A hiker gets lost in a national forest and dies. He was unprepared, inexperienced. Why would one go alone into the great outdoors without knowing the dangers and preparing for them?
Lord, life is the greatest outdoors. You have given us everything we need for a successful and victorious life. But there is an evil being in this world who wants our loss and demise. It is dark, malevolent and vengeful hating all God’s children~ out to steal, kill and destroy them. Yet we send our kids out into the world wholly unprepared.
If parents do not teach their children about the God who loves them dearly, who will protect them and keep them, they are easy victims to the the malignity of the devil. And he is after our kids big time!
Oh Lord, I ask You to open the eyes of parents today! Make them aware of what is growing like mold in our schools. Children are being taught sin is ok. Lust is a good part of life. God, if He exists at all, is not important. Jesus is the same as Mohammed and Buddha. Our country was not founded on God and His principles. They feel free to rearrange history to their philosophy rather than truth.
My heart hurts for the children of today. We see the results of their hurting and pain every time we hear of a teen suicide (and they are getting younger) or school shooting. These kids are lost in the dark woods of life feeling hopeless and alone. The evil devil feeds them the thoughts of darkness and desperation. Their life seems to have no purpose, so they make one by striking out at others, setting themselves on fire, or sinking into despondency and ending it all.
Light of God’s love can dispel the darkness. Bring godly teachers Lord for the children. Instill your caring heart into the teachers and bring programs to our kids today that teach Your truth! Put a hunger for You in these children and bring mentors to them! Lord, You can overcome the devil’s vengeful actions! Father, I lift the plight of Your children up to Your mercy today, asking for Your Word of promise to come.
Deuteronomy 30:8-10 (NLV)
8 You will obey the Lord again, and keep all His Laws which I tell you today. 9 And the Lord your God will bring much good upon all the work you do, and upon your children,
and the young of your cattle, and the food of your field.
For the Lord will again be happy to bring good to you,
just as He was happy with your fathers.
10 But you must obey the Lord your God
to keep His Laws which are written in this book
of the Law. You must turn to the Lord your God
with all your heart and soul.
Merciful God, You know how to help our children. We place them in Your loving care to stand protection over them. Send angels to guard them. Thank You!
