prayer for teenager

Dear Lord,

We pray for the teenagers of today.

We pray for their minds, their bodies, and their souls. We pray that You would help them to see you in all things and to find joy in their lives despite their many challenges and obstacles.

We pray for the parents of teenagers, that they would be able to guide and show love for their children in ways that will lead them to feel loved by You as well. Let them know that You are always present with them and never far away.
