From the Mouths of Babes

"And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?" Matthew 21:16

Lord, I pray for young Jayna who is featured in this video below.  I pray for all young people, who have been blessed by You with undeniable gifts.  Let them understand that the gifts of the Lord are given without repentance...but that they are given for Your glory alone (Romans 11:29; Matthew 25:14-30).  It does not take long for Satan to try and put out the light in our young people or to send the world (including religion) to try and pervert/misuse their talents.  Please give these younger generations Godly wisdom Lord, so that even as the world may try to lift them up in pride for Satan's purposes, that they will remain in humble appreciation of the Master who has so blessed them.

Father, even the most precious gift is but a ring in a pig's snout if it is misappropriated for our own use instead of Yours (Proverbs 11:22).  It is time Jesus for a Godly heritage in the Lord to be seen in the earth, and quite honestly Lord, I am sick of the "church" pimping our young people.  I am not speaking God about this particular young lady, but in general.  The church should not be our ticket into the world as exemplified by many "Christian" artists today.  Lord, I am asking for a Godly standard to be seen, for pure praise to come forth, for coming generations to be saved and not turned out to be abused by the world.  I am asking for Your hand of protection and the Holy Spirit of power to rest on these young ones to lead and guide them in these evil days.

No matter the gift you have bestowed upon them, let them operate in that gift with a heart that is sold out to you, with a desire to please and honor you.  Place within them a burning fire to be wholly yours - spirit, soul, and body - so that when the gift is on display it brings about a manifestation of Your awesome power and love.  Let them be beacons of light to the lost, helping to draw all men unto You, and not unto themselves.

I thank you for the wonderful children you have given us, including this little one below.  Bring people into their lives who truly know You and are able to speak life to into their souls.  Keep us in remembrance that they are Yours first & foremost, and that we have been entrusted to guide them in Your ways (Psalm 127:3; Ephesians 6:4).  Let us not take this likely and neglect to be that witness of Christ before them.  I ask you to bless them continually with more of Your presence and to be a swift judge against all who would seek to bring evil into their lives.  Amen.

  1. This my prayer too for . No one is too young to come to Christ and grow in that understanding of that relationship. Most people come to Christ before 18, which is why I consider youth and children's ministry important.

  2. The path for this young ladies destruction has already been put in place, as it is with all who are born.

    1. Hi HannielOnline,

      I am sure you are right. In fact, that is the overwhelming impression I got when I saw the video.

      Satan has a plan for each I am sure. But God...

      Satan would love to turn this little girl out and use her for his purposes. But God...

      I don't deny what Satan may already have put in place for Jayna and many other young people, but I am pleading with God to turn this around. I am asking people to intercede for these young people so that those plans may be brought to naught. I am asking for the Lord to intervene and thwart the plans of the enemy. The Lord also has a plan for each of them, if they but give their lives to Him.

      Before we were saved, my husband and I attended a secular concert. People in the audience were like, "Go on yal!...Sing your song!...Take your time!" It sounded just like the church people in this video. When praise & worship becomes about the gift instead of the Gift-giver, it is tainted.

      It is clear that Jayna has a beautiful gift, but that is not enough. She stands in the midst of the "church" and seems to be surrounded by others who have no clue what praise and worship is. Instead of glorifying God, they are exalting her. The "church" has really become just like the world in many respects.

      Anyway, I am sure you understand all of this. I am just explaining more about why this prayer was put forth for her and all young people. It is truly time for a standard to be raised and I know that the younger generations will be a big part of that.

      Hope you and the family are well!

    2. You know after I sent this the first thing out of m mouth was "thus the reason for this prayer." I'm in agreement for intercession. I think I just saw this video and things didn't sit right about it and then because I watched it, youtube decided to show me more video with her in it and so I watched and I just see more the importance of being grounded in truth and how lost, deceived and just plain ole in the dark folks are. They truly do not know what it is they do. I find myself understanding that a bit better these days.

      I believe this generation is called forth to go into the promised land that their forefathers refused to go because they longed for Egypt and unbelief. Intercession is key!

      I hope you all are well
