Lord Hear Our Prayer:

 

Oh God, the One that we rely on, the One who lights our path and guides our steps, we come to you today asking that you watch over our children, our youth, our teenagers, and our young adults. We know that you are our bread when we are hungry, our water when we are thirsty, our knowledge when we are in need of direction, our shelter in the times of storms.  You are our all and all, everything that we possibly need!   

 

Help our young people to know that through you and in you, all things are possible.  You said in Isaiah 44:24, “Thus saith the Lord, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord  that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself.”  Thank you my Father for providing each of our young people with parents who are angels here on earth.  They are here to help each of us both in season and out of season.  In Exodus 20:12 You directed us to “Honour thy father and thy mother that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee”.

 

Though we live in trying times here on earth, we heed your words and stand on your assurance that all is well for those who know and trust in You. We also know that our young people are facing many adversaries and difficult challenges in the world today; however, you said in Romans 8:37, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”.

You also remind us in 2 Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”.

 

Knowing this, let our children, our youth, our teenagers, and our young adults hold on to Your unchanging hand.  Knowing as it is written in Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” In the loving words of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, Amen and Amen!
