Prayer For Our Youth - August 18, 2008

August 18, 2008

Good morning dear friends. I want to lift up our young people today. Our 13-year-old grandson, Tanner, broke his left femur last Monday during school football, the day before school started. One tackle, months and months of healing - no football, no basketball, and perhaps no baseball next summer. Also, our great-niece started college last week, and our granddaughter begins college in a week or two, others begin school, and our last daughters begin college in a week. Friends have children and grandchildren in the military around the world. We ask a lot of our children. Let’s support them daily with our prayers. Perhaps you’ll want to go on my blog and pray this prayer daily for the youth of our country. Let’s pray:

“Our loving Father, God, we humbly bow before you, for you are our All-in-all. We try to understand you with our own logic, when you are outside of our logic, our reason, our understanding. Without fully knowing your plans for ourselves, our families, and our friends, we trust you and pray that your perfect plan may manifest itself in our lives and the lives of our loved ones. We pray today for our young people everywhere: school, college, work, and around the world. Heal their bodies, their souls, and keep them safe. We pray for their needs and ask that you tame their wants. Give them grateful hearts and keep them safely within your outstretched arms, cradled there like the children you have claimed as your own. May they find you in college, school, and everywhere, for you are there with them. Forgive us if we have not prepared them well. We also know that your work through us and in us is not done. Our children will need our love and guidance all the days of our lives and beyond. Give us insight into the wisdom we are to leave with them. When they seek your face and find you smiling, we will shout, “Glory to God,” for your presence, your healing, and love. We pray this all in the power of the name of Jesus Christ, your precious son, our redeemer. Amen.”
