Praying the Pledge Over Young People

Young people today are constantly bombarded by competing messages, opposing worldviews, and passionate opinions. In our information-saturated world it’s incredibly easy to get distracted and off course. Young people are desperately in need of a guiding star to keep them oriented toward the grace, love and truth of Christ. For well over a century, Christian Endeavor’s pledge has provided that focus. Young people across the world have discovered what it means to live and lead for Christ by “endeavoring to live for Him boldy…” Many of you have experienced God’s

transforming and unleashing power as you lived into the pledge practices as a young person!

Your commitment to pray over young people today is more essential than ever. Whether you’re praying for the specific young people in your neighborhood, church or sphere of influence, or praying in general for the thousands of young people connected to C.E. around the globe, you can use the C.E. pledge to guide your prayers for the next generation. Use the framework below to pray over them daily!

Trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ for strength…

“Lord, help young people to put their complete trust in you, relying on you as Savior and Lord for the strength they need each moment of every day."

…I will endeavor to live for Him boldy…

"Lord, fill young people with boldness today as they strive to live for you.”

…and make it the practice of my life…

“Lord, help young people to recognize and grow into living out their faith and trust in you daily.”

…to pray and study God’s Word daily…

“Lord, open the eyes of young people to the depths of relationship you desire to have with them through prayer and your Word. Help them hold your Word as the authority for all of life’s decisions.”

…serve others freely…

“Lord, give young people open arms to be your hands and feet to those they encounter today.”

…share your faith openly…

“Lord, guide young people in openly and freely expressing their love for you to others.”

…worship God in my church regularly…

“Lord, establish in young people the crucial role of their local church.”

…and humbly lead His cause for my generation.”

“Lord, empower young people to see the places around them where you desire for your Kingdom to come and your will to be done – and help them be salt and light to those places!”
