Dr. Alex McFarland said we should always “be diligent about passing the baton of faith to the next generation….” I am deeply in love with Jesus Christ, but I sometimes feel unsure if we are effectively communicating the beauty of His character to young people. Are we giving our love and attention to the next generation? Are we sharing our testimonies and Biblical wisdom with them? Are we praying enough for them? Dear Father, anoint us to say and do things that will inspire faith in the next generation. Give us a wide area of influence—over our own children, extended family, neighbors, friends, and young churchgoers. Thank You, Lord, that it is Your good pleasure to answer this prayer. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
