I praise you Lord that you are the God of truth, the revealer of lies. You love my kids more than I do. You are my redeemer and can redeem those who have been led astray by cultural influences and media. You are not the Father of confusion, but you are the giver of a sound mind. You are my instructor, teacher, revealer of truth and wisdom.
Forgive me Lord when I have been intellectually lazy, have lacked biblical rigor and literacy. When I have been apathetic about how much influence media and culture have on my kids. When I have not taught my children when I rise up and when I sit down. When I have let screens babysit my children without screening the worldviews and philosophies being peddled as entertainment.
Thank you, Father, that you are the God of hope. That along with your word, there are ministries and resources available to me to become a better discerner of the times and to test the spirits behind the media. Thank you Lord, that you have given me authority and power to disciple my children. You have given me a spirit of courage and a sound mind to do so. Thank you for guiding me and my children into all truth.
Oh God, help me I pray, to come up against the spiritual forces of darkness that are beckoning my children through media. Reveal to me the deceptive philosophies and the strongholds that need to be torn down.
Lord, I ask that no one takes _________ (your son or daughter’s name) captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world, rather than on Christ. (From Colossians 2:8 NIV)
Lord, I pray that you will rescue my children. Give them the desire, wisdom, discernment, and courage to stand strong against peer pressure and cultural assaults, to be revolutionaries, to put on their armor daily and stand. Protect them against the lies and ploys of the enemy and show them favor amongst their peers so that they may help turn the tide. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
