10 BIG Prayers I’m Praying Over Generation Z

4. Purity

I pray that God would give our students more of a hunger for righteousness than a sexual appetite, and that they would see through the enemy’s lies. I ask God to strengthen them and give them the drive to flee sexual immorality and help them reserve the gift of sex for marriage.

(John 8:32; 1 Peter 1:5; Heb. 13:4; 1 Cor. 6:18; 1 John 4:4; James 1:12-14)

5. Passion

May God grant Generation Z an anointing of power by the Holy Spirit to be the greatest witnesses for Christ Jesus that we’ve ever known. I also pray that their zeal for obedience would supersede any other human desire that they have.

(Acts 1:8; Luke 4:18-19; 1 Peter 3:15; Matt. 28:19-20; Gal. 5:24)

6. Money

The root of all evil is the love of money. I pray that God would give spiritual eyes to today’s teen and help them to view money as a great resource for Kingdom purposes. May God grant them contentment in plenty or when poor because of their richness in Christ Jesus.

(Phil. 4:19; Matt. 6:24; Eccl. 5:10; Heb. 13:5; 1 Tim. 6:10)

7. Submission and Honor

I pray that this generation would submit to Christ and to those in authority over them. May he give them grace to love, respect and honor their parents, teachers, spiritual leaders and governing officials.

(Eph. 6:2-3; Heb. 13:17; Mk. 12:17)
