Evangelist and author Anne Graham Lotz wrote a prayer for America’s future and the nation’s youth that quickly went viral, drawing hundreds of comments of appreciation. In the prayer on her social media accounts, Lotz wrote, “We are in a spiritual and moral free fall.” She called it a “Prayer For Future Generations,” which received over 12,000 likes and 900 comments on Instagram.

Lotz is the daughter of Billy Graham, the minister and evangelist. She’s also written several books like “The Daniel Prayer,” “The Light of His Presence,” “Fixing My Eyes on Jesus,” and “Jesus in Me.” Lotz wrote in her prayer, “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, You have been our dwelling place throughout the generations. Your faithfulness, Your fame, Your promises, Your covenant, Your authority, and Your glory continue year after year, decade after decade, century after century, millennium after millennium. You have not changed since the beginning. Your Word is forever settled.”

She continued, “As I consider my generation and the ones that follow, I am appalled.” Then, Lotz described how the world and America are morally declining. She said that the great darkness of unbelief, ignorance, lies, and evil covers the world, and people live as though God doesn’t exist. She’s afraid to think about what future generations will face unless they rebuild the foundation of genuine faith. Lotz said if that doesn’t happen, the nation will crumble because it’s crumbling now.

Lotz continued, “In the midst of political turmoil, racial division, social upheaval, financial uncertainty, virus pandemics, and worldwide chaos, I earnestly pray for my children and grandchildren.” She concluded the prayer by saying that God is society’s only hope. Lotz prayed,  “Redeem my parenting mistakes and failures,” she prayed. “Help my children and grandchildren overcome the consequences of my sins. Keep them from falling away from You into sin. I long to see them one day presented before Your glorious presence without fault and with great joy. On that day, I will humbly bow and worship You for Your goodness, grace, and faithfulness to all generations. For the glory of Your great name – Jesus, Amen.”
