watch our toddler, I recognized that praying for their safety was important. And we will help you begin to pray for safety. Now looking back, I recognize that I could have been praying for other things as our nanny watched our toddler.
These prayers will hopefully help you go deeper in your prayers for your babysitter or nanny in your life.
