  • “Where is God in the midst of these high schools shootings? How do we better support our youth?” Dr. Morris Cerullo


“As explosions and gunfire thundered through the halls, Cassie Bernall closed her eyes and clasped her hands in prayer. One of the killers pointed a shotgun at her and asked if she believed in God. She said, “Yes … ” and then he killed her. According to one student whose life was barely spared, “It was like they were having the time of their life.”

On April 20, 1999, two students went on a shooting rampage at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. In chaos and smoke, they stole the lives of twelve students, one teacher, and wounded twenty-three others before turning their guns on themselves. It has now been nearly twenty years since this tragic incident. There have been many tragedies in the past and since. Nearly two weeks ago, a school shooting at Santa Fe High school in Texas, once again shook the nation. In the last five months, there have been 28 school shootings in the United States. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of these massacres.

Each incident recirculates the same probing questions and an endless search for difficult answers. What could possibly motivate these young students to carry out such heinous acts? Could it be that all the violence we are witnessing today, especially from the young people, is a direct consequence of entire generations turning their backs on God?

Ever since Lucifer and all the angels that sided with him were cast down from heaven to earth, their goal has always been to cause God’s children to reject Him and His ways. Western culture has departed from God. Satan has successfully removed God from secular schools. Television, music, social media, and the internet are constant distractions and have made the family—especially the young people—extremely vulnerable to ungodly influences of the mass media.

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

Genesis 6:11—12

Positive change will not come unless society turns to God for help. We are sitting at the brink of the greatest outpouring of the Spirit of God the world has ever known; but at the same time, we are also sitting on the brink of the greatest battle with Satan the family has ever known.

Today’s society as a whole has abandoned our spiritual, God-centered heritage, and switched to a man-centered culture that excludes God and His laws. Such noble qualities as integrity, honor, character, reverence, humility, generosity, civility, and compassion were virtues encouraged and commended by God for all people. For centuries, our laws were established according to God’s standards. Our morality was judged according to the Word of God. But, that is no longer the case!

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

James 4:7

Today, God-fearing parents, grandparents, and family members must spend a great deal of time in prayer … protecting the minds and hearts of our children from all the ungodly influences that surround them.

Train up your child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6

Furthermore, the family is the center of ministry. We’ve often heard, “A family that prays together stays together.” We strongly encourage every family to spend time in prayer. Establish a regular time to come together, for prayer and to share God’s Word. If you want to influence your family, you must go the extra mile to understand them and establish a relationship with them. If you want them to listen to you, you must first listen to them.


As we speak from my heart, “Papa’s” heart … I’d like to also include the wisdom of my anointed soulmate and wife, Theresa, or “Mama” … to share what God has placed in her heart. She is an ardent advocate of traditional family values, and spends much time on her knees praying for the needs of families. Open your spirit to receive something special … I know you will be blessed!

“The young people of this nation are desperately searching for the REAL thing! We need to take our masks off! Our children need to see us seek God with all of our hearts, each and every day. We need to let them know how important Jesus is to us … how important His plan is in our lives. We need to scream through active, living examples what it is to know Him in the power of His resurrection. Without godly parents, without godly role models in their families, they are forced to find their answers elsewhere.”

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love for one to another.

John 13:35

It is no wonder Satan has, since the beginning of time, done everything in his power to corrupt, pervert, and destroy the traditional family structure ordained and structured by God.

“The devil is not afraid of us, but he is afraid of Jesus. He is afraid of the badge and the authority that we wear because we do not stand alone. We stand with Jesus.”

Dr. Morris Cerullo

Jesus destroyed the works of Satan … He settled it on Calvary! Now it’s up to you to rise up in the Spirit, and use the authority to put Satan in his place … UNDER YOUR FEET!

It is God’s will that you and your family function according to His divine plan. It is God’s will that your family experience the fullness He originally intended you to have.

Right now, stop and think about the areas of your family life where you are living below God’s original plan and purpose. You may be facing problems with communication, a wayward son or daughter, a struggling marriage, death of a spouse, or lack of family time … Whatever the problems may be that are hindering you and your family from enjoying God’s best, make up your mind right now that you will overcome them in the Name of Jesus.

When you pray, I encourage you to invoke the power of the Holy Spirit, release the righteous fire of God, and bind the spirit of secular humanism! Loose the spirit of family unity!

Say this faith declaration out loud: “Lord, I pray over my family. I pray over the minds, hearts, and spirits of our youth. In Jesus’ Name, we pray.”

Scripture Reading:

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

James 4:7

Train up your child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with his might by his Spirit in the inner man…that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us…

Ephesians 3:14—21

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43: 18—19
