This is one of the most important prayers of any 21-century parent or guardian. Having your teenager alone behind wheels means so much. Since, you can’t be there to watch and guide, you must just pray to God to watch over your teenager driver and release his cloud of safety over them.
The liberty that your teenager can now officially drive comes with mixed feelings. First, you are no longer bound to take them everywhere they need to be driven to. That means for the first time in a long time, you are free from babysitting!
On the other hand, they now have the autonomy to the wheels and any mistake or wrong judgment can cause fatal accidents that may put lives in danger; including theirs. This reality sends cold shivers down the spine of any parent or guardian.
Say this prayer for my teenage driver for any teen or young adult driver around you for we know that Satan, the enemy moves around like a roaring lion seeking whom to devour. Pray that your teen will not be prey to the influence of the enemy in the name of Jesus.
Send the prayer points for my teenage driver to them as early morning messages when they need to take the car out. Release the watch of angels over your teenage driver in the day and night by faith as you say the prayers below.
1. Thanksgiving for My Teenage Driver
Thank you, Jesus, for helping my teenager to pass driving lessons, although, it’s been a bit tedious it was worth all the wait. I appreciate you for giving my teen the boldness and calmness to learn all the necessary skills needed.
We are indeed grateful that from today, my teen will be able to drive. We will not need to drive him around town, at least he has the autonomy to take the car out to less busy highways. I also appreciate you dear God that when he has enough boldness to drive on the big and busy highways, you Lord will be his shield and buckler.
Thank you, Dear God, because I will not sorrow over this one in the name of Jesus. Thank you, Lord, for infusing him to grace to always drive safely and you will keep him from the reach of evil at all times in the name of Jesus.
Now, that my teen can drive, many eyes will notice him more than before, but I bring praise to your holy name for you will keep and deliver my teenage driver from negative influences.

6. Prayer against Distraction for My Teenage Driver (Daughter)
Heavenly Father, I come before you with a troubled heart. My daughter is getting her driver’s license and I am both excited and fearful for the day she will be out on the road by herself. I pray that you would keep my daughter safe as she goes out today. Lord, protect her from danger and give her the wisdom to know how to handle every situation that comes her way. May she be strong and not be afraid. I pray that you will give her strength and courage as she deals with other teens who are driving on the roads. Lord, may she be a light for you in all situations. Please bless her and her friends with the grace to drive with a focus on the road. Please keep them from texting while driving, putting on makeup or changing CDs, arguing with passengers and other drivers, or trying to eat while driving.

7. Prayer against Distraction for My Teenage Driver (Son)
Dear Lord, I am asking you today to be with my teen and help him keep his focus on the road as he is driving. There are so many distractions they face while they are out driving – phones, music, friends, food, billboards, and even thinking about other things. Help him to be aware of all these distractions and stay focused on the road ahead of him. Lead him not into temptation and deliver him from evil. Keep my son focused on the road today. Distract him from all that would cause him to take his eyes off the prize of a safe journey. Distract him from texting, emailing, and even from talking on his phone. Keep his mind on driving, and his hands on the wheel. Distract him from being distracted by friends in the car with him. Keep their minds on driving and their hands on their wheels.
Distract him from being distracted by a pretty girl walking by, and distract her too so she will not tempt him to look back at her as he drives past. Distract him from music that is too loud or lyrics that are inappropriate for a young man to be singing along with as he drives down the road. Distract him from his own thoughts so he will keep his mind on the road instead of thinking of whatever has captured it lately.

Dear God, I am praying against speeding for my teenage driver. I pray she will be more aware of the limit and drive the speed limit at all times. I pray that the speed limit will be written on her heart so that even when she is not aware of a change in the speed limit, she will obey the law and not bring a ticket home to me. I also pray that you will protect her from others who are speeding and driving irresponsibly – Lord put your hedge of protection around her always! Keep her from speeding. I pray that she would be mindful of the speed limit and not get a ticket. If she does get a ticket, please help her to learn from it and not do it again. According to your word in I Peter 5:7 – Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. We trust you to protect our child from an accident.
We pray for drivers around my child today, asking that you will keep them safe as well. I pray against speeding, dangerous roads, and other drivers who are not paying attention. I pray that if he becomes distracted, you will help him regain focus to stay on the road and drive safely. I declare that they know when to slow down and speed up, they will be cautious while driving and always drive with care. I pray that my teenage driver will have a safe trip to their destination, stay safe, free from accidents, and free from harm.
We ask that you give us the wisdom to teach our children and the strength to enforce your rules. Guard our tempers against over-reaction or anger when dealing with this new freedom. Guide our decisions when it comes to setting curfews and other limits on driving privileges. Help us to be faithful in prayer for our children each day.
