Heavenly Father– Today among Your children are millennials, the next gifted generation who will undoubtedly lead us into a future of historic advances in medicine, science, technology and art. I pray that You guide these talented millennials to overcome the challenges facing them. Because of the internet and lack of parental supervision many of them have been exposed to too much adult information before they were spiritually, psychologically and biologically prepared. For high achievers in our competitive society, family time and work life balance is much more difficult to obtain. For some parents homework has become the new family meal. The peace available in prayer is often eclipsed by too much electronic and social media stimulation. Although millennials will certainly use advanced technology to connect Your children around the world in ways once never dreamed of, please show them that the most important connection in life is with You and in following the footsteps of Your Precious Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
