Prayer Points For The Week: Sep 18 - Sep 24 2023

Monday 18th September – Sunday 24th September 2023

Isaiah 54:13 "All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children."

If Nigeria is going to have a glorious future that will do the will of God, the youths and the children must grow up in godliness and fear of God. The state of the majority of Nigerian youths is distressing. At present, many of Nigeria's youths are involved in cyber-crimes, the occult, money rituals, drugs, and unbridled sexual immorality. A generation of parents compromised the Godly parenting and discipline that they themselves had received while growing up. Some of these parents became permissive and indulgent under the guise of 'western civilization,' and others were consumed with the desire to 'make ends meet.' Consequently, they neglected parental oversight.
In addition, the sudden transition of the African society from communal parenting to nuclear families has not helped matters either. In traditional African society, it took the community to raise a child.
This week, we shall focus prayers on Nigeria's youths. There is a prophecy in which God promised to use Nigerian youths wonderfully if they are brought up in His ways. Some of our youths have shown seeds of greatness, but those who are immoral and rebellious are in the majority.
The Millennial Generation, Generation Z, Generation Alpha, the social media generation ... they all need prayers.


1. Ps. 127:3: Thank God for making Nigerians fruitful in procreation. While some nations are suffering a decline in population and are at risk of cultural and racial extinction in the next few decades, Nigeria has a thriving youth population. Thank God for the fruitfulness of Nigerians.

2. Job 39:13–17: Ask forgiveness for the criminal negligence of many parents in bringing up their children.
Prov. 19:18. Pray that parents shall turn around and focus on the Godly upbringing of their children.

3. Prov. 22:6: Pray for the restoration of Godly discipline in schools.
Prov. 23:13–14: The moral education and discipline that helps in character formation has been discarded through government policies and the collapse of the educational system. Pray for a restoration.

4. Isaiah 54:13: Ask God's forgiveness for Nigeria's youths, and deliverance from immorality, sensualities, licentiousness and the greed for money that currently characterize many of them.

5. 1 Tim. 6:6–12: Pray that churches will discard the ungodly focus on money and prosperity, and return to pure Gospel doctrines that produce Christlike character in youths and all Christians.

6. Joel 2:28–29: Pray for revival. Pray that God shall again visit schools in Nigeria as He did in the 70s and 80s.

7. Matt. 6:9–10: Pray that the Kingdom of God shall come upon Nigeria and that God’s prophetic agenda for the country shall speedily come to pass. Amen.
