Join others for a time of prayer:

Wednesday: A group meets at the West Campus on 180th 2 blocks North of Dodge at 4:00 pm in room W 10/11.
 

If we can pray for you, please submit your request on the Prayer Wall.

 
So, how do we pray? Jesus taught us how to pray in Matthew 6:9-13. Jesus said, “This, then, is how you should pray.” He did not say this is what you should say, but rather this is how you should pray. The Lord’s prayer gives four specific things to pray about. One of the best ways to remember these four things is through the acronym P.R.A.Y.
 

PRAISE

Tell God thanks for who He is and what He has done. Our Father in heaven, hollowed be your name.” (Matthew 6:9a) See also: 1 Chronicles 29:10-13

 

REPENT

Confess your sins to God. Tell him how sorry you are for them and that you need His forgiveness. Ask God for strength not to do the sin again. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” (Matthew 6:12) See also: Psalm 51:1-12

 

ASK

Give your requests to God. Give us today our daily bread.” And “lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.” (Matthew 6:11 & 6:13) See also: Ephesians 6:19-20

 

YIELD

Spend time submitting to God that His will be done in your life. Spend time quietly listening to God. Your kingdom done, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10) See also: Matthew 26:39 & Psalm 46:10a

“O God, we want this work kept on a miracle basis. We want everyone to know that God's hand is on this movement. We want folks to see that this is too big and too great for any person or group of people to accomplish by themselves. We want folks to say God did it."

Prayer Warriors,

Let me briefly challenge us with something I learned from the Lord. The lottery was recently an astronomical number somewhere around $1.5 billion dollars. I chose NOT to buy a ticket for a number of reasons, but the biggest being what the Lord showed me. Even with $1.5 billion, we could live off it and give it away continually. It would take a while, but eventually, it would all be gone. My God owns the “cattle on a thousand hills” (Ps. 50:10) and he “gives from the spring of the water of life without payment” (Rev. 21:6). He doesn’t run out of resources and always provides for us (Matt. 6:25-34). For Allison and I, he’s always provided in the past, even last month as he squashed our final grants. So I know that as we transition to a smaller income, it will continue to be enough because he always provides and I can rest in faith, and work as he directs, that ultimately he’ll take care of it!

I apologize for the length as there are many students and events in need of prayer. As we often do, pick one or two to pray for as you have time!

Prayer requests:

1. Pray for our high school group. We have 6-8 kids in a self-titled “bad kids group.” We got to have a gut level conversation a few weeks ago where all of them admitted to smoking, drinking, and a few to sex. Some started these deviant behaviors as easy as 11 and 12. They do not yet see the destructive nature of their choices, nor have a desire to change. But we I did get to say this clearly last week: “I love you and want you to know, one person believes in you. But don’t for one second think that I am an idiot or that I think the choices you’re making a wise or good. I’m here because I’m waiting for the moment, in the near future or far future, where you want to change, and I’ll be that first phone call.” It wasn’t an earth shattering moment for any of them at the time, but I think our love for them will continue to pay dividends in the future!

2. Keep praying for Jason and Christie Currie. The most recent tests showed that the cancer remains present and a threat. Outside of a miracle from the Lord, the diagnosis is not good. But I know the God we serve is a God of miracles and a God of the 11th hour. He always shows up at exactly the right time. So we continue to pray and wait expectantly.

3. I speak at Brookside church’s fall retreat Nov. 9-11. Pray for me as I listen to Jesus, to speak in truth and grace (John 1:14, 18), but also for the hearts of the teens and adults listening.

4. Pray for RED Weekend Nov. 16-18. Specifically, that we get 7 guys and 7 girls to attend and that money isn’t an object to keep them from coming. So far, we have 2 girls signed up (with 3 more working on it) and zero boys (with 1 confirmed working on it.)

Continued Prayers:

1. Continuing to pray that the least, lonely, and lost join Campus Life. We have some incredible leaders ready to love them well!

2. In Nov. and Dec. I’m working to ask 10 more people if they’d join our financial support team. With Jason (our executive director) helping his wife go through cancer treatment, we’re stepping up our staffs fundraising efforts to fill some of the gap he normally would. It’s an honor and privilege to invite people into our current work!
