Pray for Families (The Tides of Life)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

People from every generation can tell you stories of their youth and all the crazy things they did as they followed the cultural trends of their time.  You are probably chuckling right now as you reminisce on the wild things you did.  Today is no different in that many embrace the current boundary-shifting culture and don’t seem to notice the undercurrent that is pulling them in.   But today is very different from yesteryears.  Historically, our country embraced Judeo-Christian values as its foundation, and thus most who were pulled out into the cultural sea eventually found themselves washed back ashore.   They may have become a little saltier as a result, but their core values eventually resurfaced.

Today many children are raised without a knowledge of Christ or God because they are no longer learning about Him at home or in school. Even public places have erased all signs of Him.  As many youth and young adults either actively or passively succumb to the cultural undercurrent, is there any hope that they will ever reach shore again?    Of course there is, because God loves His children and we will be praying for them!

As a shepherd examines his flock while he himself is among his scattered sheep, so will I examine my sheep. I will deliver them from every place where they were scattered on the day of dark clouds. The lost I will search out, the strays I will bring back, the injured I will bind up, and the sick I will heal. Ezekiel 34:12,16

Lord, protect your children from the tidal wave of desires that are counter-cultural to you. Give them a greater sense of you as they seek to fill the voids in their lives.  May our prayers for them be the protective armor they need in the battle against evil.  Put us in their daily path and use us as your buoys, lighthouses, and life rings.  In your death, you showed us how great your love was for us. May your ocean of mercy wash all of us to higher ground.  Jesus, we trust in You!

More powerful than the roar of many waters, more powerful than the breakers of the sea, powerful in the heavens is the LORD. Psalms 93:4

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Create a tidal wave of prayer.  Pass it on!
