Week 6 – April 16-23
Pray for the Next Generations
1 I will extol you, my God and King,
and bless your name forever and ever.
2 Every day I will bless you
and praise your name forever and ever.
3 Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
and his greatness is unsearchable.
4 One generation shall commend your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts.
5 On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
6 They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
and I will declare your greatness.
7 They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
8 The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9 The Lord is good to all,
and his mercy is over all that he has made.
This week, we pray for the next generations. Our heart is to see everyone, including our kids, our friends’ kids, our grandkids…everyone come to praise God, declare His mighty acts, and sing of His righteousness. To see this, we have to intentionally commend God and His works to them.
On any given weekend at Lifepoint Church, there are more than 500 children (birth-5th) and well over 100 people serving in Lifepoint Kids…people who have chosen to give their time to invest in the next generation. This doesn’t even count the hundreds middle, high school and college students in our midst.
This week, we want to pray for these young people and their peers. Pray that they would know and love Jesus. Pray that they would consistently, lovingly share the Gospel with the people in their lives. Pray that God would call some of them to give their lives to full-time missionary work, in places both safe and dangerous. Finally, pray for the people who are currently investing in the next generation. Pray that God would give them joy, wisdom and energy as they seek to point young people to the greatness of God.
