Oh Lord, today is Monday. I know You know that. Here sits my grandson, Ryan. He's just undergone surgery to put screws in his ankle. You know, dear Lord, that it is a result of bearing too much weight in a high-school class after a fractured ankle last year which was already healed. You know I ask for healing for him, again. BUT I WANT MORE...MUCH MORE!
He is nearly 16 Lord. His brother is nearly 14. I beg You, Oh Lord, to encamp your angels of protection around them. Not because they race in motocross. Not because they are active in so many things which could break their bones and maime their bodies. No Lord, I ask for even greater protection for my grandsons. I ask You to protect them from evil and the evil one. I pray You will guard their hearts from the barrage of SMUT and depravity in this world. I pray you will deliver them from the temptations which hormonal changes bring to their bodies. I pray You bring Godly teachers to teach them. I pray for strong unwavering Christian leaders to guide and mentor them. I pray for dedicated sold-out-to-You friends to surround them, Oh God my Father.
Create in them a Spirit that seeks only after Your righteousness, dear Lord. Give them a hunger for Your Word and Your precepts. Guard their steps. Light their way. Fuel Your Spirit that is within them. Lead them not into temptation. Deliver them from evil. Let them be beacons of light for You, Oh Lord, my Redeemer.
Strengthen our Youth Minister, and give him wisdom to lead and guide the young people in our church. Guard his Spirit. Increase his knowledge in Your Word. Give him a mind to comprehend Your Word and a clarity to share It with our teenagers. Open the ears of their hearts, Lord. Open their eyes to Your ways. Convict them. Release them from any sin that seeks to enslave them. Bind the devils of hell in their places. Do not let my grandsons be frightened. Give them a boldness to proclaim You among their peers because that is WHAT MATTERS in this world. Use them Father; use them today.
I ask all this in Your precious Son's name, and more...much more. SelahV Today
