We all know that prayer is valuable for Christians, and this has become part of everyday life. The prayers for young people is not to distract them, but it is an ordinance of our Lord to propagate his relationship with God and for spiritual growth, this will help to lead the days with greater tranquility and wisdom.
The Catholic prayers dedicated to young people are of great importance, their inclusion allows them to drain and instruct themselves to speak from their hearts.
What is the purpose of prayer?
In a way, prayer is one of the most mysterious aspects of the Christian journey. There are times when young people wonder: if God really listens to his prayers, if prayers really have any results for our lives, what is permissible to pray about, how should one pray, and so on. So why do we do it? It is very simple to explain.
When we decide to pray we do not do it to convince God, much less to get what we want; the reason why we should pray is so that God’s will and his purposes are in our hearts. We pray primarily to God to guide us to put into practice his purposes (Matthew 6:10 says; Your kingdom come. Your will be done, as it is in heaven, so also on earth.).

Short Christian prayers for young people
This prayer is especially for those moments of anguish, when young people feel lost and go through hard times:
“Lord, I am here before you to ask your forgiveness if I have offended or failed you at any time,
if I have forgotten your love for me, forgive me;
Jesus, thank you because you are always with me to listen to each of my pleas and words;
At the same time, I ask your forgiveness because sometimes young people do not know how to value everything you give us,
I ask you for wisdom to understand your will.
Lord, I ask you so that today’s young people can follow your path,
so that tomorrow when we are adults we will be the best people,
Thank you sir for listening to me today,
help me to love you even more, to value you more and to love you moreAmen.”
Beautiful Prayer of a Teenager to God
Continuing with the prayers for young Catholics, we present a prayer entitled “Beautiful Prayer”:
I ask you for the young people who are the hope of the whole world,
I do not ask you to remove corruption, but to remove them from it.
do not let the young get carried away with evil and petty ideologies,
make them discover the most important thing in life: not to have more or power, but to serve more and love more.
Father, teach all the young men of my youth,
in which I grow, that the truth is good, liberates,
breaks chains, drives away injustice and makes men good.
Father, I wish that each of the young people have a big heart,
full of love, universal and speaks all languages,
that the color of the skin does not matter to him but the love.
Father, teach all the young people of this generation to be good,
kind, since they do not know the borders,
that they love their brothers as much as you love us,Amen.”
Prayer for all those young people who we want to see grow and improve in this generation:
“To you Lord, I address myself with all that I am,
what I live and what I bring to you, from my trust to the love I have for you;
Lord, for your son Jesus we are here today,
In search of your love and happiness, I know that with all your spirit you love us,
you encourage us, encourage us and teach us to walk the path of good;
Lord, make us all recognize your path and follow each of your steps,
make us good people, honest and full of love for giving,
to each one of our brothers, to each family, to each street child,
to each young person who lives a difficult moment, make us people in your image and likeness;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord,Amen.”
Young people require God but also their parents or an adult who accompanies them for strength and encouragement because it is we, the elders, who provide them with that source of wisdom as well as being the intermediary between them and God. Let’s pray for them.
