10 BIG Prayers I’m Praying Over Generation Z

8. Spiritual Growth

I pray that God nurtures the soil of the hearts of young people and grants them a greater sensitivity to their spirit so that they may grow in the knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ. I also pray for more passionate workers for the harvest of youth ministry.

(Luke 2:52; Gal. 2:20; 2 Cor. 5:17; Eph. 3:16)

9. Discernment

I pray God would give our teenagers the knowledge of the truth of God and spiritual eyes to see so that the enemy would not be able to deceive them. I pray they may also be able to discern between the teachings of the Living God and false gods or prophets.

(1 Tim. 3:9; 2 Cor. 2:11; Jn. 17:17; Eph. 6:14)

10. Hope

May God help today’s teen take every thought captive for Christ. I pray He would also fill every young person with the hope of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and protect their minds and hearts from hopelessness. May God also help them to cling to Christ during discouragement and soak up His strength when offering this same hope to others.

(Gal. 6:9; Eph. 6:13; Phil. 4:8; 2 Tim. 2:13; Heb. 10:23; 1 Peter 5:8-9)

Join me in prayer for today’s teenagers and share this with your ministry leaders.
