Satan’s All-Out War On Our Children
No matter how great the evil, God is greater still. No matter how deep the pit, God’s love is deeper still. We share this article to inspire you to pray fervently for children of all ages.
From Christian Post. Satan is not just trying to silence the next generation. He is seeking to wipe it out, declaring an all-out war on our children.
They are being slaughtered in the womb. They are being kidnapped and sold into sex slavery. They are being raped and abused and neglected and used. They are being brainwashed by their teachers and bullied by their peers. They are lost and lonely, depressed and suicidal. They cut themselves and kill themselves. Their innocence is being robbed and their security is being stolen….
Let’s look at some nationwide trends, affecting tens of millions of young people.
We’ll start with suicide. One website explains:
Suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for ages 10–24.
Suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for college-age youth and ages 12–18.
More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED.
Each day in our nation, there are an average of over 3,703 attempts by young people grades 9–12. If these percentages are additionally applied to grades 7 & 8, the numbers would be higher.
Along with issues like suicide, another website explains that, in the next 24 hours in the United States:
- 2,795 teenage girls will become pregnant.
- 15,006 teens will use drugs for the first time.
- 3,506 teens will run away.
- 2 teens will be murdered.

Over the course of their lifetime, 28% of U.S. youth ages 14 to 17 had been sexually victimized;
Children are most vulnerable to CSA [child sexual abuse] between the ages of 7 and 13.
Even more shockingly, “according to a 2003 National Institute of Justice report, 3 out of 4 adolescents who have been sexually assaulted were victimized by someone they knew well.” And in a major, government-sponsored report, “Among the eye-opening statistics shared,” was the fact that “one website on Tor hosted 1.3 million images depicting children subjected to violent sexual abuse.”
- 64% of young people, ages 13–24, actively seek out pornography weekly or more often.

Is your heart bursting yet?
So, to every demonic spirit who is dead set on destroying our children, we say, “Take your hands off our kids! They belong to us, not to you, and you will not destroy their lives. We declare this together in Jesus’ name!” Then, in the sight of God, pledge yourself afresh to be the guardians of your children. Your words must be backed by your actions….
