Youth (The Next Generation)

Young people, especially teenagers, are bombarded with immoral messages and temptations through movies, TV, music, and the Internet. Social media is adding to this dilemma. We need to enter into the spiritual battle that is raging for the souls of our youth. The words of Proverbs are still true today: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6, NKJV).

Pray:

Pray by name for youth leaders in your church and the churches of your community. Ask God to raise up many who can meaningfully share His Word and encourage young people to follow the Lord. Pray for effective youth programs in our churches that will attract young people from our communities who need to hear the Gospel. Pray that churches will offer courses to help train Christian youth in how to share their faith with non-Christian friends.

Today’s Passage:

Psalm 119:9-12

“How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Praise be to you, LORD; teach me your decrees.”

Here is Today’s Focus:

Lenience:

A mild or merciful disposition; a lack of severity in punishing

Psalm 78:35-38 (NIV)

“They remembered that God was their Rock, that God Most High was their Redeemer. But then they would flatter him with their mouths, lying to him with their tongues; their hearts were not loyal to him, they were not faithful to his covenant. Yet he was merciful; he forgave their iniquities and did not destroy them. Time after time he restrained his anger and did not stir up his full wrath.”

PRAY:

Lord, today I ask that you would visit the hearts of your people in America. Reveal to us, oh God, the ways that we have been unfaithful and disloyal. May we be broken before you as we seek your heart for our nation during this election, and may we receive your lenient grace as our hearts are stirred to remember that you alone are our Rock and Redeemer.

Generosity:

The quality of being kind, understanding, and not selfish; willingness to give money and other valuable things to others; providing more than the amount that is needed or normal; abundant or ample

Psalm 51:12 (NKJV)

“Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.”

PRAY:

Your salvation, oh God, is a gift we receive with unending joy, and our lives are upheld by your generosity. I thank you today for the countless ways you have shown generosity to our nation and especially to your people in America. I pray, Lord, that you would use my votes to continue your generosity to America in the years ahead. Make my heart generous as I consider the issues and leaders at hand.

Here is Today’s Focus:

Sanctity of Life

Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, an estimated 54 million pregnancies have been terminated through abortion in America. Pray today for the unborn children of our nation. Pray for their protection in a society that debates their humanity. Children are a blessing from the Lord and something He has fashioned very purposefully. Pray that they will be treasured and seen as gifts. Pray for mothers who face the overwhelming prospect of an unplanned pregnancy. Pray that God will give them courage and provide them with supportive communities that will love and guide them through a trying season. Pray for children born to parents unable to care for them, that God will place them into loving homes where they will be nurtured and taught the love of Jesus. Pray also for the medical doctors who perform the abortion procedure, that God will open their eyes to the reality of what they are doing and convict their hearts to do it no longer. Pray for those mothers who have already undergone an abortion that, rather than shame and condemnation, they will come know the forgiveness and grace of Jesus. And finally, pray for the people of the United States to see clearly that all life is a sacred gift worthy of our protection and love.

Today’s Passages:

Psalm 139:13-16 (NIV)

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”

Need to know:

The upcoming national elections are a Valley of Decision moment for the United States of America. More than any other election, this election is about choosing Life or Death, blessings or curses. Don’t let a religious spirit cause you to miss what God is doing. Choose LIFE when you vote, regardless of how you feel about the candidates running for office! (See Deuteronomy 30:19.)

Compassion:

Sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it

Matthew 9:35-36 (NKJV)

“Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.”

PRAY:

Jesus, I pray that in this election season, you would open my eyes in compassion to those who are weary and scattered, to the lost who are like sheep without a shepherd. May my vote be a compassionate vote—a vote of concern for those who need your healing. May the voice of your people in America today be one of compassion in response to the great needs facing our country at this time, and may the leaders we elect be compassionate as well.

Value:

Relative worth, utility, or importance; to consider or rate highly

Matthew 6:26-27 (NKJV)

“Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?”

PRAY:

God, I come to you today in humble gratitude that you value me. I pray, Lord, that you would reveal to me the things that you value in this election, and that you would lead me to cast my ballot in accordance with your heart. I pray that you would show me how to value my neighbors—in the same way you value them—as I vote. Use my votes, Lord, to demonstrate care for those you value.

The Elderly

The elderly often face difficult challenges without complaint, and many have no one to help them in times of need. Pray that the younger generation will respect the unique gifts and wisdom of the elderly. Proverbs 16:31 says, “Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness.” Ask God to reveal to elderly believers that they have a special opportunity to use their wisdom and spiritual maturity to be dedicated intercessors for the lost and others in need. Some may even feel called to be full-time intercessors. Pray that God will show them how to embrace this unique calling. Pray, too, about starting or joining an outreach team in your church or community that specifically provides assistance to the elderly. Pray by name for the elderly in your church who may need assistance. Befriend them, visiting them at home or in a senior care facility where they live. Pray for opportunities for sharing the Gospel with people who may have lived long lives but have not yet asked Jesus to come into their hearts.

Today’s Passage:

Psalm 71:17-23 “Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come. Your righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens, you who have done great things. Who is like you, God? Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once more. I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, my God; I will sing praise to you with the lyre, Holy One of Israel. My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you—I whom you have delivered.”

Children (Children in Danger, Children Trafficking, and Orphans)

Jesus loved children. In Matthew 19:14 He said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Today we remember these innocent ones of society. Child prostitution and the trafficking of young children are on the rise in America. In addition, there are children in America who are without homes, food, and families. The children of America need our prayers today. Pray by name for children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews in your family. Extend your prayers to children in your neighborhood, your state, and the nation. Pray that Christian parents will raise their children to know and love the Lord. Pray for Christ-centered alternatives in TV programs, movies, video games, and music that will help build a child’s faith, rather than destroy it. And pray for international evangelistic programs that help share the Gospel and make disciples of children around the world.

Today’s Passages:

Matthew 18:2-5 “He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.’”

Deuteronomy 6:6-9 “These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”

Delight:

A strong feeling of happiness; great pleasure or satisfaction; a high degree of gratification

Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)

“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

PRAY:

Today, Lord, I receive with gratitude your rejoicing over me. I serve you in joy and desire to bring you delight through my thoughts and actions—and especially through the exercise of power that is the opportunity to vote in this election. I pray that in this election season and through this upcoming vote, you would shape America to be a nation of people who bring you delight.

Devotion:

A feeling of strong love or loyalty; the fact or state of being ardently dedicated and loyal

1 John 3:16 (NIV)

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.”

PRAY:

Thank you, Jesus, for your sacrifice and devotion to me. I pray that as I approach this election, you would show me how to demonstrate your love and devotion to the lost through my vote. Reveal to me, Lord, how I can lay my life down for the sake of others as I consider issues and candidates on the ballot. May my heart be devoted to you and to my “neighbors” in America as I vote this year.
