THE YOUTH: A NATIONAL ASSET
(Value The Nation’s Young Citizens And Pray For Them)
TO THE BIBLE
1 Timothy 4:12 AMPC
“Let no one despise or think less of you because of your youth, but be an example (pattern) for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.”
When interceding for your nation, there are certain areas you’ve got to focus on and have a clear goal in mind as you pray. One of such is the institutions of higher learning and the young people in them. I believe the young people are the greatest asset of any country, and this is why you must pray for young people like yourself, in every secondary school and college throughout your country and other nations of the world. You don’t just pray for a particular school once and stop. You continue in prayer, because you want to bring the influence of God’s power to bear on the situation there and have it aligned with God’s Word and will.
Pray for as many high schools, colleges of education and universities as you can remember. Call them by name and ask that the anointing of God would descend upon them.
I began preaching to large crowds and ministering to the sick as a student in the secondary school, so I know what more our young people can do in their schools. The same vices and cultism we hear of today, were in the schools when I was a student, but by God’s Spirit we prevailed. I believe there are many young people like you today who can accomplish a lot in the schools for the Lord. Your part is to pray that the anointing of the Holy Spirit will come on them; that He’ll give them utterance to speak His Word boldly, and cause them to do the impossible and affect their generation.
Become persistent in your prayers for the young people in your country. Pray for as long as it takes—until you get that “note of victory” in your spirit and you know you have what you’ve asked for. Keep praying until righteousness shines forth from the schools and salvation flames up like a torch among the young people.
That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:
Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;
Heavenly Father, I pray for the schools and youth in my country today. May your power and your presence be manifested mightily in their midst. May the young believers in our schools be filled with your Spirit and granted the utterance to preach the gospel with boldness and authority, bringing many to the knowledge of Christ and His saving grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
