Let us pray for child soldiers

Updated: Jun 5

Umhlala gahle light of the world. May grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of GOD and JESUS (1 Peter 1:2). Allow the HOLY SPIRIT to heal you of your traumas. Otherwise, your children will have to heal from the ones you inflict on them. GOD does not repair injustice with injustice. Justice and fairness are the foundation of his throne (Psalms 89:14).

Deliver those who are drawn toward death, And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Surely we did not know this,” Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?

(Proverbs 24: 11-12, NKJV)

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Foreveryone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened"

(Matthew 7: 7-8, NKJV)

According to the Christian NGO World Vison,, each year more than 300,000 children are forcibly recruited into armed groups. The definition of child soldiers is not limited to children directly involved in the fighting. " Porters, spies, cooks, sexually exploited children" are also child soldiers. There is also a little talked about category: those used for satanic pacts and rites. The majority are forcibly enlisted. A minority of children voluntarily join armed groups. For reasons such as: fleeing a violent family environment, desire for emancipation, desire for revenge against other soldiers, finding material comfort and protection. In addition to the challenge of reintegration, the healing of physical and psychological scars, the need for resources and personnel (anointed, qualified, motivated and available), there is a need for intercessors, praying for forgiveness, deliverance and the breaking of curses. Don't look at these pictures, asking yourself who is the least old or most in need. The question is: what needs do you perceive in their eyes?

Don't be in a rush to talk. These children do not need "emotional and eloquent" prayers. They need divine interventions (of GOD) through men and angels. To intercede is to serve GOD by praying for your neighbor. It is to pray for the accomplishment of GOD's will: for man, in man, and through man. Who knows better than GOD what your neighbor needs (today and tomorrow)? One article would not be enough to write everything. Go beyond my words. Let the HOLY SPIRIT lead you and pray as long as it inspires you. Synchronization is progressive, not instantaneous. Start by praying in tongues. Pray by reading, and read by praying.


Thank you for the grace of knowing you, the privilege of approaching you,

the awareness of being loved and the assurance of being saved.

Thank you for the Salvation in JESUS CHRIST and the communion through the HOLY SPIRIT.

Thank you for the times and circumstances in which,

You made us be born, grow up and meet You.

Day after day, we realize how great your goodness and mercy are towards us.

Thank you for the angelic escort and the angelic ministry.

Thank you for those who, in the different seasons of our lives, have sown and watered your Word in us.

Thank you for their intercessions, encouragement, victories, testimonies and simplicity.

Thank you for the ministry of the HOLY SPIRIT in and through them.

Thank you for the fruit and gifts of the SPIRIT in them (Galatians 5:22, 2 Peter 1:6-7, 1 Corinthians 12:7-11).

You created us in your image and likeness.

Thus, we are all, without exception, called to reveal and glorify You.

For we have, each and every one, received a measure of You.

You refused to abandon us. So You gave Your only-begotten Son "that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16).

For You want "all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." (1 Timothy 2:4).

It is written, "When a poor man cries out, the LORD hears, and He rescues him from all his troubles." (Psalms 34:7). Today, we agree to cry out for the child soldiers.

Those who have been given weapons by adults,

Those on whom adults have placed bombs,

Those who are abused by military and mercenaries, daily, emotionally, physically, sexually, spiritually.

Those who have been told "Here it's: obey or die; kill or be killed; shut up or be beaten; die or be raped".

Those who are drugged and sent to the front lines,

Those who are prisoners, slaves of pain, hatred, remorse, fear.

Those who take drugs to forget, hoping they won't crack, won't be abandoned.

Those who are no longer accepted, who are not reintegrated.

Those who have forgotten what it was like before, who no longer know how to be, act, speak differently.

Those who no longer speak, no longer cry, no longer laugh, no longer dream.

Those that death and curses seek.

Those of the demons oppress, inhabit, and possess.

Those whom the devil has stolen almost everything.

Those whom you know and we will never know.

We pray for each one of them, wherever they are now.

Whether they have known You, know You or do not know You.

May it please You that our intercessions become mission orders for angels.

We ask for the banner of your name over these children.

For them we ask for the merits and covering of the blood of JESUS.

We pray that You remember them, as You remember our families.

It is written, "If the SON sets you free, you will truly be free." (John 8:36)

"Therefore, if anyone is in CHRIST, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. " (2 Corinthians 5:17)

In the name of JESUS, may they be set free.

JESUS, we call you into their lives.

HOLY SPIRIT, we ask for your ministry in and around them.

We pray that the Gospel will reach them, that rescue will come to them.

In the name of JESUS, the yoke of curses and oppressions be broken.

May the garment of death be torn off and the garment of CHRIST be given.

Make them aware of your love and forgiveness, so that no spirit of rejection may seize their souls.

May an oil of joy be poured on their heads.

May the broken hearts be restored.

We refuse to be silent and do nothing.

So we cry out, do what only you can do and lead to do what we can do.

Cut off the head of the dragon, destroy his seed and burn his roots.

On their journeys, we call encounters, brothers and sisters of JESUS,

Bearers of grace, witnesses of CHRIST, messengers of peace, families of adoption,

Men and women who will be your instruments in their lives.

For those whose families are looking for them, create connections and decree re-unions.

We pray for their reintegration into school. May their intelligence be restored.

In the name of JESUS, we bless them.
