We hear of reports from all across our nation of attempted shootings and definite bomb threats. Bullying, gangs, drugs, sex, alcohol and the dreary list continues to go on and on.
Some of these children are even in our churches. Yet, still their lives are filled with deep loneliness which causes them to reach out to places that will attach to their souls dragging them down to an eternal damnation.
Our focus must be RIGHT NOW to pray for the young people of this world.
*Teen suicide is up! "According to the National Institute for Mental Health (NIMH), about 8 out of every 100,000 teenagers committed suicide in 2000. For every teen suicide death, experts estimate there are 10 other teen suicide attempts. As many as 8 out of 10 teens who commit suicide try to ask for help in some way before committing suicide." Suicide is the 11th cause of death in the U.S. PRAY AGAINST SUICIDE!
*"Although only 13% of teens have had sex by age 15, most initiate sex in their later teen years. By their 19th birthday, seven in 10 female and male teens have had intercourse." [Guttmacher institute]
PRAY AGAINST SEXUAL IMMORALITY!
*According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), an average of 15 teens are killed everyday, usually with firearms, and 750,000 teens are treated in ERs in the United States for violence-related injuries each year."
