Anxiety and depression in our youth have skyrocketed. Suicide is the the 2nd leading cause of death in young people.
We must do something!
Our kids need hope. They need someone to ask if they are OK. They need help. And…help is available.
Mostly they need to know God is with them and the feeling of desperation will not last. There is HOPE.
Something needs to change. When change is needed prayer is critical. It is the best first place to start.
On January 9, 2020 a group of us in mom or parent ministries gathered to pray against this public health crisis. I represented the MOMS Together Facebook community (and podcast). Please consider joining this grassroots prayer movement to seek God’s healing hand throughout 2020.
This prayer guide was created by True Girl Ministries (Dannah Gresh ) . Click on the link to download the three easy ways to participate in prayer and fasting: Prayer for Our Youth (Suicide Prevention )
Let’s storm the gates of heaven with our prayers and petitions on behalf of our children!
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
Ephesians 6:18 (NIV)
