For 40 Days (September 28 - November 6), I will be posting prayers for our country. These prayers are from the prayer initiative 40 Days to Save America.
I pray you will join me in this prayer effort.

L-rd G-d, 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 G-dless 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 unG-dly 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 that our young people would be filled with a desire for Your righteousness and truth. In Yeshua’s name, Amen.

We ask that You grant them wisdom and discernment, L-rd, and that You make them bold to do what is right in Your sight. L-rd, we ask that You direct their hearts to do Your will. In Yeshua’s name, Amen.
