I know there are a lot of godly young people who are seeking His face and living out loud for Jesus in their generation. They are world changers whose faith inspires us all!
But there is also a culture of young people who seem to have scales on their eyes – blinded to spiritual things – uninterested in seeking God’s face – having no fear of God and placing no value on that which is sacred and holy.
They want to make sense of life, but they don’t want to trust in the simplicity of the Gospel.
For them, my heart has been breaking! Perhaps that’s one of the reasons The M.O.M. Initiative has become such an important ministry to me. I really do believe that if the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world, then the church that mentors those hands will win it.
But winning a generation begins on our knees. Turning the world upside down won’t take place unless we’re willing to seek His face.
Lamentations 2:19 says,
“Rise during the night and cry out. Pour out your hearts like water to the Lord. Lift up your hands to him in prayer, pleading for your children, for in every street they are faint with hunger.”
Our children are starving for lack of the Word. They are hungry for spiritual food and they don’t even realize that it’s the only thing that will quench their appetites.
But this verse calls us to pray like crazy for our kids. It doesn’t say, go feed them… it says to pour out your hearts like water to the Lord. Lift up your hands to him in prayer. Plead for your children in every street…for they are faint with hunger.
Your children may be serving God, but a whole generation is slipping through the cracks of Christianity and we are called to pray.
Will you intercede for the next generation of children before we lose it all?
