God showed me a vision about Generation Z that compelled me to call on others to join me in preserving this generation.

The creative, adventurous, persistent people of Gen Z will be a mighty spiritual army known for compassion and God’s miracles. They possess God-given qualities that the enemy would like to neutralize, but our intercession will preserve them.

Following a six-week teaching series at our church about spiritual warfare with young people ages 6-12, 30 of them stood with their hands on a wall that our church shared with a voodoo shop next door. They declared 2 Corinthians 10:3-5: God’s power is stronger than demonic forces.

Within just a few weeks of our students praying, the voodoo shop closed, followed by adult-oriented businesses nearby.

Our kids are learning firsthand what can happen when God’s people pray specific verses from the Bible over their city. As leaders, we are seeing that God wants to preserve Gen Z from evil influences, so they will be His ambassadors. We pray for Gen Z, and, in turn, they learn from us how to intercede for their neighborhoods.

  1. Pray Ephesians 2:10, so that each child will know they are God’s workmanship, created for His purpose.
  2. Pray John 14:23-24, so that each child will hear God’s call and stand on His Word.
  3. Pray Colossians 1:27, so that each child will operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
