“…we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask
that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will…
so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord,
to please Him in all respects,
bearing fruit in every good work and increasing
in the knowledge of God…
(Col 1:9 -12)
Now when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation,
he fell asleep…
What, then, shall we say in response to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us?
For God’s gifts and His call can never be withdrawn. (Rom 11:29)
Prayer: Heavenly Father and Creator of all life, You have dreamed a unique dream for every student. Therefore, we cry out to You that the destinies of our children and young people will be preserved!
We pray for our future leaders; raise up young people with godly purpose and destiny to contend for the future of our nation! May many great young leaders, like Moses, Joseph, Joshua, Daniel, Ruth, and Esther, arise from our schools to bring justice and truth to every sector of society.
Raise up those who will lead the way for righteousness in every mountain of influence: in government, in education, in media, in entertainment and the arts, in business and finance, in families and in the church.
May they, like David, fulfill the purpose of God in their generation. Like David, may they know their calling from a young age, that no amount of family negativity, or setbacks, would discourage them from pursuing this.
Instill hope in these young people that regardless of their troubled past, You have a plan for them that leads to life and fullness of joy.
Give this emerging generation a strong vision for the future and implant in these students’ hearts an understanding of Your will for their lives.
Thank you that Your gifts and your callings are irrevocable.
We ask for those who have given up on their God-given dreams, that You would resurrect these dreams and breathe new life into their calling in You.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
