Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Christians Please Pray And Intercede For Children

Posted by Job on March 9, 2009

I have noticed a rash of shocking violent crimes against children – as well as violent crimes by children – lately. Perhaps the most amazing thing is how little attention it is attracting. A mere 20 – 25 years ago, crimes against children or by children were national news. Now, there are entire families getting murdered in their homes on back to back days and it is only mentioned in a single local news cycle. Nor has there seemed to be much notice in the trend of preteens committing murders against their own family members.

The world may not be noticing, but Christians need to stand up and take notice. And we also need to take action. What action should this be? Pray and intercede for these children and families. The Bible says that prayer changes things. Bible – believing Christians need to start living up to our name and start praying in the Name of Jesus Christ that the hand of evil that is afflicting our nation’s children be stayed and removed! I encourage all Bible – believing Christians who read this to post their prayers in the comments below in the chance that some people who do not have a prayer response readily available can read them and repeat them. It can be an Internet prayer meeting of sorts!

And no, we cannot merely stop at praying for children. We need to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with children so that they may be born again through Him, and do it urgently. We can speculate Biblically on the cause of this great evil another day (or on another thread) but now is not the time for words but for action in the form of prayer, intercession, evangelism, and spiritual warfare. I ask that all Christians take some of their time and participate.

Thank you.

    Dear Heavenly Father
    In the Name of Jesus I ask that You would grant us a heart of repentance concerning our youth. May Your people begin again to humble ourselves in repentance and prayer and begin to reach out to the youth in our neighborhoods and community. Renew our hearts again with Your Holy Spirit to boldy preach the Good News of Jesus Christ to those around us.

    Dear Father, I also pray that Your Holy Spirit would be at work in the hearts of families, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, to give strength, renewed love, and faithfulness to You, their spouses, and their children. May prayer, worship and time together replace the things that grieve You and rob precious time with our families. May Your mercy be upon us, I pray in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
