Prayer, Exhortation, & Decree for the Youth

 by Rose Murdock

Here is a sample intercessory prayer which you can use to stand in the gap for the youth in your city, county, state etc. Adapt it to fit your community and as the Holy Spirit leads.

On behalf of all the young people in Waterford and Michigan I offer the following prayers, exhortations, pledges, and decree.

Prayer: Lord, I pray the young people of Waterford and Michigan come to Christ and become an example of a true believer in Christ Jesus, as revealed in their speech, their conduct, their love, their faith and their purity. Let them gather together to read Scripture and listen to exhortation and teaching. (1 Timothy 4:12-13). Let the Jacob Generation arise—those who seek Your face, have clean hands and pure hearts. Let Your Crusaders arise as prophets in their own homes. Let them develop passionate love for You, unshakeable faith, great discernment, a hunger and thirst for righteousness and truth, with the fruit of the Spirit, as well as the courage and power of God, to overcome all the enemy throws at them.

Let none hinder the children, youth, or anyone from coming to Jesus. I rebuke any and all barriers that would hinder these ones from coming to the Lord. Whether it’s a religious spirit, satanic barriers or distractions, demonic influence from family, teachers, friends or others. Let all barriers keeping the young ones and others from Jesus be brought down now in Jesus’ name. (Matthew 19:14). Let them remain safe from all evil influences spirit, soul, and body, in Jesus Name.

Exhortation to the people: Young people of Waterford and Michigan, come to Jesus! He is waiting for you with open arms. He wants to bless you (Mark 10:13-16). Let Him love you. Let Him reveal Himself to you. Come to Him. Listen to His heart. Listen to what He says (John 14:21). He will lead you to the Father—the Father of life, love, and truth. Jesus is the way, the only way. He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). Come to Him, learn of Him and enter into His rest (Matthew 11:28-30).

People of Waterford and Michigan, do not stand in the way of the young ones coming to the Lord. Instead, encourage them, pray for them, make way for them to come to Jesus. Don’t look down on them. Don’t belittle them. Don’t speak against them. Pray, intercede, and love them into the kingdom of God. Come into the kingdom of God yourself. Continue to pray for them after they come to know the Lord. (Luke 17:2, Galatians 4:19, Colossians 1:9-12).

Exhort more as the Lord leads…

On behalf of all the people of Waterford and Michigan I give the following pledge: I humble myself and come before the Lord like a child to enter into His kingdom (Matthew 18:2-4). I will not stand in the way of anyone coming to Jesus and will not intentionally cause them to stumble (Matthew 18:6). I will love them and pray for them to come to Jesus and grow in the faith. I will nurture in the faith whoever the Lord sends to me for that purpose, with the love, mercy, and grace of God, and by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Pledge more as the Lord leads…

Decree: The young people of Waterford and Michigan are coming to Jesus! People of all ages are coming to Jesus! It’s a multi-generational revival! All our children are taught by the Lord and have great peace. (Isaiah 54:13). The Lord will save our children. (Isaiah 49:25). The Lord is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh and our sons and daughters shall prophesy. The old have dreams, the young see visions (Joel 2:28). The descendants of those who fear the Lord will be mighty on the earth. The generation of the upright is blessed. (Psalm 112:1-2) The Jacob generation is emerging in Waterford and throughout Michigan—the generation who seeks the face of God. The generation with clean hands and pure hearts (Psalm 24:6). All families of the nations shall worship Him. They shall tell of the Lord to the next generation and declare His righteousness to a people yet to be born (Psalm 22:27-31).

Decree more as the Lord leads…
