"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.
