禱告經文 Scriptures :
約伯記 Job 28:20-28
智慧從何處來呢？ 聰明之處在哪裏呢？ 是向一切有生命的眼目隱藏， 向空中的飛鳥掩蔽。 滅沒和死亡說： 我們風聞其名。 神明白智慧的道路， 曉得智慧的所在。 因他鑒察直到地極， 遍觀普天之下， 要為風定輕重， 又度量諸水； 他為雨露定命令， 為雷電定道路。 那時他看見智慧，而且述說； 他堅定，並且查究。 他對人說：敬畏主就是智慧； 遠離惡便是聰明。
“From where, then, does wisdom come? And where is the place of understanding? It is hidden from the eyes of all living and concealed from the birds of the air. Abaddon and Death say, ‘We have heard a rumor of it with our ears.’ “God understands the way to it, and he knows its place. For he looks to the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens. When he gave to the wind its weight and apportioned the waters by measure, when he made a decree for the rain and a way for the lightning of the thunder, then he saw it and declared it; he established it, and searched it out. And he said to man, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to turn away from evil is understanding.’” (ESV)
我們尤其求主保護我們的兒童和青少年，在網絡的世界上，遠離罪惡和兒童色情的事業，不會淪為被性侵犯的受害者。 我們奉主耶穌聖名抵擋、刪除所有色情、兒童暴力和性侵犯的影片，一概連根拔起！ 現奉主耶穌聖名斥責撒旦，吩咐牠不能掠奪我們的孩子。 願我們的下一代都成為智慧人，懂得愛惜光陰，且明白主的旨意如何（以弗所書5: 15-17）。 當他們在網路上的時候，願他們有辨別的能力，能以抵擋誘惑、脫離網絡和一切透過科技帶來的擄掠和毒害。 主呀，願祢差派天使保護我們的孩子，保守他們在網路世界中有平安，當他們進行網上遊戲、及接觸社交媒體時，願祢親自遮蓋和引導他們，又賜給他們有敏銳的良知，聖靈隨時引導他們，指示他們，教導他們，使他們懂得怎樣數算自己的日子，好叫他們得著智慧的心（詩篇90:12）。
靠主耶穌基督的恩典宣告，我們的孩子正被提升，他們領受屬神的眼光，看見前路充滿生機。 這些屬神的兒女必多多興起，在主祢與他們同在中，他們必滿有勇氣力和膽量，可以抵擋試探，且能勝過社交媒體平台上和網路中所有的誘惑。 祈願他們都能攀登屬靈的高峰，迎向祢給的呼召和命定中，與祢相遇！
靠主耶穌基督的恩典，我們宣告，在班房裡有神祢創造奇工的彰顯。 願我們的下一代都能在主裡得著智慧和引導、不斷向前、進深學習。 無論在虛擬或實體的課堂中，願他們都能有深入的思考， 彼此交流、且在主裡互相連結、激勵和啟發，互動分享、愈發加增智慧、和敬畏神、高舉和尊榮祢 的心。 祝願我們的下一代均能在榮神益人中，大步邁向成長和成熟。 願他們都渴慕追求神祢的話語、又專心遵行其中，甘心樂意執行祢交付他們的使命。 願他們都積極追尋認識神祢，思想祢的智慧和知識，付出代價，向著命定邁進，直奔標竿。
“Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6:33)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
“Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” (Psalm 90:12)
May the technology, innovation, inventions and creativity in China be channels of great blessings for the next generation. May prototypes be established to reflect Your kingdom affecting every area of our lives: communication, family, education, business, government, science, healthcare, media and the arts. Let there be skilled people with expertise and wisdom who are anointed to shine with brilliance in these fields, and those you have called to be in strategic positions can use these gifts and abilities to point back to You. Talent and ability come from You, the Father of Creation.
May parents, teachers and educators have wisdom and discernment to use technology for good and may they model it for the next generation. Let the adults discern the good side of technology and tap into its potential as an opportunity so that the use of technology can be properly guarded for the children while there is advancement. May the needs of the children be met.
Protect the children and the youth from being victims of cybercrimes, child pornography and rape. May the distribution of video clips of child abuse and violence be cut to the root. Satan will not snatch the children away. May the children learn to live wisely, making use of every opportunity ahead and they understand the will of the Lord (Ephesians 5:15-17). Let the children be discerning when they are online, and they will be free from the snare of the trap that abuse of technology brings. Send angels to watch over the children while they are on the internet so that they are safe, even when they are gaming or on social media. May Your Hand be over them so that in their conscience, Your Spirit will direct their paths: teach them to number their days so that they may gain a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90:12).
We dedicate the children in Hong Kong and China to our Heavenly Father and declare the following while hybrid learning is taking place:
By Your grace, our Children are elevated to positions that allow them to see things from God’s perspective and the vast opportunities ahead, for His children will step up and seek His presence. Children in Hong Kong and China will have the courage to speak and say “no” to harm in any social media platform or any sphere online, so that they can climb up and reach the summit of Your Mountain to encounter You. They will move deeper in their calling.
By Your grace, the creative works of You, God are being released and acted on in the classroom. Our Students will receive wise counsel and move higher in their learning. In school, be it virtual or face-to-face, students will come to commune for a greater exchange of ideas and share revelation gained from the Lord with each other. There will be an impartation of wisdom, respect for God and each other, honor, reverence and maturity. They will be open and hungry for the Word and honor what You have called them to do. Our Students are thinkers and seekers of God’s wisdom and knowledge and they are prepared to walk out their destiny wherever it takes them or leads them through.
By Your grace, our children are firmly rooted in and covered with the Word and at the same time not limited to old thinking. Their process of thinking, contemplation, mind and intelligence are a “head” taller than those normally seen of their age. They can select a problem or challenge in the world and take it back up higher to seek out and apply a Heavenly solution to the problem in order to establish Your Heavenly Kingdom in the earth.
In the name of Yeshua Hamaschiach, Amen.
