Praying for the Young Women in our Community
Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Loving Lord, we magnify and glorify Your precious name. We humbly bow before Your throne of grace in Your holy presence. We lift up the young women of the nation before You. Guide and direct their ways, Oh Lord, they need You. Help them to seek righteousness and to yearn for You and You alone. Lead them down the paths of righteousness so they can become outstanding role models and leaders to the younger generation.
Proverbs 11:16 A gracious woman gets honor, and violent men get riches.
Proverbs 31:26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
Lord, we pray that You will grant them wisdom to make wise decisions that will direct them onto the paths You set before them. Mold them into instruments of Your will. Protect them from physical, emotional, verbal and sexual abuse. Heal those who have been subjected to abuse, whether from friends, family members, or schoolmates. Protect them against alcohol abuse, peer pressure, bullying and violence at school. We pray that when confronted with temptation,they will choose to be directed by Your Holy Spirit. Lead them away from all forms of sexual immorality, all types of addictions and any ill company. Surround them with people who will lead them closer to You.
Matthew 17:20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Educate them, oh Heavenly King, even as their bodies change and they are being transformed into adulthood. Be right beside them covering them with the cleansing and purifying blood of Your son Jesus Christ. Lord, may they find good partners in their lives, ones who will support, encourage and take care of them. Lead them to a true man of God, a righteous man, someone who will keep them close to You. These things we ask in the precious name of Jesus, Amen!
1 Timothy 2:8-10 I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing,but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works.
