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."

Isaiah 8:11-13 For the Lord spoke thus to me with his strong hand upon me, and warned me not to walk in the way of this people, saying: 12 “Do not call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy, and do not fear what they fear, nor be in dread. 13 But the Lord of hosts, him you shall honor as holy. Let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

This verse has grown to carry a lot of weight in how I interact with this world. We live in a place that is full of reactionary “takes” about life and I find those takes quite bland. It’s emoting without knowing if you’re emoting about things worth caring about. I need to care about the things of God, but so often I am distracted by what is temporary. I’m not always thinking of the things of Christ (Colossians 3), in fact, I’m probably more thinking of the world. But each day, I hope that I grow just a little better at thinking of things above so that 10 years from now, half of what I think about is holy. I’m not there yet, but I’m on the move!

Prayer:

• A young woman named “Kurin” finally opened up to our leader. He struggles with school, her sexuality, family issues, and friend issues. Pray for our leader Haley that she can partner with the Spirit well and give grace and truth well.

• We have a high school overnight in two weeks. Pray for “God moments” where we can take Jesus as we go do fun things in Omaha.

• Continue to pray for the salvation of our students. We have a great group that God keeps working in!

• Continue to pray that Allison has a healthy pregnancy!

Praises:

• Both conversations with “Jeff” and “Jake” went well. Their parents said it was so healthy for them and good for their growth

• Our volunteer party was a great time of joy, celebration, and honestly, our students serving the adults. Couldn’t ask for anything better…except maybe a few less dishes to wash

• Speaking at Lifegate on Romans 12:1-2 was wonderful. I’ve started to measure success by “did I say what I think God wanted me to say?” and less about audience feedback. I loved it!
