We pray for our young people,
growing up in an unsteady and confusing world.
Show them that your ways give more life
than the ways of the world,
and that following You is better
than chasing selfish goals.
Help them to take failure,
not as a measure of their worth,
but as a chance for a new start.
Give them the strength to held heir faith in you
and to keep alive their joy in Your creation.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
