Novena day 9: Prayer for children

May 23, 2015

Novena is an ancient tradition of prayer for nine days between Ascension Day and Pentecost Sunday. Premier is resourcing a Novena to invite the Holy Spirit to bring fresh renewal to the Church and calls on churches across the UK to take part in an ecumenical act of unity and prayer.

Children used to attend Sunday schools in their millions in the UK but those days are long gone – can they return? We will be praying for a fresh revival among children, which historically is often where God begins to bring a fresh touch from the Holy Spirit.

Today’s prayer

Father God,

I pray for the children in my church and in the wider community. I recognise that many children know little or nothing about you – this makes me so sad.

I pray for this generation of children. Holy Spirit bring fresh fire into our churches so that we burn with your love for all people and especially children. Will you once again touch the lives of many children, bringing them to faith in Christ so that their families and the wider community will be blessed and, in turn, impacted through these young, changed lives.

I dare to pray for a fresh revival in our lands and I  dare to pray that you start with the children.

Bless [name some children know to you]. I also ask you to bless, equip and encourage those who work with children. We pray in Christ’s name.

Amen.
