10 BIG Prayers I'm Praying Over the Millennial Generation

I’ve seen the Lord doing some amazing things in the lives of teenagers (Generation Z) this year. I know it’s because of the work of God and the result of prayer.

Call me crazy, but I believe Generation Z will have an amazing impact on our world and will pursue God with a greater zeal and passion than the generations before them. I invest more time now in prayer for young people than I ever have.

Today, I want to share with you 10 things that I pray for Generation Z:

1. Purpose

I believe God has a plan and purpose for every student. I speak this over teenagers and ask God to, no matter what their circumstances are, give them passion and a deep-seated purpose for living.

(Jeremiah 29:11; Psalm 139:13-16; 2 Cor. 5:20; Jeremiah 1:5; John 14:13; Rom. 8:28-29)

2. Friendships

I spend time talking about the friendships young people develop more than other topics because I know the truth that you are (and become) who you hang out with. I pray God will give today’s teenager wisdom in choosing their friends and that God will bring people into their lives who will point them to Christ. I also pray that He will use students to encourage and build up each other like never before.

(1 Cor. 15:33; Heb. 10:25; 1 Thess. 5:11; 1 Sam. 16:7)

3. Character

Today’s teen is bombarded with every temptation known to man, and the enemy is seeking to destroy their character. I pray that Generation Z may experience an ongoing transformation by having their minds renewed and that they will be examples to the world in their speech, lives, love, faith and purity. I also ask for more great Christ-like role models for our students, particularly among their own peers.

(1 Tim. 4:12; Rom. 12:1-2; Psalm 24:4)
