Pray for America - Day 24

This post is part of a 31 day series from the American Prayer Initiative
You can sign up at the link and have the prayers sent to you daily in your

up through the general election on November 6, 2012.
Suggested Scriptural references ...
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.  Ephesians 6:4
Yeshua said, “Let the children come to Me.  Don’t stop them!.... And He placed His hands on their heads and blessed them.  Matthew 19:14-15

Suggested prayers ...
We lift up our youth, asking for Your divine intervention and protection over their lives.  Guide their teachers and their parents, O G-d, to train them up in Your ways.  Give them wisdom and courage in this godless culture.
We ask You to protect our children from the influence of evil.
We pray for the rising generations, asking You to guard their hearts and minds, and give them a desire for true wisdom.
Help our young to recognize the negative influence of our culture, and give the believers among them strength to stand strong in their faith as Your witnesses.
Our loving L-rd, help us to realize that our young people are children.  Protect them from the ungodly influences of this world, and establish them with firm convictions based upon Your truth.
Protect our children from lies, deception and manipulation.
We pray for sexual purity to be the new standard for our youth.
We ask You to replace deadly desires with a true desire for righteousness and purity.
We pray for America’s schools, that they recognize the importance of not only teaching young people academic basics, but to affirm the necessity of character development.
We ask for a removal of restrictions against Your Word in our schools.
We pray for Your Word to regain prominence as the Gold Standard for education, character & conduct.
Master Teacher, guide us by Your Word and allow us to impact our educational system with the Truth. 
Please raise up teachers who will honor Your Word as they teach our children.
Expose any enemy working to influence our children, and give us the strength and wisdom to act with authority and effectiveness to protect our young.
May our children demonstrate your love to their teachers and classmates.

Yes, Father, I agree and offer these prayers in the name of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach. Amain.
