Rebellion in Our Youth: Sometimes Pain is the Only Way Some Learn

Rebellion in our youth…
is a major problem today.
For many proclaim independence…
and chose to walk their own way.
And teaching right from wrong…
has always been a parent’s concern.
But sometimes experiencing pain,
is the only way some finally learn.
For we tell our children…
not to play with fire…
but though warned of being burnt…
they will give in to that desire.
And we tell our children…
not to make the same mistakes…
and though we’ve walked that path…
many wrong choices they will make.
And the pain of rebellion…
is sometimes hard to withstand.
But sometimes learning from pain…
is the only way they will understand.
But it’s never too late…
to turn back to what’s right…
when we learn right from wrong…
and turn from darkness to the Light.
For many of our children…
will push the limits of what’s safe…
but like the prodigal son…
may they return to a righteous place.
So join me in prayer…
for all our children today.
That they will choose right over wrong…
and walk the righteous way.
That they will have discernment…
to avoid the evils that lurk…
and chose right paths…
knowing God’s guidance at work.
That they will be protected…,
despite the mistakes they make…
and they will turn to God…
knowing that it’s never too late.
For God just waits patiently…
for us to learn about Him…
but so many are stubborn…
requiring pain for learning to begin.
So Lord, protect our children…
and turn their hearts to You…
bring healing and restoration….
with new beginnings to each too.
Let them feel Your Love…
for love is what they all desire…
and raise this generation to serve You…
with a deep unquenchable Fire.

Dear Lord, we lift up our children to You. We know that You love them even more than we do. We pray for a hedge of protection over them wherever they are and whoever they are with. Protect them from evil, even from their own family members. We ask You to implant righteousness in each of their hearts that they will desire to chose right over wrong and avoid the pitfalls of the enemy. Give them discernment that they will not we tricked by Satan and courage that they can stand up to evil temptations. Fill them with Your Love so that they will not seek love in wrong places. Help them to choose right paths to avoid the pain, shame, and brokenness of wrong choices. Deliver from rebellion of their youth and fill them with Your Peace that surpasses all understanding as You bring healing and restoration from the wounds of brokenness…. in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
