Pray for Our Kids!

School seems to start earlier every year.  The 2016-2017 school year has already begun.

This past week, the youth group met and spent time praying for one another and for other students everywhere who have started another school year.  Please join me as I continue to pray this month for these young people.  Below is a guided prayer provided by the ERC Churches of God.  Please use it and lift our kids up regularly.  Prayer is a powerful thing.

  1. Pray for Peace (Isaiah 26:3; Philippians 4:6-7; Romans 5:1) Pray that our kids will experience peace that exceeds all understanding.  Pray that they will not be anxious about the things they can’t control and that God will guard their hearts and minds.  Pray that they will be Christ-like and trustworthy in their relationships with their family and friends.
  2. Pray for Protection (2 Thessalonians 3:3; Psalm 46:1; John 17:15; Psalm 91) Pray for emotional, physical and spiritual protection over our kids.  Pray that God will guard their minds from harmful instruction and give them discernment to recognize the truth.  Pray for strength and courage for them in the presence of danger.
  3. Pray for Purity (Psalm 51:10; Matthew 5:8; 1 Timothy 1:5; 1 Corinthians 10:13; Psalm 19:14) Pray that our kids’ thoughts and actions are pure and motivated by love.  Pray that when God gives them a way out from temptation, that they will take it.
  4. Pray for Passion (Psalm 42:1; Matthew 22:37-39; John 13:34-35) Pray that kids everywhere will develop a passion for the things of God.
  5. Pray for Perspective (Galatians 2:20; Matthew 28:18-20; Philippians 1:21; Colossians 3:1-2; Ephesians 3:17-20) Pray that kids will develop an eternal perspective and purpose and not an earthly one.  Pray that they will set their minds on things above.
