Day 24 - 31 Days of Prayer, Youth and Education

Day 24

Youth and Education

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one's youth.

Psalm 127:4

We do not cease to give thanks for our youth, making mention of them in our prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to them the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of their understanding being enlightened; that they may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the them, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward all of us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. (Ephesians 1:15-22)

We ask for a government that invests in our children’s education from kindergarten through college.  Thank you for moving upon the hearts of men and women to do Your will in both public and private education sectors.  We pray for superintendents, principles, teachers, professors, counselors, and coaches.  We ask that you strengthen them with might by Your Spirit in their inner man; show them Your love so that they may love the students and their parents, thereby affording them a better education.

Father we ask for parents that would raise their children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord; that fathers do not provoke their children to wrath, but cherish them and nourish them.  Show each parent how to tenderly discipline them in a way that causes the children to love their parents and desire to obey them in all things.

We thank you, Father, that you have given the youth of the USA a hope and a future.  Their future is very bright.
