“Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it, for in its peace you will have peace” Jeremiah 29:7
We declare we stand at the beginning of a new move of Your Spirit in our nation and the nations, we thank You for Jesus, our Saviour, our friend, the author and finisher of our faith, and we thank You that our names are written in heaven. (Hebrews 12:2, 23).
As we pray for the children of our land, we declare this is the time for a new move of God’s Spirit amongst them. In the Name of Jesus, we call forth those carrying fresh revelation and creative ideas, able to teach children with relevance, life and depth. We thank Him for the new wineskins He is releasing regarding children’s ministry, for those He is raising up, and we speak shift and change into any curriculum, plan or methodology which is of the old season. We decree, the children’s ministries of this land will take hold of the challenge and opportunity of the day, raising a generation who will move in the power of the Living God.
We declare schools and colleges will teach, train and equip children and young people that the fullness of the ability, gift and call You have put within them will be drawn out and released, irrespective of social or ethnic background. We declare the students in this nation will be taught by men and women who are gifted and skilled, able to impart knowledge, and on whom Your favour rests, full of Godly wisdom, creativity and understanding. Lord, we cry out that in this day, those You have called to change and touch lives through this profession will arise, strong in their gift & call, and empowered by Your Spirit.
Take a moment to lift up your local schools, that as staff begin to consider changes for September, every shift will bring in a person of God’s choosing.
In the Name of Jesus, we decree and declare in this nation Your Word and Your wisdom will be heard in every place of education, changing atmospheres, mindsets, hearts and lifestyles.
Now Lord, we declare You are raising a generation of young people who know their true identity in You, that in these days, they will move with the power of Your Spirit, releasing a sound of worship to hold back the enemy; that they will preach, they will prophesy, and the sick will be healed.
Joel 2: 28 ‘ And it shall come to pass afterward, That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. And also on my menservants and on my maidservants, I will pour out My Spirit in those days.’
