Today, as we pray 2 Chronicles 7:14, we’re focusing on God’s promise of healing. When we pray, He will hear and heal our land.
Our country is in desperate need of healing. Division, anger, and hopelessness abound. These forces are taking their toll on our young people.
When you remove God from your worldview, you are left with nothing but a life of hopelessness.
Could it be that the next generation is suffering the most from removing God from the national conversation? Life is hard. Life without God or hope for the future is often unbearable.
Is it any surprise that their hopelessness shows itself in suicide, gun violence, depression, and anger.
American Academy of Pediatrics, found a nearly 50% increase in adolescent depression over the past 11 years.
After decades of decrease, the suicide rate in the US has been on the rise since 2000. According to the CDC, there was a noticeable spike in 2008. In 2012 suicide was the second leading cause of death for adolescents 12 to 19.
As we pray for God to bring about a spiritual awakening in our country, let’s pray He begins a new work in the lives of the next generation.
Join me in praying for the healing of our country and in the lives of the next generation. Let’s ask the Father to touch this next generation with the Gospel.
Let’s Pray Together,
Father, we join together in praying for healing for our nation. We need You as never before. We know Your heart breaks at the pain this next generation is experiencing. Touch this next generation with your love. We pray for our students and young people. Let them see their need of You.
We agree together, asking for You to release a spiritual awakening across our country. We need You in the forefront of our nation, our churches and in the lives of the next generation. Let them see that hope and peace are only found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Bring about repentance and a return to you in the lives students across our country.
