Week 06 – The Next Generation
From 22nd March
We’re spending some time this week praying for children and young people – whether they’re our own kids, those in our church family or in the wider community around us, we believe God wants to bring new life and fresh hope to them after a crazy year!
- Jeremiah 32:36-41
- Matthew 19:13-14
- Joel 2:28-32
- Ephesians 3:14-21
- Psalm 78:1-8
A prayer exercise to try this week
As you read each of this week’s passages, imagine reading them to children or young people you know – in your own family, in our church community or beyond. You could picture them in your imagination to or hold a photo of them as a prompt. We’re not praying to them, but using them as a reminder to ourselves to bring them before Jesus.
If you’re praying for children whose parents you know, write down the encouragements the Lord gives you and send them on!
Pray around and for school, colleges, uni campus in your local area – to be places of safety, creativity, purpose and releasing hope and destiny. Pray for teachers and staff working under hugely difficult circumstances.
