The Youth: A Huge Asset - October 2nd, 2022

(Value The Nation’s Young Citizens And Pray For Them)

By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome


TO THE BIBLE: “Let no one despise or think less of you because of your youth, but be an example (pattern) for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.”n.” (1 Timothy 4:12 AMPC)



When interceding for your nation, there are certain areas you’ve got to focus on and have a clear goal in mind as you pray.One of such is the institutions of higher learning and the young people in them.

I believe the young people are the greatest asset of any country, and this is why you must pray for young people like yourself, in every secondary school and college throughout your country and other nations of the world.

You don’t just pray for a particular school once and stop. You continue in prayer because you want to bring the influence of God’s power to bear on the situation there and have it aligned with God’s Word and will.

Pray for as many high schools, colleges, and universities as you can remember. Call them by name and ask for the manifested presence of God in them.

I began preaching to large crowds and ministering to the sick as a student in secondary school, so I know what more our young people can do in their schools.

The same vices and cultism we hear of today were in the schools when I was a student, but by God’s Spirit, we prevailed. I believe there are many young people like you today who can accomplish a lot in the schools for the Lord.

Your part is to pray for an outpouring of the Spirit, and that He’ll give them utterance to speak His Word boldly, and cause them to do the impossible and affect their generation.

Become persistent in your prayers for the young people in your country. Pray for as long as it takes—until you get that “note of victory” in your spirit and you know you have what you’ve asked for.

Keep praying until righteousness shines forth from the schools and salvation flames up like a torch among the young people.

Go Deeper: Psalm 144:12; Ecclesiastes 12:1

Speak: Heavenly Father, I pray for the schools and youth in my country today. May your power and your presence be manifested mightily in their midst. May the young Christians in our schools be filled with your Spirit and granted the utterance to preach the gospel with boldness and authority, bringing many to the knowledge of Christ and His saving grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
