This is a shout out to the God-chasers of this generation, those also collectively called “Love Warriors“. On February 14, 2009 this Saturday, join us as we take 30 minutes to pray for the younger generation…that they would truly surrender their hearts to the God who loves them more than anyone. If you have younger brothers or sisters, cousins, small group members…list down their names and pray for their hearts. Pray that their emotions will not get the best of them, but that they would seek and love and desire the Father’s heart first and above all. That purity, wisdom and obedience will overcome the temptations and lures of meaningless romance the world entices them to have… That they will wait on God, and trust Him to give them their heart’s desire at the appointed time. As kuyas and ates, we are accountable for them. We have experienced and learned much, some from mistakes made…but these are given to us also to help others…especially those who have not yet gone the way we’ve already passed. Let’s go beyond the exclusive and selfish notions of Valentines day and intercede for others. It’s also a sweet and edifying way to show that you care. It is up to you if you want to pray for them in person.
You can also pray for…
1. Wounded hearts. Healing for heartbroken friends or those whose lovedones recently passed away.
2. Your own relationships. That God will remain in the center.
3. People you love who have not yet come to know Christ, the lover of souls.
4. Strength for the love warriors in the persecuted churches around the world.
Note: This is not one of those forwarded messages that grant luck or blessings once you do it. This is totally voluntary and without incentive. You may repost this on your own blog and after praying for the people on your list, it would also be great if you can text them words of wisdom and encouragement regarding ‘love’.
Deuteronomy 5:9-11Â (New International Version)
9 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 10 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
