Theme: Living Together in the Household of God

INTERNATIONAL YOUTH DAY 2015

 

Intercession

We pray for the young people in the churches around the world. May we be a witnessing community with open hands accepting all by shedding all our prejudices. Help us to be an “oikumene” that accepts and acknowledges each one’s contribution without restrictions. Help us to accept your calling as reformers as you have granted us the potential to participate in the ongoing reformation of our churches. Let our churches understand the importance of young people and their contributions. Inspire us to serve others rather than to be served building second line leaderships at the grassroots.

We pray for our sisters and brothers who face discrimination, stigma and pain in terms of their gender identity and sexual orientation. Enable us to broaden our understanding.

We pray for the dalit, tribals/adivasi young people who face discrimination within Churches, Schools, Colleges, Government offices and society.

We pray for the young people around the world in general and the youth living with disabilities. Their disabilities have prevented them from formal education, from leadership roles, and from getting equal opportunities. They have felt more vulnerable as they are being discriminated and rejected in the Household of God. Their yearning for living together with the rest of the communities has been denied. We pray that we society will refresh our minds that we live together in peaceful coexistence with our Disabled sisters and brothers.

Someone’s crying Lord Kumbayah, Someone’s crying Lord Kumbayah, Someone’s cyring Lord Kumbayah, Oh Lord kumbayah

We pray for the young people in the nations, the contributions they make, the dreams they dream for a transformed society. Their creative thinking, techno centered approach brings pride to their nations. We pray for the young people especially in leadership at various levels and for their contributions. Inspire them to make a difference so that they will be able to promote the values of equity, love and peace.

Someone’s crying Lord Kumbayah, Someone’s crying Lord Kumbayah, Someone’s cyring Lord Kumbayah, Oh Lord kumbayah
