Praying for Strong Families: Children part 2
“There are so many ills waiting to attract your children and grandchildren today. There is little respect for home and parents, yet this is God’s best for nurturing children. Gangs, drugs, suicide, sex among young people, porn, and lawlessness abound to derail our children from arriving to their destiny with the Lord. What can be done? The family, church, government and education each must seek ways to compliment one another, so that children have a safe place to be born, grow up, learn, work and thus serve others through contributing to life.” (Lisa Crump)1
“Honor your father and mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” (Exodus 20:12; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Ask the Lord for this new administration to support and protect healthy programs that encourage appropriate learning, and for social experiments to be removed.
Pray for parental rights to be protected.
Intercede for religious liberty protection that affects our families, the church, and non-profits that work for the godly upbringing of children and young people.
Pray for the educational system to be cleansed of ungodly curricula and liberal agenda bathroom and other policies.
Ask the Lord for favor to Christian students, teachers, administrators, and boards, leading to prayer, and that Christian materials be welcomed in schools and universities.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we ask that this new administration would support and protect programs that strengthen the family over those that are nothing but social experiments. We ask that the rights of parents to raise their children as they see fit would be protected. I pray that extends to the firm establishment of our religious liberties. Let it extend to our schools. Cleanse the curriculum and remove ungodly laws and policies, such as “The Bathroom Bills”. Give us God-fearing teachers and administrators that will work with parents for the sake of our children. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
We decree that God will use this administration to shift things governmentally to support parents’ authority to make the best life-decisions for their children’s upbringing and education!
