DAY 12: SOAR

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:29-31

 If it hasn’t happened yet, there is coming a time where you will hear from the mouth of your teen child, “I just want to quit!”

How do you respond? We know we need to push them forward, but there can be one of two ways to push. One way is to encourage, push, or challenge to just do what is necessary to get through it… or in other words, to “survive.” The other option is to push to not only get through it, but to capitalize on the opportunity no matter how dreaded or great it is… in other words, “thrive.” Isaiah reminds us that, even in the weariest states and in the seasons where all seems to be going wrong, we can find hope in the Lord.

Today, pray for a teen that will thrive as he/she SOARS above current circumstances. 

God,

Your Word promises that you give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak. So, I pray for ________________ who is weary and weak in these areas:__________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Even though ______________ has grown tired and weary, even though he/she has stumbled and fallen, I pray he/she puts his/her hope in the Lord. I pray for renewed strength. May my son/daughter, _________________ soar on wings like eagles; may _______________ run and not grow weary, may _______________ walk and not grow faint in all of the areas I have mentioned.

I pray this in the powerful name of Jesus.

Amen.
