Good morning sisters, welcome to a new day! It’s time to pray and please if you can pray at these times 9am, 12 noon, 3pm, 5-6pm or better still, you can pray throughout the day and Pls fast today if you can.
Prayer for our children/ young generation
Why should we take this seriously and pray with every fibre of our being?
This is because our children are our future! It doesn’t matter whether you physically have a child; you’re an expecting mother or you’re even single. It’s time to pray, pray, pray for the next generation.
There is something that is about to happen in the realm of the spirit and God wants us to pray it into manifestation in the physical. Our children/young people will not be exempted in Jesus mighty name.
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:”
Joel 2:28 KJV
Before we go ahead, we need to establish the fact that our prayers can change things. Forget the lies and gentle whisper of the devil to make us feel that it won’t work! We need to have a sustaining faith that whatever we ask God according to his will, will be granted. Let this be established in our minds. Also, the spiritual controls the physical.
-let’s start with thanksgiving. Let’s thank God for our children (the ones we have and the ones that are yet to come) and the young people connected to us one way or the other. Give thanks to God for it is he that has sustained their lives up to this very moment. Thank him, thank him thank him …
“For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.”
Psalms 18:29 KJV
Thank God for all the troop the children have ran and conquered up to this moment. The battles that God has fought on their behalf, somebody give this God a big praise. Halleluyah. No matter your situation right now, give him worthy praise because if your eyes were open you’ll realise that it could be worse. Praise him!
Oh lord, let our prayers for the children/young people avail much.
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
James 5:16 KJV
Let’s amplify it for better understanding: “Therefore, confess your sins to one another [your false steps, your offenses], and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored. The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God–it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].”
JAMES 5:16 AMP
Oh lord, as your word has said, father let our prayers today avail much in Jesus mighty name.
-There cannot be children without parents and to a very large extent, parents have a huge influence on the children. So now, we’re going to pray that the spiritual senses of the parents will begin to be activated so that they become more aware of God’s plan for the children.
“And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.”
1 Chronicles 12:32 KJV
Oh lord, we pray for the parents of these lovely children that they will begin to understand the time and season in their children’s lives; that they’ll discern exactly what to do to guide and nurture these precious ones. Pray for yourself if you’re a parent/parent to be.
-Pray that God will begin to equip the parents to nurture the children in the way and admonishment of the Lord so that when they grow up they will not depart from it.
“Train up a child in the way he should go [teaching him to seek God’s wisdom and will for his oabilities and talents], Even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
PROVERBS 22:6 AMP
-Now, I see a lot of religious children that are just going with the flow but lack any meaningful encounter with Jesus. So we’re going to pray that our children and every young person will no longer just do church but do God. That they’ll begin to have mighty encounters with Jesus. Jesus, please reveal yourself to our children and young people.
“For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
Galatians 1:12 KJV
It’s good to be taught but nothing compares to having a personal revelation of Jesus.
-oh lord, put your love in the heart of our children. Let them truly love the Lord. When they do, they no longer need to be forced but will pursue God both in private and public.
“And Jesus replied to him, “ ‘Y OU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’”
MATTHEW 22:37 AMP
I wonder why it says with all your heart, soul and mind? Our heart is our very core, soul is our deepest part where our desires and emotions emanates from and mind is our thoughts. So can you imagine if the children love God with all these? I mean loving God with everything! Pray sisters 🙏
-oh lord, put your fear in their heart. “Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.”
Psalms 86:11 KJV
-Pray That he would grant you/children according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”
Ephesians 3:16-19 KJV
NB: you think these prayers are so good and loaded? Pls pray for yourself too cos don’t forget you’re also a child!
-Pray for good health. I realise that no matter how glorious a destiny of a child is, if he/she is living in sickness, he/she cannot fulfil destiny because it will be stopped. So good health is very important to live a meaningful life here on earth.
“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.”
Exodus 15:26 KJV
As the scripture above reveals, there is a condition for God not to put any disease upon us/children/young people. So let’s pray for the grace to fulfil these conditions in Jesus mighty name.
-Pray for protection
“The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.”
Psalms 121:8 KJV
-let’s pray that our children/young people will not be used as a weapon in the hands of the devil in Jesus mighty name. Pray that they will not be instruments of terror.
“Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.”
Romans 6:13 KJV
-Let’s pray that they will not believe the lie of the devil but that they shall know the truth and the truth shall make them free.
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
John 8:32 KJV
-speak in tongues if you can over your children/young people
-Pray that the Lord will give us and our children/young people rest on every side in Jesus mighty name.
“But now the Lord my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent.”
1 Kings 5:4 KJV
-Please bless the children with this scripture:
“The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.” Numbers 6:24-26 KJV
In Jesus mighty name, we have prayed, Amen. Thank you Jesus
Please feel free to send in more prayer requests/points for the children as the spirit leads.
