|Prayer for Our Youth Worldwide
Our God and Father we thank You immensely for the gift of children, for Your word says children are a blessing and a heritage from You O, Lord. We thus believe Your word that Your blessings add no sorrow.
For every provision to cater for them and their well-being, we likewise thank You, but we most especially thank You for Your protection over each and every one of them in our custody. You are Spirit and You can never be limited, therefore we know that even when we let them out of our sight, we can entrust them in Your custody, under the shadow of Your wings where ever they may be.
Your word also says, whoever touches any one of the little children to hurt or do any evil to them touches You, therefore we believe You care about them. Almighty Father, we therefore call upon You to rise up in Your power and might to defend our youth, as we empathize with all who are weeping over their children and other loved ones worldwide, due to various tragedies and calamities worldwide.
We especially ask for Your protection over all our children, the youth whom satan has been systematically consuming in the crosspaths of all the disasters that have been unfolding globally in recent years, including the 2012 Nigerian plane crash that took the lives of all but 2 of the 109 passengers, wherein at least 60 were students; the kidnapping of the Chibok girls in Northern Nigeria; the children starving due to drought and warfare in war-torn regions of Africa, Iraq and Syria; children poverty-stricken and starving globally, especially in India, Haiti,Philippines and other developing regions, but also in the United States; the children trampled and hurt in the recent Manchester terror attack and those caught in the overnight fire disaster in London, wherein some parents had to throw their children out of widows, to increase their chances of survival.
In the U.S. the youth are also being systematically snuffed out by satan and his vicious antics, through those whose minds have been seared, by being gunned down either by the police using excessive force or by their own parents, peers or sick-minded persons, who engage in mass murders on school campuses or in public places. Children are also been taken advantage of, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually abused as they are being sold as child-slaves, lured through the internet or kidnapped as prey into prostitution rings by devious and sick-minded adults, including those in positions of authority, who are supposed to protect them in schools, churches and even enforcement agencies
Our children are our future and only You can touch the depraved hearts of men, to stop the vicious cycles of increasing evil deeds, that is systematically being used to snuff out generations that should otherwise be valuable and worthy assets in our lives and nations. Only You can protect and preserve us and our children, therefore we call upon You o, Lord.
We therefore pray that You in Your mercy will look beyond our foolish ways, forgive the sins of the fathers, parents and forefathers and remember our youth in Your loving kindness, thereby preserving them for a hopefully better tomorrow.
We thank You in advance, for we believe all things are possible with You. You have promised us a hope for a good future and we believe Your promises can never fail, therefore we know You can do this for us. Lord please wipe away our tears, keep sorrow and tears far away from us and redeem our lives, that Your name may be glorified.
We cover this prayer with the precious blood of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray.
