MINISTER CHERYL WARD
WORD OF FAITH | SOUTHFIELD, MI
Welcome to 30 days of prayer. We are going to be praying for our children and our youth today. I’m going to start off with some Scriptures for us.Psalm 127:3-4says,“Lo, children are an heritage of theLord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.”Our children are very precious to God. InMatthew chapter 19, verses 13-14, it reads“Then little children were brought to him that he should put his hands on them and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Allow the little children to come to me and do not forbid them: for such is the kingdom of heaven.”And so we see here that Jesus wants the children and wants our youth to come to Him because they are precious in His sight and He has a special calling upon them, in Jesus’ name.Another Scripture for us is inIsaiah chapter 8, verse 18. It says,“Behold, I and the children whom theLord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mountZion.”Our children are, indeed, are for signs and wonders unto God. Our children are called. They area chosen generation and a royal priesthood, it says in1 Peter chapter 2. They are for signs and wonders.There is a great outpouring of His Spirit upon our children and our youth.
And so we are praying today that there be a great revival amongst our children and amongst our youth—that our children are coming into the church—learning about Jesus and standing strong like Esther andDaniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and all of the others throughout the Scripture—that they likeSamuel can hear the voice of the Lord as He is calling them and giving them their appointed purpose forthis season and time.
So I invite you today to pray with boldness—to pray with passion for our children, as they are yours, as they are ours—all of the children worldwide that they come into the things that God has called them to do with great boldness and courage and they stand strong in the name of Jesus. We pray for great evangelism and an outpouring of revival to be amongst our children and our youth today. Thank you so much for joining us in prayer today.
