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

Ryan Pramberg - Youth for Christ

“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."

Some weeks are like last week, where I get discouraged, I think that the darkness is winning. When sin is revealed in the lives of multiple people and there’s pain in the pain. But Jesus reminds me, “I’m the healed, I’ve been drawing the whole time. They’re with you, doesn’t that mean that I’m present?” So I thought, of the 12 kids going to RED Weekend, I started relationships with exactly one of them, Jesus drew ALL of them by HIMSELF. But the fact that they’re there, weekly, listening to the truth, receiving love, and seeing a glimpse of Jesus, means the light, our savior, is actually on the offensive, not the defensive. So darkness, be put on notice, because Jesus wins and I believe they wouldn’t be there if Jesus wasn’t working behind the scenes on a dozen different hearts, softening them for the truth of Jesus, even as darkness claws and scrapes for handholds at a soul that is slipping away from them into the safe hands of Jesus. Hope is rising…and found in Jesus.

Every so often we have huge events where we get loving adults with extended time with teenagers. This weekend is RED Weekend, where we get a whole weekend to do just that. There are 207 students going, 12 of whom are from Millard North. Let me ask that you pray for 2 or 3 of these students as they go through this weekend. In all of it would you pray against the darkness with me, that evil would be bound? Pray for wisdom for our leaders in conversation and clarity for our speaker in delivery. Thank you in advance!

“Jeff” He got caught up in some poor choices his semester and was suspended for a few weeks. Praying he meets Jesus this weekend

“Steve” He’s knows Jesus and said last week “I finally realized how much I’ve put my identity in what other people think of me. I want what Jesus thinks of me.” He’s so close to jumping in deeply with Jesus. I’m praying this weekend is a line in the sand moment for him.

“Gerald” We’ve been praying for him for 3 years. Drugs, sex, and he’s loves the darkness. But he’s attracted to the light and shows up each week. Praying this weekend he finally is drawn to the light!

“Wyatt” He knows Jesus and I’m praying he grows in Jesus as he helps steer conversations toward Jesus

“Amy” She knows Jesus and is at a turning point. Praying this helps dive her deeper into her wounds and deeper into his healing

“Christy” Again, knows Jesus and I LOVE her heart for her peers. Even as she heals herself, she wants others to hear about her Savior. Pray she has a great weekend as she herself hears truth and grows in Jesus!

“Kari” It’s been a long year for her between moves, changes, life, and growing. I’m praying this weekend she realizes Jesus is worth it, he’s good ALWAYS, and she heals of some of the past hurts in her life.

“Mary” We don’t know her story yet, but I know she’s been grounded extensively for choices she made this summer. Praying she shares her story and encounters Jesus.

“Teri” New to Campus Life and doesn’t know Jesus. She’s in the dark, but last week said “I don’t know why I keep coming here but it’s the only place I feel like I can be myself.” That my friends, is Jesus.

“Grace” Has made recent poor choices with her boyfriend. It’s really fresh emotionally for everyone, so there’s a lot of wounds that are still bleeding. I’m praying she can open up and find the freedom that Jesus offers, forgiveness that’s real, and satisfaction that is deeper than sin.

“Chad” Again, praying for 3 years. Drugs and sex, and he also loves the darkness. In fact, he’s quite against the light and has revealed zero to nothing about himself for 3 years. I’m praying he opens up this weekend. I’m praying he reveals his real hurts. I’m praying he listens to Jesus and meets the real love, grace, healing, and forgiveness that he offers.

“Annie” Drugs, alcohol, and sex, that’s her life. She has said that the best things in her life and doesn’t have the greatest home life. I’m praying that she is also open to what Jesus offers. REAL life.

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.

Continued Prayers:

1. 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!

2. I’m praying for 3 more female volunteers for our Millard North middle school club.

PRAISES:

The Brookside Retreat was incredible. I enjoyed every minute of it. I got so many encouraging texts and emails from you all as I got to speak the truth of the word of God. Lives were transformed, kids shared about the deep parts of their hearts; suicide, cutting, tobacco, relationships, it all came out with loving adults who are still in relationship with him. Praying for their souls as they come off the “camp high” and are back in the situations they left. You did the work of prayer and for that I’m so thankful. Beyond grateful. THANKS!
